Society for Endocrinology - a world-leading authority on hormones


What’s new for attendees at SfE BES 2019?



Bringing together a new programme, a focus on building the Endocrine Network communities, new presentation areas and sessions, you'll find more value than ever before at our connected endocrine community.

With these changes, there will be something new for everyone! Whether you're a first-time attendee or a seasoned SfE BES veteran make sure you take the time to explore what's on offer for you this year.

Don't forget to let your colleagues and peers know about this exciting opportunity as well, so that they can avoid the disappointment of being left out of this year's most important endocrine conference.


What's new?

To minimise the chance of frustrating clashes we have now reduced the parallel streams from 4 to 3. Furthermore this year we have ensured that oral communications run in parallel and symposia are timetabled together. This helps to emphasise their importance within the meeting, while also allowing you to choose the content you most want to see.

We also recognise the need to provide more time to network, visit the exhibition hall and comfortably attend industry symposia. Lunch has therefore been extended to 90 minutes ensuring ample time to experience all the conference has to offer.

You’ll also find time to network with new faces and old friends on Monday afternoon. Anyone not wishing to attend the Oral Communications will find extra opportunities to network during this time, which is of value to attending Scientists.

The Society's Endocrine Networks bring together communities of SfE members working in a particular field of endocrinology. Connect with your peers and meet international leaders in your area of expertise through our focussed oral communications, symposia and meet the expert sessions.

On Wednesday you can also attend an Endocrine Network session unique to your specialism. This provides you the opportunity to meet colleagues experiencing similar challenges as well those looking to collaborate.

You can also join your peers in your endocrine network at the SfE Networking Lounge during the Wednesday breaks.

The Society has Endocrine Networks for the following areas:

  • Metabolic and Obesity

  • Bone and Calcium

  • Adrenal and Cardiovascular

  • Reproductive Endocrinology and Biology

  • Thyroid

  • Neuroendocrinology

  • Endocrine Neoplasia Syndromes

  • Endocrine Consequences of Living with and Beyond Cancer

Please note that for the purpose of the 2019 SfE BES scientific programme there will be 6 focus areas from the above Network Sessions which have been combined for the purpose of the programme topics.

A brand new presentation area - the 'SfE Theatre' - in this year’s exhibition hall provides even more opportunities to learn

Exhibiting lightning talks and product demonstrations from sponsors, as well as talks from leading endocrinologists, this is a key area for important updates in your speciality.

Three brand new parallel sessions will cover clinical, scientific and industry innovation.

Attend and increase your understanding of novel technologies, innovative clinical practice and the latest developments in research.

For 2019, the programme has been carefully put together to ensure relevant content for nurses across three days.

This includes adjusting the programme to ensure that the two dedicated nurses’ symposia avoid clashes with the equally valuable 'How do i?' sessions .

Furthermore the nurses’ social evening on Monday gives you the chance to meet and network with fellow nurses from across the UK in an informal setting.
