Australian Poultry Science Symposium (APSS)


The Australian Poultry Science Symposium is the premier avian science conference in Australia and attracts delegates from Asia, Australasia, the Americas and Europe. For those who attended the 25th Anniversary Event last year, I think that you will agree that our alternate venues were fantastic and very well received. It was a great way to celebrate our history, going back to some of the venues where APSS began.
APSS 2015 will be held back at our regular venue, the Veterinary Science Conference Centre. We will have another interesting line-up of invited speakers, with loads of industry-relevant content and as usual, our extraordinary social program to give you plenty of networking opportunities.
