Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) Details on Hosting a TERMIS Chapter or World Congress Meeting

Through its annual regional meetings (Asia-Pacific, Europe and Americas) and the World Congress, which is held every three years, TERMIS brings together the international community of persons engaged or interested in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The annual TERMIS meetings encourage the promotion of education and research within the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and serves as an international forum to promote the informed discussion of challenges and therapeutic benefits of the application of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine technologies.

If you are interested in hosting a TERMIS annual chapter or World Congress meeting, please submit your request to Sarah Wilburn at swilburn@termis.org. You will be provided with a meeting host form that asks detailed questions about the meeting organizers, location/venue, program, and meeting financials. Announcements will be posted on the homepage of the TERMIS website when proposals are being solicited for a chapter meeting or World Congress. When proposals are submitted, they are reviewed by the respective chapter council and an official vote is conducted.

**Note that all financial responsibility for the meeting will be underwritten by the meeting host. TERMIS will assist with the meeting by creating the meeting website; creating an ad to promote the meeting that will be included in the journal, Tissue Engineering; and will provide meeting updates to the TERMIS membership.

**Please note that if your application to host a TERMIS Chapter or World Congress meeting is chosen, the meeting host must provide to the respective Council Chair updates on the financials, any marketing materials prior to printing, and information on the scientific program.
