Call for papers: Third LowInputBreeds Symposium/64th Annual EAAP Meeting

The third symposium of the European-funded research project LowInputBreeds project will take place in Nantes, France, from the 26th to the 30th of August 2013. It will be held in the framework of the 64th Annual Meeting of the European Federation of Animal Science (EAAP). Abstracts can be submitted by March 1, 2013


The main theme of the EAAP meeting will be "New challenges facing animal production for diversified territories, market demands and social expectations". The programme will cover all aspects of scientific achievements within animal production, including genetics, physiology, nutrition, management and health.

At the meeting, a number of selected oral presentations and study posters from a great number of scientists from Europe and world-wide will be presented, and workshops and discussions of the latest and most relevant research in the field of animal science will take place.

Participants will see good examples of successful partnerships of international teams bringing scientists and stakeholders together. Particular attention will be paid to efficient and faster transfer of knowledge and life education of professionals in the livestock sector. This is a unique occasion for updating knowledge and acquiring new ideas, and the organizers especially encourage young scientists and students to attend.

The LowInputBreeds project will contribute the session "Breeding and Management in Low Input Production Systems" to the EAAP meeting.

Previous symposia of the LowInputBrreds project took place in 2011 in Wageningen, The Netherlands, and in 2012 in Hammamet, Tunisia.
