BMSS43 Scientific Programme

The Society is architecting an extensive and invigorating Scientific Programme for 2023. BMSS43 will feature 3 Plenary Lectures, 12 Keynote Lectures, 36 Contributed Talks, 90 Flash Oral Presentations, and traditionally presented poster sessions (in A0 portrait format).

A digital copy of the BMSS43 Conference Programme is appended to the bottom of this page as a password-protected PDF file. All registered delegates will receive the password in their ‘Information for Delegates Document’ that the BMSS Administrator will send out to all registered BMSS43 delegates on the 1st of September 2023 (using the email address that delegates provided in their registration forms). If you have not received your password by the 5th of September 2023, please contact the BMSS Administrator for assistance (after checking the spam/trash folder). Please consider the environment before printing a copy. A hard copy of the Conference programme will be made available to delegates at the meeting. A copy of the Full Conference E-Abstract book is available here.
