  • Solutions to the challenges for animal breeding, where the focus is on the contribution to the challenge rather than the technical details of the methodology
  • Solutions to societal challenges using animal breeding: focus on the challenges and the contribution to the challenge rather than the technical details of the research and applied methodology
  • Species-specific and recurrent technical sessions, where you can share methods and results with peers working in the same area

For questions related to the Call for Papers or directed to the Scientific Committee, please contact
