The BEM 2019 program starts with an icebreaker in the evening of April 3rd and concludes with a banquet and a live musical performance by Billy and the Bruisers, a 10-piece, 100% Newfoundland band in the evening of the 6th (get ready to dance!). It includes a plenary talk by an imminent scientist in the field to kick off the meeting presentations on the 4th; three concurrent sessions of oral presentations on the 4th, 5th, and 6th; an evening poster session on the 4th; and a BEMs Board meeting followed by an AGM in the afternoon of the 5th.
We know many of you will travel a long distance to join us and wanting to get as much out of your stay. In addition to enjoying a high-quality, 3-day scientific program, various activity packages will be offered in the afternoon and evening of the 5th, including tours of MUN’s Ocean Sciences Centre and Marine Institute, hikes in select portions of the famous East Coast Trail, visits of museums and interpretation centres, cold water diving, boat tours, and even the opportunity to “become an honorary Newfoundlander” on famous George Street! Stay tuned - these packages are being worked out and will be advertised over the next few weeks.
