The field of animal welfare is a cross-disciplinary area of study that seeks to offer guidance and find solutions to the challenges raised by our caring for and interactions with both kept and wild animals. As part of its on-going commitment to improving animal welfare through increased scientific understanding of animals’ needs and how these can be met, UFAW is holding the sixth of its series of one day conferences on ‘Recent advances in animal welfare science’ on 28th June 2018.

This regular meeting, which is held in Newcastle this year for the first time, aims to provide a forum at which the broad and growing international community of scientists, veterinary surgeons and others concerned with animal welfare can come together to share knowledge and practice, discuss advances and exchange views.

This meeting will feature talks and poster presentations from both established animal welfare scientists and others and from those at the beginning of their research careers. 


The deadline for submission of abstracts is 24th November 2017.
