Don’t miss your chance to present at EAAP 2016


Submissions are now open to present at Europe’s largest animal science event.

Would-be presenters have until 1 March to make their submission to present at the 67th meeting of EAAP, held this year in Belfast from 29 August to 2 September.

The event, which brings together more than 1200 scientists from across the world, is set to feature some 1000 presentations from scientists, industry leaders and experts in sustainability as they discuss the future of global livestock production.

Focusing on the developments in sustainable livestock systems, the conference will cover a host of subjects around animal science, including genetics, nutrition, management, health and animal physiology.

EAAP 2016 organisers are now calling for submissions from anyone connected to the livestock sector, regardless of what capacity they work in and their level of experience.

This includes animal scientists, farmers, social scientists, consultants, lecturers, government and agency experts, extension officers, students and Nuffield scholars.

Topics should ideally fit into the list of technical topics, which includes cattle, sheep, goat and pig production, the equine sector as well as fish, food and industry-relevant science. The full list can be found on the EAAP website.

An unforgettable event

Mike Steele from the EAAP2016 organising team said: “We welcome anyone, from students to experienced scientists and practitioners, to submit an abstract and join us for what will be a great conference and networking event between the research community and the animal industry.

“With leading edge presenters and delegates from over 70 countries, Belfast 2016 will be Europe's largest animal science conference this year.”

Based in the brand new Waterfront Conference at the centre of Belfast, speakers and delegates will be able to take part in an extensive social programme which will make sure EAAP 2016 will be an unforgettable event, Mr Steele added

“We’re hugely excited to welcome speakers and delegates to Northern Ireland, and would encourage people to make their submissions now so they don’t miss out on this fantastic conference.”
