A Message from the Symposium Co-chairs

Dear Participants:

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the International Research Center for Animal Environment and Welfare (IRCAEW, http://www.ircaew.org/), we are very delighted that you are a contributing part of the bi-annual 2015 International Symposium on Animal Environment and Welfare (ISAEW2015)! Built on the success and the same guiding principle of ISAEW2013, ISAEW2015 aims to address issues facing the global animal production industry by bringing together some of the very best minds and the future professionals in the field to share the latest research, technological advancements, farm-level application, and future visions. As done for ISAEW2013, special international experts were invited to address state of the science and situations on the thematic topics, including sustainability and fundamentals of animal agriculture – outlook and implications for agricultural research, animal welfare and food production in the 21st century, use of animals as real-time biosensors for precision livestock farming, novel techniques for automatically assessing animal well-being and behaviors in research and commercial production, alternative housing systems to improve animal welfare, holistic approaches in assessing animal production systems, manure nutrient management to improve environmental stewardship, and experiences with auditing systems for compliance of environmental and welfare guidelines. Along with the invited presentations to support the central themes of the symposium are nearly 50 quality contributing papers from global researchers.

Conducting cutting-edge international symposia on animal environment and welfare is one of the Center’s mission-oriented programs. ISEAW2013 has already yielded appreciable dividends in terms of enhancing the research interests and elevating awareness, forging global research cooperation/networking, and adoption of new technologies in commercial animal production and research. We hope that you will once again find ISEAW2015 academically stimulating and culturally enriching.

Our special gratitude goes to the extraordinary hosts at Chongqing Academy of Animal Sciences, especially President Liu Zuohua and Professor Liu Wen, who worked tirelessly to make the local arrangements and provide the outstanding support. As well, kudos to the Symposium Proceedings Subcommittee – Dr. Jiqin Ni (Purdue University), Dr. Chaoyuan Wang (China Agricultural University), and Dr. Teng Lim (University of Missouri) for their dedicated work in coordinating reviews of the papers and assembling the proceedings.

Finally we wish you an enjoyable stay in the beautiful Rongchang, Chongqing, China! If we can be of any assistance to enhance your experience, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Best regards,
