1–6 July 2018 WCP 2018-18th World Congress of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology
On behalf of the Japanese Pharmacological Society (JPS) and the Japanese Society of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (JSCPT), I cordially invite you to the 18th World Congress of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology (WCP2018) to be held from July 1 to 6, 2018, in Kyoto, Japan. The main theme of WCP2018 is “Pharmacology for the Future Science, Drug Development and Therapeutics.”
We are now witnessing huge waves of revolutionary changes in biomedical sciences such as individual genome sequencing, stem cell biology including iPS cells, structural biology, nanotechnology and systems biology. It is the tradition of pharmacology to take all the elements in other disciplines of science to carry out our science as in the old saying, “a pharmacologist is a jack of all trades.” We intend to organize, in collaboration with our neighboring national societies, a variety of scientific programs that allow exposure of participating pharmacologists to these new waves of science.
We believe such scientific interactions will facilitate interdisciplinary studies among life sciences and medicine that will serve human health. Emphasis will also be given to the scientific programs related to drug development and therapeutics, where researchers from academia interact with those from industry so that we together fulfill our time’s needs for innovation.
Besides science, WCP2018 will provide you a rare chance to experience old Japanese culture. Kyoto was the capital of Japan for over 1,000 years and still remains the heart of culture in Japan. Shrines, temples and historical sites in Kyoto have remained the same for centuries. Visit one of these spots and meditate there; you will feel the breath of many hundred-years of culture.
Getting off the beaten path and exploring some of the hidden areas of Kyoto will surely yield further rewards to you. July in Kyoto is the summer festive season. The Gion Festival goes on for the entire month of July and is one of the most famous festivals in Japan. It dates back to the year 869, when the people were suffering from plague and pestilence and started this festival to get rid of these maladies. It is therefore a good time to have the Pharmacology Congress and we sincerely look forward to seeing you at WCP2018 in Kyoto.
12–15 September 2018 HAL 2018
Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg
On behalf of the organising committee of the “International conference on healthiness and fitness across the lifespan” (HAL 2018) at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, and on behalf of the European Group for Research into Elderly and Physical Activity (EGREPA) we would like to invite you to an important scientific event in Magdeburg.
Technical advances over the last few years have inspired researchers to test and validate earlier theories of motor and mental development, learning and age-related functional decline.
Physical activity has been suggested to be one of the most important factors for increasing motor and mental abilities in childhood and for promoting fitness and healthiness across the life span. Also lifestyle factors, healthy eating and physical activity, may counteract the progression of age-related cognitive, physical and neurophysiological deficits. The conference offers an opportunity for scientists from different fields such as sport and health science, neuroscience, medicine, physiology, nutrition, gerontology, cognitive science but also for teachers, clinicians, and practitioners to present new findings and to engage in discussions relevant to the topic of “healthiness and fitness across the life span”. It is an unprecedented challenge to explore the processes of motor and mental development and to cooperate across disciplines in order to recommend successful strategies.
The conference includes keynotes, working groups with introductory presentation, invited symposia, poster sessions, practical exercises, and demonstrations.
We hope you will enjoy the conference and you will find stimulating input for your own future research and work.

Dublin (from the Irish Gaelic An Dubh Linn meaning 'the black pool') was established as a Viking settlement on the River Liffey over 1,000 years ago. The Anglo-Norman and subsequent English invasions followed. During the Georgian period, when it was the second largest city in the British Empire, Dublin became an important European cultural centre. This rich and varied history has left an indelible mark on this colourful and atmospheric city. Today, Dublin is a bustling metropolis with a population of over 1.7 million. Home to over 100 different nationalities, it has a genuinely cosmopolitan feel and yet retains its own distinct culture, which is expressed in a love of literature, drama and traditional music.
We are delighted to welcome you to Dublin for the 16th International Congress and hope you will take the opportunity to be part of this exceptional Scientific Program. We promise an unparalleled learning opportunity.
11–12 October 2012 7th Brain Research Conference: Optogenetics and Pharmacogenetics in Neuronal Function and Dysfunction
New Orleans, USA
The ability to express light-sensitive membrane channels (optogenetics) and synthetic receptors (pharmacogenetics) in neurons is revolutionizing neuroscience. With these new approaches, investigators can control neuronal activity or signaling with unprecedented specificity and precision. These methods are within the reach of most investigators, and are replacing less selective techniques of electrical stimulation, lesions or pharmacologic manipulations. These approaches are not only a boon to basic researchers, but also have substantial potential for development of novel clinical treatments for a range of nervous system disorders. The 2-day meeting will feature the originators (Deisseroth, Roth and Conklin) as well as early adopters of these methods, validating their utility in understanding neural function and potential for treating neural dysfunction.
Stanford, CA, USA
Shikake is a Japanese word that represents physical and/or psychological trigger for implicit or explicit behavior change to solve problems. The aim of this workshop is to gain a holistic understanding of Shikake, i.e.:
- Shikake principles
- Behavior change triggers
- Sustained behavior change
- Case studies
- Approaches to design simple and complex Shikake
The merits of Shikakeological approach are summarized as four points; low expertise, low cost, wide range of target users, and long term continuous behavior changes. Developing a Shikake can be easier and less expensive than developing complicated engineering mechanism. These advantages allow people to use the Shikake approach to address immediate problems without requiring specific expertise. Another Shikake objective is to induce spontaneous behavior. When people feel controlled or forced by someone or something to do something, they never do that again. On the other hand, if people desire and enjoy changing their behavior, they would do it repeatedly. Shikake aims to change behavior through a continuous engagement and transformation process. The goal of Shikakeology is to codify the cause and effect of Shikake cases from physical and/or psychological points of view, and to establish a Shikake design methodology. To achieve this goal, this workshop invites Shikake studies to share the knowledge, methods, experiments and findings that demonstrate triggers that motivate people and lead to behavior changes.
