About the meeting dates
The timing of this year's BEM has been chosen to minimize participation costs and to stay within the traditional time window for BEMs. Based on past meetings (BEM2000 and BEM2010), we expect a large number of registrants, so the conference agenda will be very full in order to accommodate all the speakers and poster presenters. April is usually a lovely, spring month in Wilmington, with warm days and cool evenings. If you wish to take full advantage of local tourism, we recommend extending your stay through the weekend.
