Important notice:

Abstracts must not exceed 2,500 key strokes, including title, authors and addresses, and including spaces and punctuation.

The title of your abstract can take up to 100 key strokes, including spaces.

An author is allowed to present two contributions. Do not submit more than two contributions per presenting author.

Please make sure that you indicate the presenting author very carefully. Be aware that if this presenting author does not register in time, your contribution will be removed from the program.

Note that you can submit an abstract to all sessions, except the plenary and the challenge sessions. If you cannot find a suitable session for abstract, please submit to the free communications.

Please note that session and form of presentation (oral/poster) of submitted contributions may be changed, following the decision of the EAAP Scientific Committee.

Additional information for Authors submitting abstracts for EAAP 2022 in Porto:

As in previous years, EAAP has expanded the types of sessions that it is including in the EAAP annual meeting and altering the way is makes up some of the sessions.

We are calling for all your abstracts and are happy to take them on any relevant topic. You have two choices:

  1. Look at the list of sessions (and its subtitle) and if your paper fits one of these subjects then please choose the relevant session. You will notice that some of these are labelled 'Industry sessions'. These will comprise a mix of industry and research papers on the specified topic. You don't have to be industry to submit to these sessions.
  2. If you cannot find a session that suits your paper then please submit it as a 'Free Communication' and categorize it by species, disciple and keyword, using the system provided. EAAP will construct several sessions from these papers. These sessions will contain papers on a similar topic to yours and be given a relevant title in the program. Thus the program will reflect what is current in the research community and make the session relevant to your work, and that of your fellow authors.

For your interest, EAAP also continues a range of other sessions which are organized by the various EAAP Commissions and open for anyone to attend. These are:

  1. Challenge sessions

    Challenge sessions will provide a forum to create/support networks, proposals for developing research/ dissemination/training, discussing and responding to consultations, joint discussion with international organizations, training on new technologies and techniques etc. The format, which will not be the conventional invited / offered papers sessions, will include true workshops, roundtable debates, open committees and training sessions.

  2. Discovery sessions

    These will be for the interest of all delegates and will consider the future developments and new disciplines/technologies vital to an evolving animal science. They will be organized under the banner of one Commission but can involve other Commissions, the local organizers, EAAP Working Groups or any other source. They will comprise invited papers.

  3. Young train session

    The Cattle Commission organizes a session on 'Dairy research and extension' (session 6). Topics related to the dairy animal, production, environment and product are welcome. Share your analysis and work at this informal session. The session forms part of the Novus award for the best dairy presentation, offering a visit to the ADSA/ASAS congress in 2023.

  4. Early career competition

    This year the Pig Commission will organize a session on 'Innovative approaches to pig and poultry production' (session 45). If you are 38 years or younger, want to present a topic that falls within the scope of the session, and want to participate in that contest, please submit your abstract to this session. The winner receives a scholarship to attend the EAAP congress in 2023, offered by Wageningen Academic Publishers.
