During the SIF Congress, the competition “Images in Physiology: beyond Science” will be held. All interested participants are more than welcome to prepare a maximum of three photos (printed in a 30x40 format) to be exhibited during the Congress at Villa Orlandi.
The prize for the best photo, selected by members of the Executive Board, will be awarded during the social dinner.

Dear Colleagues,

On the behalf of the Organising Committee, I am honored to invite you to participate in the 65th Congress of the Italian Physiological Society (SIF), that will be held in Anacapri on 28-30 September 2014.

This year, the annual meeting of our Society will be organised in Capri, the world-renowned island in the southern part of the Gulf of Naples. Anacapri is located on the northern side of the island and is a very special resort to host and promote Science.

Anacapri was elected as special home by Axel Munthe, scientist, physician and well-known writer, who built Villa San Michele, still standing as a world-wide attraction for its great beauty and magnificent panoramic views.

Congress attendants will be hosted at the San Michele Hotel, near Villa San Michele, and in other neighbouring hotels (please note that the deadline for hotel reservations at the reduced rate will be 30 June 2014). The Congress Registration Desk will be located in Villa Orlandi, a Federico II University facility, while the scientific events will be held at Anacapri Congress Center, with three halls for all activities. The programme of the Congress will include three keynote lectures, symposia, oral communication sessions, and poster presentations.

I would like to highlight the Symposium jointly organised with the Scandinavian Physiological Society, the participation of guests from the Croatian Physiological Society, as well as other symposia with the contribution of several Italian Scientific Societies. The official language of the Congress is English.

The social dinner will be served on the roof terrace of San Michele Hotel, with a view to the magnificent skyline of Capri and Gulf of Naples.

Special social programmes for excursions around Capri will be available to accompanying guests.

I welcome you most warmly and I look forward to seeing you in Anacapri.

Antonio Colantuoni,
President of the Organising Committee
