Guidelines For Special Functions at EB 2018
If you are a special event organizer interested in planning your own function at EB 2018, please complete the online entry site to request your meeting space.
All special functions will be scheduled at the San Diego Convention Center or the San Diego Marriott based upon availability. Organizers will be informed of their room assignment in late January, 2018. The following guidelines must be followed by all organizers wishing to hold a meeting:
- Organizers must ensure that the primary objective of the meeting (the exchange of scientific information) is preserved;
- Organizers must encourage the free flow of ideas and information on any subject of possible interest to our membership consistent with above;
- This does not apply to social events such as university receptions.
The Experimental Biology Management Office will assign space for Event Orders taking place at the San Diego Convention Center or the San Diego Marriott. Requests for space will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis
. All requests except social receptions must be submitted to a sponsoring society (see below for contact information). If you are not affiliated with a sponsoring society please contact Michele McDermott at firstname.lastname@example.org
The title of the event will be listed in the program exactly as submitted. The use of the words “session”, “symposium”, and “workshop” are not permitted.
In order to be listed in the program, the deadline for special function submissions must be received by December 16, 2017
