Invitation to attend

On behalf of Joint Program Committee and society councils we welcome you to the joint ASCEPT-AuPS-HBPRCA scientific meeting in Perth from 4th to 9th December, 2011. We believe this meeting will be an excellent opportunity to showcase the research of members of the three societies. Importantly, this meeting offers the opportunity to network with colleagues and other leading scientists from ASCEPT, AuPS and HBPRCA societies at both social and scientific activities.

The program of plenary lectures, symposia and workshops, oral presentations and posters will be academically and scientifically stimulating and lead to new collaborations and research opportunities. Annual awards and prizes will also be presented at this meeting. With researchers from ASCEPT, AuPS and HBPRCA, this meeting provides an excellent opportunity to network across these societies.

We extend a warm welcome to our international guests, Professor Roland Jones from the British Pharmacological Society, Professor Haruaki Nakaya from the Japanese Pharmacological Society, Professor Annamaria de Luca and Professor Mark Hargreaves who are the AuPS plenary and AuPS invited lecturer respectively, and Professor Peter Rothwell who is the HBPRCA's RD Wright invited lecturer.

We offer a very special welcome to all our exhibitors and sponsors. The Joint Program Committee and society councils welcome your feedback on every aspect of the meeting.

Perth, with its clear skies, open spaces and amazing natural attractions is an ideal conference location. Set on the banks of the spectacular Swan River, Perth is a rapidly growing urban centre that offers cultural diversity and sophistication combined with a relaxed lifestyle and friendly vibe. Home to world-class wineries and renowned as a surfing destination, Margaret River and the South West area of the state offer fine boutique wineries, gourmet delights, majestic old growth forests, spectacular caves and pristine coastline. With excellent infrastructure and stunning scenery, the region is perfect for satellite workshops as well as pre and post conference touring.

With kind regards

Carl Kirkpatrick, Chairperson, Joint Program Committee
Professor David Allen, AuPS President
Professor David Le Couteur, ASCEPT President
Professor Jaye Chin-Dusting, HBPRCA President
