Virtual SMB 2021

June 13-17, 2021

Conference Information

The focus of the SMB2021 will be on two important topics in the sciences today:

Translational Science and the Promotion of Diversity, Equality and Inclusion.

We are excited to virtually host the meeting on behalf of the University of California Riverside (UCR) along with the inclusion of most colleges and universities in California!

While COVID-19 continues spreading across the world, the Society for Mathematical Biology is keeping the health and safety of our members as our top priority. To reduce or slow the spread of infection, we will hold our 2021 Annual Meeting in a virtual form between June 13-17, 2021. We acknowledge that many are facing challenging personal and/or professional circumstances, but we hope that our virtual Annual Meeting will allow our community to stay connected, share research, and support each other. The meeting will be held 24 hours a day to maximize the participation of people across the world.
