It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the SCANDINAVIAN PHYSIOLOGICAL SOCIETY 2019 meeting in Reykjavik! The programme and practical info can be found at the meeting website. We will have world-class plenary speakers, very interesting symposia and three ambitious satellite meetings. The satellite meetings will be held on August 8th, and the main meeting will be on August 9-11th. We will meet in Harpa Conference Centre, downtown Reykjavik. Most congress hotels, as well as shops and restaurants, are within walking distance. Excursions to explore Icelandic nature can easily be arranged. We look forward to seeing you! For more information, see the meeting website or contact the organisers by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) or through the facebook page or Twitter account

The first meeting of a series of biennial joint meetings organised by the Scandinavian Physiological Society, the Physiological Society, the Deutsche Physiologische Gesellschaft and the Federation of European Physiological Societies will take place 14 – 16 September 2018 in London. We warmly encourage all SPS members to participate – this meeting will replace the SPS annual meeting 2018 and is definitely a “don´t miss” event for every physiologist! https://www.europhysiology2018.org/
The general assembly of the SPS will be organised in London.
The Special Interest Group on Cardiac Physiology of the Scandinavian Physiological Society is arranging an exciting satellite meeting on the day before the Europhysiology meeting in London in 2018. To celebrate the plans to have a series of biennial joint meetings of The Physiological Society, the Scandinavian Physio-logical Society, the Deutsche Physiologische Gesellschaft and the Federation of European Physiological Societies, we invite all scientists with an interest in cardiac physiology to participate.
The participation is free. SPS members can apply to SPS for a travel grant. The meeting is in principle open to all muscle biologists, but in case it is fully booked, we will give priority to one person from each group (e.g. the PI).
We are happy to announce that a new special interest group named “SIG for skeletal muscle Physiology” has been established. Currently the group is chaired by professor Kristian Gundersen, University of Oslo. The board of the SIG consists of Kristian Gundersen, Johanna Lanner and Julian Ochala.
The upstart meeting of the new SIG is planned to be organised as a satellite meeting to the Europhysiology 2018 meeting in London.
It is with greatest pleasure to announce that Acta Physiologica is inching up on an impact factor of 5. We are currently at 4.9.
At present, Acta Physiologica is the leading journal publishing mainly original articles in the entire field of physiology. Six of the altogether 84 journals covering physiology are ahead of us. These focus on reviews, or are focused on specific areas (e.g. Physiological reviews or Pineal Research).
We are overwhelmed of your efforts, submissions and continuous support, which have made such a great difference!
