We will also have dedicated posters sessions each evening and we are working to ensure that both you and the poster presenters are given ample time throughout the meeting to explore this body of work.
The final evening, Thursday 12th of June, will be the main SMBE social evening. This will be a ticketed event ($100.00) and will take place in the ‘Old Casino’, the Antiguo Casino in the San Juan Old Town. Tickets for this event will be limited, but it’s sure to be a great carnival atmosphere so book your tickets early.
The abstract system is now closed for submissions for oral presentations but will remain open for poster presentations only and the deadline for poster submissions is March 18th.
See you there!
