Submit a Proposal for a Science Research Conference
FASEB Science Research Conferences began in 1982 to promote dialogue between investigators in the biomedical field. These international conferences welcome prominent scientists, faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students working in areas experiencing rapid scientific advances or cutting-edge research. Meetings are traditionally small, averaging between 100-150 participants, and are held over four to five days with scientific sessions in the mornings and evenings. FASEB SRCs provide ample networking opportunities for both seasoned scientists and junior investigators, as attendees are encouraged to present posters and short talks, eat meals together, and converse with leaders in the field during “Meet the Expert” sessions.
Conferences may be scheduled throughout the year, but most are held between May and September. Popular destinations for these conferences in the United States include Saxtons River, Vermont, Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Big Sky, Montana, and Snowmass, Colorado. Recent international locations include Italy, Japan, Greece, and the Bahamas.
Anyone holding an advanced medical or doctoral degree, and are active in the scientific community, may submit a proposal to hold a conference with FASEB. Written proposals are processed and submitted annually in November to the SRC Advisory Committee for formal review and consideration.
Although the SRC Advisory Committee is comprised of representatives from FASEB member societies, it is not necessary for a potential conference organizer to be a member of a FASEB society in order to submit a proposal to the Committee.
To submit a proposal, please review our guidelines and submit an email to Robin Crawford, CMP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate “Proposal Decision” and the year of the proposed conference in the subject line of the email.
For conferences held in 2016, the deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, September 22, 2014.
For conferences held in 2017, the deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, September 21, 2015.
