BIOMOD 2015 Wait list

April 16, 2015

Dear BIOMOD community: we have received an overwhelming response this year, and just reached the physical space limit in the auditorium over 2 weeks before our registration deadline.

We understand that many teams have been planning to register between now and the April 30th deadline. Unfortunately we cannot promise a spot at this time, but now must direct all unregistered teams to the wait list form. We will work to confirm payments and team sizes of those that already requested to register, and then try to open up additional spots. If we can open up additional spots, we will require payment only by credit card.

Please keep in mind that somtimes the growth of a community temporarily outpaces the logistical resources of early organizers. For example, this year the Cryo-EM Gordon Research Conference faced the largest oversubscription in its history, with nearly 300 attempting to register for 178 spots over 3 months before its deadline.

Thanks for your understanding and patience while we try to sort through possible options. If you have any concerns, questions, suggestions, or offers to help out, please email me at

BIOMOD 2015 Registration is OPEN

February 01, 2015

Hello BIOMODders!

Ready to sign up? Visit our registration form to register between now and April 30th, 2015. Please make sure you have read our how to join and requirements pages.

This year we are continuing our policy of collecting a TEAM registration fee ($250 USD)

In addition, when it comes time to register for the Jamboree, we will be collecting an INDIVIDUAL registration fee ($ amount TBA). We are in the process of negotiating the best possible rates for all of the expenses to run BIOMOD (venue, A/V, catering, etc), and attempting to raise sponsorship funds. The per-person individual fee will be set as low as possible to break even on the event - rest assured that we are not making any money, just covering expenses. Please plan for roughly $200 per person, plus lodging expenses.
