Welcome Message
Dear Colleagues,

The Presidents are very pleased to welcome you to The 94th Annual Meeting of the Physiological Society of Japan: Illuminating the mechanisms of life from the harmony of molecules to the dynamics of organisims, which will be held in Hamamatsu, Japan, from March 28 to 30, 2017.

The scientific program in English will include 3 Plenary Lecturers, 6 Invited and Honorary Lectures, and many symposia addressing hot topics in physiological sciences and is designed to give attendees a broad overview of recent progress in physiology and neuroscience. Poster presentations will create opportunities for participants to present and share experiences, explore new directions and debate topics with experts in the field. Contributions from young researchers from abroad will be encouraged by honoring the outstanding presenters with the Oversea Young Physiologist Awards. Thus this meeting offers an invaluable opportunity for exchanges among researchers and will facilitate collaborations, so that it contributes to promote advancement of these field worldwide.

The meeting is held at Act City Congress Center which locates in a heart of Hamamatsu downtown and are conveniently connected to the main train station via a skywalk or an underpass. Access to the numerous sightseeing spots are very convenient and you may enjoy full blossoms of cherry during or after the meeting.

Hamamatsu thrived along the old Tokaido, the main road which for centuries has connected Tokyo and Kyoto.
Hamamatsu Castle was built by Ieyasu Tokugawa who started the Edo government 30 years later in the year 1600, which began the 300-year Edo period ruled by the Tokugawa Family. Today's city’s development has been built upon three major industries; motorcycles (Honda, Suzuki, and Yamaha), musical instruments (Yamaha, Kawai, and Roland), and textiles (Toyota began its business by developing automatic loom). In recent years, Hamamatsu has also seen strong growth in high-tech industries like optics (Hamamatsu Photonics) and electronics, and these local industries are now competing in the global market.

So, enjoy three days of excellent science and culture in this exciting city.
