Meeting Announcements

Third Conference of the Physiological Society of Nepal

Kathmandu, Nepal
February 11-12, 2018

PSN Conference - 2018 will bring researchers in the field of physiology and applied sciences (especially basic medical sciences) in Nepal together in exhibiting their scientific works. The conference will serve as an interacting platform among researchers from different countries and disciplines of basic medical sciences. There will be discussions on identifying new scopes of research in the country, individually or jointly.

THEME: Exploring Research Fields in Nepal

Physiologists, as well as most scientists of the basic medical subjects, in Nepal are traditionally viewed as ‘teachers’ to various undergraduate medical and health science courses. Research activities are still lacking due to limitations of time, resources, and prioritization. As a result, the small numbers of research activities that are taking place are often inadequate in terms of size, methodology, and generation of knowledge. The theme of the conference draws attention to the relative lack of research activities in Nepal and calls to the scientific community to fulfil this void. The theme also encourages scientists to identify suitable fields and initiate researches in Nepal that would contribute to the body of scientific knowledge.

9th FAOPS Congress

Kobe, Japan
March 28-31, 2019

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to invite you to participate in the 9th Federation of the Asian and Oceanian Physiological Society Congress (FAOPS2019) from March 28th to March 31th, 2019, in Kobe, Japan. FAOPS2019 will held in conjunction with the 96th Annual Meeting of The Physiological Society of Japan. The theme for the congress is "Philosophy of Life: Function and Mechanisms." We anticipate 2,000 registrations from Asian and Oceanian countries, who share an interest in all aspects of Physiological Sciences, including advanced research and translational physiology. The congress will also be associated with Teaching Workshops and Training Courses for young researchers. There will be numerous opportunities to gain new knowledge, share technical expertise and the latest research discoveries, and to enjoy scientific and educational interactions.

In addition to attending the congress, we invite you to experience Japan. The congress will be held during the beautiful cherry blossom season, and the location is convenient for visiting some of Japan's most exciting and historical places, such as Osaka, Tokyo and Kyoto.

Please note the dates in your diary, and we are looking forward to seeing you and your colleagues in Kobe, Japan for FAOPS2019!
