Abstracts Submission

The World Federation of Societies on Chronobiology (WFSC) is a global association aimed at striving to promote education, knowledge and understanding in the field of Chronobiology; so far the WFSC has organized two meetings in Sapporo (2003) and Tokyo (2007).

The WFSC announces the THIRD WORLD MEETING OF CHRONOBIOLOGY to be held from May 5 to 9, 2011 in the city of Puebla de Zaragoza, México. The meeting will be aimed to discuss how to improve Biodiversity Preservation, Life Quality and Health by Chronobiology

The Latin American Group of Chronobiology (LAGC) was initiated in 1991 on the initiative of an enthusiast group of chronobiologists mainly from the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, which invited colleagues from Argentina and Mexico to hold a Latin American Symposium on Chronobiology (LASC). Since then the LASC has been held every other year and has grown to include colleagues from Chile, Cuba and Uruguay, Canada, Germany, USA and UK. This time the XI LASC will be held just previously to the 3rd WCC in the nearby city of Puebla.

Mexican Society for Biological rhytms

For chronobiologists in Mexico, the challenge of hosting the 3WCC has been critical to fostering the formalization of the Mexican Society for Biological Rhythms (SMRB), which held its first meeting on August 4 to 6, 2010 in the city town of Juriquilla. This could be considered the first goal achieved by the WFSC in relation to its 3rd WCC

The III WCC will be aimed at discussing how we transfer clock knowledge from the lab to our house. The subject areas will include Genetic and Molecular Mechanisms of Circadian Oscillators; Neural Network interactions in SCN clock function; Pineal/Melatonin involvement in Circadian Rhythms and Photoperiodism; Photic and Non-Photic Entrainment; Sleep/Wake cycle; Ultradian/Infradian Rhythms; Chronotherapy and Chronopharmacology; Modeling and Analysis. Beyond these academic areas, the challenge is to discuss the application from our current knowledge of Chronobiology to improve ecology, sustainability, life quality and human health.

I really hope you will decide to attend the 3rd WCC and take the opportunity to enjoy both the Science and Entertainment in Puebla.
