Time is running out for those who wish to claim a reduced rate when booking their place at UFAW’s forthcoming international symposium on the 27th-29th June at the Royal Holloway, University of London, Surrey, UK. Those who register before 1 March 2017 will be able to claim this rate.
UFAW has just announced a programme of speakers, addressing how and what we can assess to determine animals’ subjective states and hence their welfare. Topics include the future of zoo animal welfare science, a comparative framework to determine which animals are aware of their pain, and sleep disturbances as an indicator of animal welfare to the challenge of assessing welfare in abattoirs and boredom in animals.
Further details about this meeting, including the full programme of speakers, venue and how to register can be found here. To ensure attendance, early registration is encouraged as UFAW symposia are usually over-subscribed and places have been filling fast. Those who register before the 1st March will qualify for a reduced rate.
