As part of its on-going commitment to improving the way we understand and care for animals, the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) is pleased to announce the third of its series of unthemed one day conferences on ‘Recent advances in animal welfare science’ which is to be held on 21st June 2012 in York, at the UK city’s medieval Merchant Adventurers’ Hall , Fossgate. The conference aims to provide a forum at which the broad community of scientists, veterinarians and others concerned with animal welfare can come together to share knowledge and practice, discuss advances and exchange views. In keeping with this aim, registration for this meeting has been kept low - £25.00 (lunch not included).

Call for papers:
We would like to hear from anyone interested in making a contribution to the conference on the open subject of recent advances in applied ethology, veterinary and physiological science and the other disciplines that inform our understanding of animals and their welfare; both from those who are well established in this area and from those just beginning to make a contribution.

Submission of interest should include the title of the proposed contribution, the nature of the contribution – talk or poster, the name and full contact details of all contributors and an abstract, which must be in English, and should be no longer than 400 words. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 1st November 2011.

Further details, including a registration form can be found on the UFAW website: http://www.ufaw.org.uk/animal-welfare-conference.php

We hope that it looks of interest.
