We are pleased to announce that the 39th Congress of the International Union of Physiological Sciences, IUPS-2022, will now be held in Beijing, China, at the China National Convention Center from May 7-11, 2022, hosted by The Chinese Association for Physiological Sciences (CAPS)
We all hope that by then vaccine(s) against COVID-19 will be of high efficacy to prevent the disease and that travelling conditions will largely revert to the norm. We anticipate that after such a long time of severe restrictions there will be a substantial need to keep up with scientific exchange at true international meetings. We therefore expect that the IUPS Congress in Beijing will be an ideal starting point to resume in-person scientific exchange and to discuss most recent results with fellow colleagues. Please be assured that we will make every effort to protect the health of our speakers should the pandemic continue. If, even in 2022, it were still necessary to reduce travelling and personal contacts, we are prepared to organize a hybrid meeting which includes lectures via internet connection.
With the congress theme “Marvels of Life – Integration and Translation”, IUPS-2022 will again 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 appended below) has had its first meeting 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 Symposia. The guidelines for proposals submissions are presented below. All proposals are to be submitted through the form below in the period from December 2020 to May 15, 2021. All submissions will be finally considered by the ISPC in August 2021. Announcement of the selected Symposia will be made in September 2021.
With your active participation, we hope to create a programme that will attract physiologists from all over the world to Beijing.
