Welcome Message

The 18th Congress of the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA) is scheduled for August 8-10, 2014 in Beijing, China. On behalf of the organising committee and the Chinese Society for Anatomical Sciences (CSAS), I would welcome you to attend this Congress. The congress will be hosted by the CSAS and will take place at the Beijing International Conference Centre, Beijing Continental Grand Hotel, Beijing, China. The conference centre and hotel are located in the Beijing Olympic Park. A wide range of accommodations are available around the Park, from budget accommodation up to 7 stars hotels to suit all tastes and requirements.

The theme of the Congress will be Anatomy, from gross to molecular and digital. This IFAA Congress, as always, aims to bring together anatomists and other scientists from around the globe to present and debate the latest and best research on anatomy, histology, morphology, cell biology, developmental biology, anthropology and digitized morphology during the coming 4 years. It will provide an opportunity for networking for all delegates.

Beijing, as the Capital of China with an over 5,000 years civilization history, has countless historic and scenic spots, such as the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven, etc. You may have had a glimpse of her breathtaking beauty during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. The 2014 IFAA Congress will provide you an unforgettable opportunity to experience it by yourself. We will organize a wide range of a half day or one day tours for your family during the conference. We will also arrange pre-/post-conference tours for you and your family to visit various tourist attractions around China.

We look forward to the pleasure of greeting you at what promises to be an exciting and fruitful meeting.

See you in Beijing! See you in 2014!
