Conference Committee

The American Physiological Society (APS) holds several specialty meetings and conferences each year in addition to being part of the annual Experimental Biology meeting. These specialty meetings and conferences typically focus on one particular branch of physiology-related science allowing attendees to gain more access to other like-minded scientists, subject matter, and can lead to more intimate discussions and foster growth. Specialty meetings can also focus on interdisciplinary topics involving physiology-related topics or meeting with more than one related branch of physiology.

Fundraising is not necessary to organize a conference.

Past meetings and conferences have covered subjects including: cardiovascular physiology, comparative and evolutionary physiology, endothelial physiology, exercise physiology, physiological genomics, renal physiology, and many more. Your meeting or conference idea can become part of our growing list of successful meetings and events, hosted and planned by APS. To learn more click on the links below:
