The deadline for abstract submission of the 16th ICPD has closed and a total of 180 abstracts have been submitted for presentation. Moreover, 10 invited speakers with well-known research expertise have already confirmed their contribution to complete the scientific programme dedicated to production diseases in farm animals.
The International Conference on Production Diseases in farm animals (ICPD) is a triennial event for people working in various disciplines related to health and disease in animals managed for food production. From 20-23 June 2016 the 16th ICPD will be organized in Wageningen, with 10 scientific sessions on topics varying from heat stress to reproduction and from locomotion to economics. The social programme will include excursions to the Wageningen UR research facilities and Burgers’ Zoo.
