The ISBER Education and Training Committee is pleased to announce that it will receive topic-driven workshop proposals for presentation at the ISBER 2019 Regional Meeting and Exhibits. The Regional Meeting will be held in Minneapolis, MN, USA on November 3-5, 2019.
Education and Training Committee (E&T) topic-driven workshops are educational in nature, informing meeting attendees about specific types of repository-based activities and concerns with an international perspective. Topic-driven workshops are different from corporate workshops which afford sponsors an opportunity to feature their own products and services.
Topic-driven workshops should support ISBER’s Vision and Mission in addition to aligning with the 2019 regional meeting theme “Times They Are A Changin’: Biobanks For the Future”.
Review of the proposals shall include the following considerations:
• Potential educational value to meeting attendees
• Consistency with overall programmatic theme of the ISBER Regional Meeting
• Applicability of workshop content as compared with ISBER’s mission/goals and visions
• Multinational involvement through the inclusion of international elements or presenters
