Welcome to HBES Virtually Everywhere!
The host and program committees of #HBES2021 are excited to engage our members in an action-packed, fully customized, online conference experience. Here, you will find all of the information you need to join us Virtually Everywhere this summer!
HBES 2021 will take place June 24 – July 2. To avoid computer burnout, the conference days will be shorter than usual (~4 hours), but spread out over more days than our typical in-person meetings. Meeting times will vary by day to help accommodate various time zones.

HBES Virtually Everywhere will be hosted on the ohyay platform and is a fully-customized online conference where you can 1) grab a coffee with colleagues before heading to a talk, 2) sing karaoke with your friends, or 3) discuss future collaborations at the hotel bar!
For the best virtual experience, we recommend all attendees use Chrome on a plugged-in computer, and strongly encourage the use of headphones so that everyone has a better auditory experience.
We look forward to seeing you all!
