On behalf of the French Organising Committee, I am pleased to invite you to attend the 64th Annual Meeting of the EAAP which will take place in Nantes from the 26th to the 30th of August, 2013. This will be the third time that France has hosted this meeting, with the last time being in Toulouse in 1990.

The main theme of the meeting will be “New challenges facing animal production for diversified territories, market demands and social expectations”. The programme will cover all aspects of scientific achievements within animal production, including genetics, physiology, nutrition, management and health.You will have the opportunity to attend a number of selected oral presentations and study posters from a great number of scientists from Europe and world-wide. You will also take part in workshops and discussions of the latest and most relevant research in the field of Animal Science. You will see good examples of successful partnerships of international teams bringing scientists and stakeholders together. We will also pay attention to efficient and faster transfer of knowledge and life education of professionals in the livestock sector. This is a unique occasion for updating knowledge and acquiring new ideas, and we especially encourage young scientists and students to attend.

We are sure that all of you will have a productive meeting from a scientific point of view and that you will also enjoy the social events, landscape, culture and hospitality in France. We look forward to seeing you in Nantes during the last week of August 2013 for a highly professional, successful and enjoyable event.

Henri Seegers   President of the French Organising Committee

Au nom du comité français d’organisation, je suis heureux de vous inviter à assister au 64ième congrés annuel de la Fédération Européenne de Zootechnie (EAAP : European Federation of Animal Science) qui aura lieu à Nantes du 26 au 30 août 2013. Ce sera la troisième fois que la France accueille ce congrès ; la dernière fois c’était à Toulouse en 1990.

Le principal thème de ce congrès est « les nouveaux défis de la production animale pour des territoires, des demandes du marché et des attentes sociétales diversifiés ». Le programme couvrira toutes les approches scientifiques en production animale, en incluant la génétique, la physiologie, la nutrition, la gestion et la santé. Vous pourrez assister à de nombreuses présentations orales sélectionnées et étudier des posters venant d’un grand nombre de scientifiques de l’Europe et du monde entier. Vous participerez également aux workshops et discussions sur la toute dernière recherche en sciences animales. Vous verrez de bons exemples de réussites de partenariat rassemblant des équipes internationales et des professionnels. Nous porterons également beaucoup d’attention au transfert rapide et efficace des connaissances ainsi qu’à la formation des professionnels de l’élevage. C’est une occasion unique pour mettre à jour vos connaissances et pour acquérir des nouvelles idées. Nous encourageons les jeunes scientifiques et les étudiants à participer.

Nous sommes sûrs que  cette réunion sera productive pour tous du point de vue scientifique et que vous apprécierez également les événements sociaux, la beauté des lieux ainsi que la culture et l’accueil des français. Nous sommes impatients de vous accueillir à Nantes la dernière semaine d’aout 2013 pour un événement qui vous sera très profitable aussi bien sur les plans professionnel que personnel.

Henri Seegers, Président du comité français d’organisation
