Annual Conference Session Proposals


SEB Members can submit proposals and funding request to organise a session at the SEB Annual  Conference.

If your proposal is successful, you are likely to be the main organiser for that session and will liaise closely with the SEB Events Team, who will provide full secretariat support. 

See full details about how you have submit a proposal to organise a session here.

Symposium proposals 

The Animal Section runs a symposium every two years and proposals for meeting topics are welcome from SEB members.

To submit a proposal on a specific topic to be run as a focused symposium, you will need to complete a symposium proposal form and send it to us by email. Your proposal will then passed to the relevant section secretary for consideration at the next meeting of the committee. The Meetings Committee decides on the proposals. 

If your proposal is successful, you are likely to be the main organiser for the symposium and will liaise closely with the SEB Events Team, who will provide full secretariat support.

You can also contact Eniola Alalade on e.alalade@sebiology.org if you have any queries about proposals for meetings.
