The 2021 scientific meeting will be hosted by Griffith University on the Gold Coast. The website will be updated regularly with information about travel, events and the scientific programme.
This is a particularly special meeting for AuPS as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the conference. During the conference we will reflect on the significant history of the society and the contributions of so many to this professional association.
Join us on the Gold Coast
As in previous years, the conference at Griffith University will run over 3.5 days, starting with a Symposium and Welcome Reception on Sunday night. Invited lectures, Symposia, Free Communication and Poster sessions will run from Monday morning to Wednesday afternoon and there will be opportunities for catching up with friends and networking during lunch and social events such as the Conference dinner where we will celebrate 60 years of AuPS at the magnificent Skypoint.
Attend a conference hubFor those who are unable to travel to the Gold Coast, you can attend one of six hubs (located in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart and Canberra) which will live stream sessions from the conference starting on Monday morning through the end of the conference on Wednesday. In true conference style this will provide opportunities to socialise with other members over lunch and during poster sessions all within the hub.
The invited lecture for 2021 will be delivered by Prof Matthew Watt from University of Melbourne. This is a well-deserved honour given Prof Watt's considerable scientific contributions to physiology and his long-term service and leadership to AuPS. We also have the pleasure of former President AuPS, Prof David Adams delivering the AuPS Plenary lecture.
The conference will feature ten symposia spanning a range of physiological sciences, presented by national and international speakers. A list of symposia may be found here.
Abstract submissions for free communication sessions and poster presentations are now open. Abstracts will be considered for Free Communication sessions and Poster presentations. We ask that speakers granted an oral presentation attend the conference on the Gold Coast. If you are unable to attend, please select 'poster presentation' when submitting your abstract.
