9th Federation of the Asian and Oceanian Physiological Societies Congress (FAOPS2019)

 The 9th Federation of the Asian and Oceanian Physiological Societies Congress (FAOPS2019) is held from March 28th to 31st, 2019 in Kobe, Japan. FAOPS2019 will be held in conjunction with the 96th Annual Meeting of The Physiological Society of Japan (PSJ). 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.

 FAOPS2019 is now accepting abstracts (until October 2nd, 2018) and early registration (until October 31st, 2018). JNSS members who do not have membership of PSJ can also submit abstracts to present as PSJ members do. See the following link for more details:
