2022 AAAS Conference

Tuesday 5 July to Thursday 7 July – Cairns

On behalf of the Australian Association of Animal Sciences, we invite you to Cairns and the 34th AAAS conference: Anchoring knowledge, exploring animal science ecosystems.

For science to have an impact – for knowledge to be anchored – it needs to be ratified, shared, applied and reviewed. The 2022 AAAS conference program is being thoughtfully prepared entice innovation and blue-sky thinking, and to pull our knowledge and expertise together to make our science impactful to all animal industries. We are not only at the cutting edge of animal science, but we are also in a unique position to help shape the future direction of agricultural and ecological services.

Join us in Cairns for thought-provoking keynote speakers, tropically-enhanced networking, and field tours that showcase two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Wet Tropics Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

Cairns is where the rangelands meet the rainforest, and the rainforest meets the sea – a truly spectacular location for a conference theme that aims to explore all parts of the animal science ecosystem. We challenge you to consider the ecosystems around us and how animals – be it production, native, sport or companion, play a role in both the natural environment and the man-made world.

The tropical north awaits us,
See you in Cairns for AAAS2022.

Warm regards,
Luis Prada e Silva
Conference Chair
