Call for symposia

Symposia at Physiology 2019 are to consist of one organiser (who will also act as the Chair) and therefore not be included as a speaker, two senior leaders in the field (each allocated 30 minutes) and two early-career individuals (each allocated 15 minutes). Early-career should be PhD, Postdoc or first faculty position level (non-professorial).

Each symposium will have the following format: 

  • Senior (30 min)
  • Early-career (15 min)
  • Early-career (15 min)
  • Senior (30 min)

There will be 18 symposia in total across the three days.  

Each symposium will be funded to a maximum of £2,500 GBP to cover travel, accommodation and subsistence of the organiser/chair AND speakers.  Speakers will NOT be required to pay a registration fee.  It is the expectation of the Scientific Programme Committee that organisers and speakers find funding from additional sources. This support will be acknowledged online and in the printed programme. A co-organiser may be included, but will not be funded.  

All speakers are required to submit an abstract.

When submitting your proposal, please bear in mind the importance of ensuring gender, geographic and career-stage balance.

The Societies are committed to increasing equality and diversity in the physiological sciences, and we would like to ask you to be mindful of this commitment when making your suggestions for scientific content.
