Event Request Submission

Any BMES Member, Committee or Special Interest Group (SIG) requesting to have a special event (social event, workshop, session, symposium, special meeting, etc.) added to the BMES Annual Meeting outside the parameters of the abstract submission process must submit an event request form. Requests are due February 15, 2018

Except for special circumstances, requests will be slotted into one of the three main 90-minute platform session times (roughly 8:00-9:30 am, 1:30-3:00 pm or 3:00-4:30 pm) and session rooms will be set as theater seating and equipped with standard AV to include PC-compatible computer with a USB port and Power Point along with an LCD projector, screen and a lectern with microphone. Any food and beverage costs or costs over and above the standard AV and set up will be the responsibility of the organizer.

The Annual Meeting Co-Chairs will review the proposal and if necessary, seek the counsel of the National Meetings Committee, BMES Executive Committee and/or full Board of Directors. If approved, the activity may be added to the Annual Meeting on a date and time determined by the Meeting Co-Chairs based on availability. Requests and preferences will be taken into account, but are not guaranteed.
