28th APSS 2017 – Australian Poultry Science Symposium


13-15 February 2017 – Sheraton on the Park, Sydney

The Australian Poultry Science Symposium is the premier poultry science conference in Australia and attracts delegates from across the Country and from all around the World. 

This year conference will focus on the topic of “The Physiology of poultry Performance”. The Symposium will move away from the University Campus this year, into an inner city location. The move will allow to access better facilities providing a much larger range of accommodation options for delegates.

The Organisers’ main goal over the coming years is to grow the attendance of this conference from around 250 people currently, up to 300-400 delegates. In this sense, the move will be 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, the organizers will be inviting researchers far and wide to submit and present a large range of scientific papers, loaded with industry-relevant content. As usual, an extraordinary social program will be scheduled with plenty of networking opportunities.
