We welcome you to the 2nd Asian Chronobiology Forum and 2017 conference of Chinese Society of Biological Rhythms from 25th-28th June 2017 in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia, China.

The Asia Forum of Chronobiology is a great scientific endeavor, a congregation of eminent circadian clock experts from Asia whose vast experience in biological rhythms. The meeting will be organized by the Chinese Society for Biological Rhythms.

We have an exciting scientific programmed lined up, with several opportunities for oral and poster communications of your research. This meeting will be an excellent opportunity to promote your research, network with early career researchers in the field and enjoy the Inner Mongolia scene.

This forum is sponsored by Chinese Society for Biological Rhythms, Inner Mongolia Agricultural University, Cam-Su GRC, Soochow University, Hebei Normal University, National Institute of Biological Sciences, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Nanjing University, Sun Yat-sen University, and Aschoff and Honma Memorial Foundation.
