Call for 2015 Thematic Meeting Proposals

Proposal Deadline: July 11, 2013

Each year the Biophysical Society sponsors focused-topic meetings for 150–300 attendees organized by Society members. The Society provides partial financial support of approximately $10,000 for these meetings, in addition to meeting management, including all web and onsite components.

The Society has sponsored these thematic meetings, which have been held in various locations around the world, since 2010. These meetings are unique and exciting because they bring together researchers who do not otherwise attend the same events, bringing different perspectives to address common problems.

The Society is now calling for proposals for 2015 thematic meetings. Complete submissions will be considered by the Thematic Meetings Committee and, pending review, organizers will be contacted for additional information. The Committee’s final recommendations will be submitted to the Society’s Council for approval in November.
