Registration

Registration Information

 There are three (3) steps to attending and presenting at BEM 2024 (April 10-14, 2024; Charleston SC) :

  1. Everyone must register for the Conference (whether you are presenting or not) via Whova. Deadlines for early registration are March 1, 2024 and for late registration are March 24, 2024 (see below for costs).  Whova calls all payments “tickets” so you will purchase a “ticket” for meeting registration. You may also choose to purchase a “ticket” for the BEM Banquet (Saturday, April 13th at the SC Aquarium) and/or a “ticket” for the 2024 BEM Conference shirt (long-sleeve rashguard). If you don’t wish to have all of these “tickets” on the same credit card, there is an option to pay for your registration only and then do an “add-on” registration to pay for the banquet and t-shirt using a different credit card. More details on this are found at Abstract Submissions

  2. Register Now on Whova
  3. Reserve a hotel room as soon as possible, and at the latest by March 8, 2024. For information, see Hotel & Transportation

  4. Submit an abstract. Once your registration has been received, you will be sent a link for abstract submission via email. For more information see abstract submission.Please submit an abstract as soon as possible. We will not accept abstracts after March 24, 2024. Also, the earlier you submit your abstract, the more likely you are to receive your high preference format (oral vs poster) and Session topic.
