BioEM2014 - the next joint annual scientific meeting of EBEA and BEMS - will take place 8 - 13 June 2014  in Cape Town, South Africa.


As Technical Program Co-chairs for BioEM2014, we encourage members of the two societies to suggest ideas for plenary sessions, which may take the form of scientific lectures, reports on current research, or tutorials.


In addition, at BioEM2013 we organized sessions (“workshops”) convened on the initiative of Society members, and we want to invite proposals for sessions like this again in 2014. Although we cannot provide support from the meeting budget for speakers for these special interest or exploratory sessions, they will be a part of the published program.


Please submit proposal outlines (for plenaries or workshop sessions), including topic, justification, proposed speaker list, and (for the "workshop" sessions only) the names and qualifications of two proposed convenors by e-mail to before October 14, 2013.


Proposals will be evaluated and acceptance notifications will be sent before the end of November. The submission deadline for special session papers is the same as for regular papers.
