Scientific programme

The final scientific programme with session titles and timetables, is now available. More than 1250 abstracts have been submitted and 73 scientific sessions have been organised by the different commissions of EAAP.

As in previous years, EAAP has expanded the types of sessions in the annual meeting and altered the way of making up some of the sessions. EAAP also continues a range of other sessions which are organised by the various EAAP Commissions and are open for anyone to attend.

These are:

a. Challenge sessions will provide a forum to create/support networks, proposals for developing research/dissemination/training, discussing and responding to consultations, joint discussion with international organisations, training on new technologies and techniques etc. The format, which will not be the conventional invited/offered papers sessions, will include true workshops, roundtable debates, open committees and training sessions.

b. Discovery sessions will be for the interest of all delegates and will consider the future developments and new disciplines/technologies vital to an evolving animal science. They will be organised under the banner of one Commission but can involve other Commissions, the local organisers, EAAP Working Groups or any other source. They will comprise invited papers.

c. Young train session: the Cattle Commission organizes a session on ‘Dairy innovative research and extension’. Topics related to the dairy animal, production, environment and product are welcome. Share your analysis and work at this informal session. The session forms part of the Novus award for the best dairy presentation, offering a visit to the ADSA/ASAS congress in 2020.

d. Early career competition: this year the Pig Commission will organise a session on 'Innovative approaches to pig production and pig research'. If you are 38 years or younger, want to present a topic that falls within the scope of the session, and want to participate in that contest, please submit your abstract to this session. The winner receives a scholarship to attend the EAAP congress in 2020, offered by Wageningen Academic Publishers.
