Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of the health of our speakers and attendees, IUPS and the Chinese Association for Physiological Sciences after thorough considerations have decided to postpone the 2021 IUPS Congress to May 7-11, 2022. We are convinced that this is in the best interest of the physiologists, not only with regard to their health but also for fellow colleagues from all over the world in having in-person meeting, which we consider an essential part of the IUPS Congress. We expect that it will take until at least the last quarter of next year both for vaccine against COVID-19 to be commercially available for everybody and for confidence in international travel to be restored. Until then, we continue to strive organizing a meeting of scientific excellence under safe and resilient conditions.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2022 in Beijing!
