Interest groups

Call for proposals

Deadline: Aug. 15

The goal of the interest group sessions is to build communities. Interest group sessions will be scheduled on the first day of the meeting, Saturday, March 25, 2023, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. You will be notified of your assigned time in October. Interest group sessions are limited to two hours with a minimum of 20 minutes of the two-hour allotment dedicated to networking.

We are looking for members to organize interest group sessions and commit to continued interest group networking in MeetUp areas in the exhibit hall throughout the meeting to help foster communities.

  • At least one organizer of the interest group session must be a professor/investigator level and the co-organizers may be either an assistant or associate professor.
  • The ASBMB requires presenter diversity (race, gender, institution).
  • In order to provide unique content and broaden participation at #DiscoverBMB, individuals who are selected to present at the interest group sessions may not present in another #DiscoverBMB session.
  • Acceptance of a proposal will be based on the strength of the proposal and the needs and capacity of the meeting.
  • Organizers must submit their proposal by Aug. 15.
  • Decision notifications will be sent by Sept. 15.
