The 2020 BMES Annual Meeting is now 100% virtual! 

In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic and our members' concerns about travel, BMES collaborated with our San Diego colleagues in the city, the convention center, and our host hotels to bring the 2020 BMES Annual Meeting to you!

Please "save-the-dates" of October 14-17 for a four-day completely virtual experience with your BME community. We are working hard on the details and look forward to sharing more with you when online registration opens in August.

We know you have questions, and we are working on the answers. Feel free to email us at membership@bmes.org. More meeting details are coming soon!

The special summer submission for undergraduates is now open.  Submitters/Presenters
must be undergraduates at the time for the 2020 BMES Annual Meeting. Therefore current seniors or those graduating before the Annual Meeting should submit in the general scientific program because they will not be eligible for this special summer submission.
