Dear Colleagues,  

​It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the SCANDINAVIAN PHYSIOLOGICAL SOCIETY 2021 meeting in Stockholm!

REGISTRATION is NOW OPEN! After a year of many challenges and many digital interactions we are looking forward to 2021 and to meeting you in Stockholm! The executive committee of Scandinavian Physiological Society has decided that SPS2021 will go ahead regardless of the Covid-19 situation. We all hope that by then we’ll be able to meet in large groups, but if we’re not, we are prepared to have an “in person/digital meeting”. Detailed information of the conference format will be posted here later in spring 2021.  

In addition to five keynote lectures from renowned experts, we will have 14 symposia consisting of invited speakers as well as talks selected from submitted abstracts. Details of the programme and invited speakers are found on the website and will be continuously updated. Special Interest groups (SIG’s) will have meetings on Thursday 2 September, followed by the SPS annual meeting Friday 3 September – Sunday 5 September. We are proud to present that four SIG’s have confirmed participation; cardiac, skeletal muscle, renal and vascular!

The Young investigator awards for oral and poster presentations will be announced and awarded at the dinner on Saturday 4 September. We are also planning daily podcasts to highlight key events and presentations. 

The conference venue is the Clarion Sign Hotel, located at the centre of the beautiful city of Stockholm and is easily accessed from the central train station and airport bus stops by foot.
