Posters are being printed, and unveiled in all their glory on the office floor to people wanting to get a sneaky peek. PowerPoint’s have spell checked, saved, resaved and saved again. Emails, texts and/or Facebook messages are being enthusiastically sent to friends and colleagues, arranging catch-ups to speak about stories, triumphs and occasions that have occurred over the past 18 months. The final countdown to SfE BES 2015 has begun!
As you eagerly await the chance to experience the events ahead, you start to look at the all-important SfE BES 2015 programme. Where do I start? What am I going to see? These are just some of the questions that start to flood your mind as you begin to appreciate what lies ahead.
As well as symposia sessions, there are a series of medal lectures recognising the significant contributions other endocrinologists have made to endocrine research. Want to develop new skills? Check out “Skills” workshops such as “Early Career Symposium.” Not sure what the future has in store for you? Get involved with the “Futures” sessions. Join a “Meet the Expert” session or team up with others to celebrate the accomplishments of fellow early career endocrinologists in the Early Career prize lectures and session.
SfE BES 2015 is not only about appreciating superb endocrine research. It is also about networking. Make the most of the pre-conference mixer and Early Career lounge at break times. Mingle at the welcome reception, before joining forces with others to win the Early Career quiz. Dress up for the conference dinner and enjoy great food, fabulous company and a laugh or two on the dance floor.
The best thing about SfE BES 2015 is that it’s your chance to get involved. So here’s to a superb conference, full of science, fun, laughter and networking.
