The SMBE funds a number of awards each year and these include among others the Walter M. Fitch Award Competition as well as an Undergraduate Mentoring Program Award. Details of all the awards can be found here on the SMBE 2014 website. We hope you will support our award nominees by taking the time to view their presentations and posters during the meeting.
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 ($TBC) 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 open and the deadline for submissions is January 27th.
Online Registration will open soon and you will be able to book your accommodation and social events through this system.
We are really looking forward to #SMBE14. Make sure to keep up to date with all the meeting developments through our facebook and twitter accounts by using #smbe14 and be sure to tell your friends and colleagues.
