On behalf of the CIISA´s Coordination Team and Congress Organizing Commitee, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the CIISA Congress 2022 under the theme “Innovation in Animal, Veterinary and Biomedical Research”.
The Plenary Sessions feature internationally renowned keynote speakers, most of whom have ongoing collaborations with CIISA’s scientists. One speaker for each of the four sessions that constitute the scientific programme - Biomedical Sciences and Biotechnology, Animal and Food Science, Animal Health and Clinical Research. In addition to these 4 talks, there will be an “out of the box” presentation by fellow veterinarian Diogo Guerra, addressing the art and science of scientific illustration.
As in previous editions, the Oral Communications and Poster Presentation Sessions intend to showcase ongoing research, in particular from more junior colleagues. To further motivate them, awards will be conferred to the best poster and oral presentations by MSc and PhD students.
Importantly, this is the first congress we organize since AL4AnimalS – Associate Laboratory for Animal and Veterinary Sciences, has been instituted and, therefore, it includes a relevant participation of our colleagues from CECA and CECAV, to whom we extend a very warm welcome and thank for joining us.
After two years of COVID pandemic and postponed meetings, we are hoping this will be an enjoyable and fruitful meeting, that will reinforce links within AL4AnimalS and yield good ideas for future collaborations.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
