Welcome to the Benthic ecology meeting society website! On our website, you can find out more about BEMS and the BEMS Board.
The 47th Benthic Ecology Meeting (BEM 2018) will be Held in Corpus Christi, Texas March 27-30 2018
We survived Hurricane Harvey and look forward to the meeting. Activities will start and end 1 day earlier than normal to allow participants to travel home on Saturday for the Easter holiday on Sunday. The venue is the Omni Hotel, and we have secured a special meeting rate for the entire week, so stay the weekend. Tuesday will consist of pre-meeting workshops and field trips, with the opening social Tuesday evening, breakout presentations Wednesday to Friday, and the banquet Friday night. We will open abstract submissions in October.
An important feature of the BEM agenda has been special sessions and workshops. We invite you to organize and suggest special session topics or workshop topics for 2018. Please send suggestions to BenthicEcologyMeeting@gmail.com by September 30.
