Call for Abstracts
2019 Asia for Animals Symposium
Dalian, China - October 18-20, 2019
The 11th Asia for Animals Symposium (AFAS) will be held in Dalian, China from October 18th to 20th, 2019. AFAS is a biennial event that brings together animal protection professionals, experts, scholars, and advocates from around the world. This is the 'Olympics' of the animal protection field - a time to recognize human indebtedness to nonhuman animals; an occasion to draw support and inspiration from each other; a venue to share experience, research, and best practice; and a forum to celebrate accomplishments since the last symposium.
The theme of the 2019 Dalian AFAS is 'Using laws creatively to protect animals'. Animal cruelty should be confronted by all means. But in the final analysis it should be dealt with through laws - laws that address animal cruelty directly and laws that do not seem to be related to animal cruelty.
You are welcome to submit abstracts on legal protection of animals in all categories with an emphasis on; but not limited to;
(1) how an animal protection law or policy has been made and the lessons learned.
The deadline of abstract submission is June 15, 2019.
Abstracts must be written in English and no more than 1000 words. Please also include a brief bio with contact information. Please indicate if you are submitting your abstract for oral presentation or poster presentation or for both.
You can submit your abstract here: http://www.afachina.org.cn/Abstract/.
You will be informed of the decision on your abstract before July 15, 2019.
