See below for the bold new changes SfE BES is taking to enhance your conference experience.
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.
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.
The Society's Endocrine Networks bring together communities of SfE members working in particular fields of endocrinology. Connect with peers and international leaders in your area of expertise for a range of focussed oral communications, symposia and meet the expert sessions throughout the conference.
On Wednesday you can also attend a focussed networking session unique to your specialism. This will provide you opportunities to meet colleagues experiencing similar challenges as well as peers also looking for opportunities to collaborate.
The Society has Endocrine Networks for the following areas:
- Metabolic and Obesity
- Bone and Calcium
- Adrenal and Cardiovascular
- Reproductive Endocrinology and Biology
- Endocrine Neoplasia Syndromes
- Endocrine Consequences of Living with and Beyond Cancer
These 8 Endocrine Networks each have a dedicated hour-long networking session connecting all delegates within their field. These sessions enable you to directly engage with experts and industry leaders who have not been exposed to your portfolio; providing the best opportunity to increase awareness to those who need you most.
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 and interact.
Exhibiting lightning talks and product demonstrations by sponsors, this is your key area for important updates in the speciality. Submit your abstract today for a chance to present to your peers at this important new attraction!
Three brand new parallel sessions will cover clinical, basic science and industry innovation. By attending you’ll be exposed to novel technologies, innovative clinical practices and new opportunities for accessing resources and funding. Attendees of these sessions will gain a greater awareness of collaboration and funding opportunities that have yet to be discussed elsewhere.
For 2019, the programme has been carefully put together to ensure relevant content for nurses across the entire three days.
This includes adjusting the programme to ensure that the two dedicated nurse sessions avoid clashes with the equally valuable 'How do i?' sessions throughout the event. Furthermore the exciting nurses social evening on Monday provides you even more opportunities to meet and network with fellow nurses from across the UK.
