Sign up now for BSAS 2018 in Dublin

 

Registration is now open to attend the BSAS 2018 annual conference in Dublin.

Join BSAS as it looks at the best ways to use technology and innovation to help tackle the challenge of sustainable food production.

Held for the first time at the iconic Croke Park in Dublin, the conference will examine at how animal science and research is driving production systems, and helping feed the world’s growing population.

Taking place from 9 to 11 April - with a special Student Day on Monday 9 April - the conference, ‘Innovation to compete in the global livestock industry’, will feature experts from across the world as they discuss the science and technology which is shaping animal production.

Attracting more than 500 delegates from across the world, the event will cover subjects ranging from cutting-edge technology for feed management, to sustainable livestock systems, and nutrition, health and welfare.

Other sessions will focus on animal breeding and genetics, global dairy systems, innovation in pig production and the challenges and solutions for sustainable fin fish production.

As the UK prepares to leave the European Union, this year’s conference will also include special workshops on the economic challenges of Brexit, CAP reform, globalisation and climate change.

Plus this year’s annual Hammond Lecture, ‘Precision agriculture meets the omics revolution’, will look at the ways the latest branches of animal science and technology can work together to create the most high-tech, sustainable production systems.

Tickets for the 2018 annual conference are priced at £440 for members and £535 for non-members. However, if you register before 12 February you can take advantage of our early bird price of £395 for BSAS members, £490 for non-members and just £170 for BSAS student members.
