Bay Area Worm Meeting 2020

Event Registration

Register for free


The Bay Area Worm Meeting (BAWM), hosted every year, is the primary venue for the C. elegans scientific community in the San Francisco bay area to gather, share ideas, and present new scientific findings in diverse aspects of C. elegans biology. The one-day BAWM meeting rotates among local campuses and typically includes around 200 C. elegans scientists. The BAWM is historically trainee-organized, with high attendance of faculty, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, and almost exclusively for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to present their work. The BAWM has not been hosted at the Buck since 2009, so we are excited to bring it back this summer!

Abstract deadline: May 23
Registration deadline: June 13
