The Local Sections Committee will have a table at this year’s annual meeting in New Orleans.

Local Sections of SIMB provide a valuable service in providing forums for those scientists who are unable to attend national meetings. They also provide a more social atmosphere where new friendships and future employment contacts can be made. The Local Sections Committee of SIMB is also in the process of soliciting Student Local Sections. The goals of the student sections would be very similar, to foster new friendships, establish a social and professional network and most importantly further scientific interactions.

If you would like more information on how to start a local section or student section please stop by our table in the SIMB Registration Area, 5th floor, during registration hours

Recently SIMB underwent some server changes and web maintenance. Because of this maintenance, there have been some service interruptions to the SIMB email system. If you have emailed SIMB between Saturday, May 28 through Monday, June 6, please resend your email. We apologize for this inconvenience.

The SIMB website will be undergoing maintenance beginning at 8pm Friday, May 27 through 9pm Sunday, May 29. During this time there may be service interruptions and portions of the site may temporarily be down during this time.

This will not affect the membership area (access to online versions of SIMB News and JIMB), online meeting registration for the Annual Meeting (the registration form will not be available while the site is undergoing maintenance), or abstract submissions for RAMC. Those areas will remain functional during this update. We thank you for your patience.
