Animal Science and Technology: Ensuring Food Security

As our society enters into a new era of opportunities, the 2017 program committee will build upon our recent successes and continue to revitalize our annual meeting. This year, the program will offer symposia that feature current issues, technologies and scientific discoveries under the umbrella of global food security. We are soliciting full symposia on topics linking to our meeting theme that include expert speakers both within and outside of the circle of animal scientists. Symposia that feature new faces and rising stars are encouraged. To further expose membership to leading scientists and unify short presentations within a topic, platform speakers will be introduced as anchors to existing sessions. These subtle changes allow for the incorporation of greater numbers of talented speakers into the program by removing structured programmatic barriers.
