We are pleased to announce that the 39th Congress of the International Union of Physiological Sciences, IUPS-2021, will be held in Beijing, China, at the China National Convention Center from August 20 to 24, 2021, hosted by The Chinese Association for Physiological Sciences (CAPS).
With the congress theme “Marvels of Life – Integration and Translation”, IUPS-2021 will provide a perfect opportunity for physiologists from around the world to gather and share discoveries of physiological principles and how these are integrated in life and translated into techniques and tools that improve health outcomes. For your update, the International Scientific Program Committee (ISPC, see list of members below) has had its first meeting in October 2019 to formulate the outline of the program and to select Plenary and Keynote speakers. Announcement of the selected speakers will be made soon.
We invite you and your colleagues to submit proposals for Satellite Symposia. The guidelines for proposals submissions are presented below. All proposals are to be submitted to the IUPS Manager (Mr. Steven Webster firstname.lastname@example.org) before February 20, 2021. All submissions will be considered by the ISPC.
With your active participation, we hope to create a programme that will attract physiologists from all over the world to Beijing.
