ESBC holds an annual meeting and symposium, usually in October. The meeting and symposium are both open to the public, and anyone who is interested is encouraged to attend.
Our executive committee meets twice a year.
Student awards and scholarships
Prizes for best contributed student talks and travel awards are available for meeting participants and presented at the annual meeting.
See our awards and scholarships page for details.
In light of the Covid-19 restrictions, the 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of ESBC will be held as a virtual meeting on Zoom on October 26th – 28th. The current plan is to only meet for half a day on each of these days.
The Symposium presentation submission deadline is October 10th, 2020.
