We are now accepting abstracts and symposium proposals: find submission information here


In response to the feedback we received from last year’s survey, we are pleased to announce that BUCLD 49 will take place in person, with options for remote participation. The current plan (subject to change) is as follows:
  • All invited presentations (keynote, plenary, workshop and symposium) will be presented in person and live-streamed for remote participants. Questions will be taken from both the live and remote audience.
  • The majority of presentations and posters will be in-person. We hope to record the presentations and upload them for later viewing. Authors accepted for a poster presentation will be required to pre-record and submit a five minute video of their presentation. 
  • A limited number of submissions will be accepted for remote presentation. Presentations accepted in this format will be pre-recorded; posters will be part of a virtual poster session.
