The Society welcomes groups of members, organized along scientific or geographic boundaries, to hold an ancillary meeting during the Annual Meeting for the purpose of business meeting, networking, and social interactions, but not to present scientific programs. If approved by the Society, groups holding ancillary meetings will be provided space in the convention center for their events and the time and location of the event will be listed in the printed program.

Criteria for holding an Ancillary Meeting

Please note that ancillary meetings may not be scheduled in conflict with scientific sessions at the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting.

Requests for meeting space must be submitted in writing to the Biophysical Society office no later than Saturday, September 30, 2018.

Your request must include the following:

  • A description of the meeting and its purpose
  • Estimated attendance
  • Desired room setup
  • A statement of how the meeting, if approved, should be announced in the Program.

The Biophysical Society is a scientific and international organization, and each request will be evaluated on these two criteria.

If approved, the Society will provide contacts for food and beverage as well as audio visual needs at the Convention Center.

Please submit proposals to the Society Office at [email protected]
