The British Society of Animal Science and the Animal Husbandry Association of Thailand are pleased to announce a jointly organized conference to be held in Khon Kaen, Thailand in November 2005.

The conference on "Integrating Livestock-Crop Systems to Meet the Challenges of Globalisation" follows on in a series on livestock production in tropical/developing countries. The previous two meetings were held in Nairobi, Kenya (January 1998) and in Merida, Mexico (November 2002) and were most successful.

BSAS and AHAT look forward to working together to organize a conference of importance to delegates both within the Asean region and at an international level.

The conference will be held in Khon Kaen, Thailand at the Sofitel Raja Orchid Hotel, Khon Kaen, Thailand between 14-18 November 2005, and will provide an opportunity for animal scientists and those from related disciplines to discuss and debate research issues relating to livestock-crop systems of agriculture. The conference will consider all animal species (non-ruminant and ruminant, conventional and non-conventional) and all production systems (commercial and village). It will include key note invited papers, offered papers (both linked to the main themed sessions and as free communications), papers, field visits, trade exhibition and a full social programme.

The overall theme of the conference is "Integrating Livestock-Crop Systems to Meet The Challenges of Globalisation" and aims to enable delegates to discuss how aspects of animal production science and cropping can work together in systems.

The organizers will particularly welcome contributions which look at the wider issues of animal science and how they integrate with other disciplines (veterinary science, fisheries, agronomy, economics and extension, environmental).

This may include socio-economics, environmental issues, integrated fish systems, as well as research indicating the integration of tropical cropping systems (tree and plantation crops, grains, roots, vegetables, fruit, sugar cane) with livestock.

The conference will include key note invited papers, offered papers (both linked to the sessions and free communications), posters, field visits, trade stands and a full social programme. The official language of the conference is English.

* Academics and animal scientists.
