As co-chairs of the 2021 BMES Annual Meeting, we want to welcome you to the new and improved #BMES2021 experience! Mark your calendars for October 6-9, 2021, so you can join us in Orlando, FL — in-person or virtually. We have so much in store for you to get excited about, but it all starts with science. That's why we want our members, the best and brightest in the BME field, to shine at our annual meeting. To do so, we want you to submit your best work for the opportunity to be featured this year amongst a community of peers also looking to find innovative ways to make healthcare magical.

The most significant change you will notice is the new abstract system we implemented to give you a more user-friendly experience. To help you put your best foot forward, we provided comprehensive instructions on the abstract submission site. Please take some time to read everything thoroughly to ensure your submission is not eliminated from consideration.

Please note that due to health and safety concerns and the need for social distancing, the total number of accepted abstracts for in-person presentations will be lower compared to previous years making this year highly competitive. 

We want you to join us in celebrating the leadership and accomplishments of those who have made the most significant impact in our community. If you know a colleague who is making a difference, nominate them for a BMES award today! We are also accepting nominations for BMES Fellows.

Another exciting piece of news for this year that we've been waiting to share with you is the addition of two new tracks — "Global Health Technologies" and "Women's Health." These tracks will open pathways for innovative research to further advance biomedicine. We hope you're just as excited as we are. 
Whether you plan to join us in-person or virtually, this will be the year you don't want to miss! #BMES2021

Stay tuned for more – you never know what magic we’ll conjure up next!
