On behalf of the Australian Physiological Society (AuPS), we extend an invitation to you to attend the 2014 conference hosted at The University of Queensland , Brisbane, Australia from Sunday 30th November to Wednesday 3rd December.

We are delighted with the broad program that has been assembled: twelve symposia spanning a range of physiological sciences; more than 10 international speakers; a physiological education symposium; oral free communication sessions; and poster free communication sessions. The meeting format will facilitate poster discussion and judging, and awards for student and post-doctoral presentations. Please consider communicating your latest research within these free communication formats.

We are honoured to have the following keynote lecturers:

The welcome reception on the Sunday night features Prof. Vandenberg's plenary lecture, followed by drinks and food. There is a student/ ECR social on Monday night, with the annual conference dinner on the Tuesday night at the stately Customs House, Riverside.

The student and early career researcher mixer on Monday evening at the Nextdoor Kitchen and Bar in Southbank promises to be a terrific social event.

Travel and accommodation information is now available for you to plan your attendance at this stand-alone AuPS meeting that should not be missed.

If you are not yet a member of our Society and would like to present your research, then you can register as a non-member and have a member sponsor your abstract. It will be to your financial advantage to join the society first. Consult the information on the Society’s membership pages.
