You are cordially invited to participate in the XIV International Symposium on Cholinergic Mechanisms which will be held in Hangzhou, China. The symposium will begin on Sunday, May 5 2013, and will conclude in the afternoon on Thursday, May 9. The specific goal for this symposium is to create a forum in which diverse areas of cholinergic mechanisms in a broad spectrum of study models can be openly and critically discussed.
Hangzhou is the capital of Zhejiang province and its political, economic and cultural center. With enchanting natural beauty and abundant cultural heritages, Hangzhou is known as ‘Heaven on Earth’ and one of China’s most important tourist venues. The City, the southern terminus of the Grand Canal, is located on the lower reaches of the Qiantang River in southeast China, a superior position in the Yangtze Delta and only 180 kilometers from Shanghai. The West Lake is the most renowned feature of Hangzhou, noted for the scenic beauty that blends naturally with many famous historical and cultural sites. It is surrounded by emerald hills covered with lush forests, grandiose rocks, gullies, and intriguing streams. Hangzhou has a subtropical monsoon type climate with four quite distinct seasons. However, it is neither too hot in summer nor too cold in winter making it a year round destination.
We hope you will enjoy your stay in Hangzhou in the coming symposium!
