Scientific programme

The general topic is ‘Animal farming for a healthy world‘.

The final scientific programme with session titles and timetables, will be available later, after evaluation of the submitted abstracts.

An overview of the sessions for which you can submit an abstract.

Note that you can submit an abstract to all sessions, except to the plenary and the challenge sessions. If you cannot find a suitable session for your abstract, please submit it to the free communications.

Please note that session and form of presentation (oral/poster) of submitted contributions may be changed, following the decision of the EAAP Scientific Committee.

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. The number of 'named' sessions is limited and the remaining sessions will be created from the abstracts submitted.

EAAP also continues a range of other sessions which are organised by the various EAAP Commissions and 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.
