Objective Summary

The Australian Poultry Science Symposium is the premier avian science conference in Australia and attracts delegates from Asia, Australasia, the Americas and Europe.
The 2017 event is going to be a very exciting one. We are moving away from the University Campus this year, into an inner city location. The move will allow us to access larger better quality facilities and provide a much larger range of accommodation options for delegates.
It is our goal over the coming years, to grow the attendance of this conference from around 250 people currently, up to 300-400 delegates. The move this year is the first step towards creating a bigger and better conference in the future.
There will again be an interesting array of local and international invited speakers, and as always, we will be inviting researchers far and wide to submit and present a large range of scientific papers, loaded with industry-relevant content. As usual, our extraordinary social program will also give you plenty of networking opportunities.
