Call for 2014 Thematic Meetings

Proposal Deadline: July 6, 2012

Each year the Biophysical Society sponsors focused-topic meetings for 150-300 attendees organized by Society members. The Society provides partial financial support in the range of $10,000 for these meetings, in addition to meeting management. Since their inception in 2010, these meetings have been held throughout the world. What makes these thematic meetings unique is that they bring together researchers in different areas who do not otherwise attend the same conferences, but work on the same topics from different perspectives. Bringing these individuals and approaches together is the essence of biophysics.

The Society is now calling for proposals for 2014 thematic meetings. Complete submissions will be considered by the Thematic Meetings Committee and, pending review, organizers will be contacted for additional more detailed information. The Committee’s final recommendations will be submitted to the Society’s Executive Board for approval in late October.
