34th Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium

6 – 8 February, 2023

The Australian Poultry Science Symposium (APSS) is the premier avian science conference in Australia and attracts delegates from all across Australia and around the World. 2023 will be the 34th edition of the symposium and we are extremely excited to announce that we will be returning to the Sheraton Grand Sydney Hyde Park.

We have all experienced a very different world since our event in 2020, which we were extremely lucky to squeeze in right before the beginning of the pandemic. Through-out this difficult time we have still managed to maintain, and even grow interest in the symposium, offering a virtual conference over the past 2 years, which was extremely well attended. We have however made the decision to revert back to being exclusively FACE-TO FACE in 2023, not hybrid, as we want to encourage everyone to come back together to network, collaborate and of course socialise.

This years over-arching theme will be “Global Volatility and Poultry Industry Sustainability”.
There will again be an outstanding array of local and international invited speakers, and as always, we will be inviting researchers far and wide to submit and present a large range of scientific papers, loaded with industry-relevant content and cutting edge research. As usual, our extraordinary social program will also provide everyone with plenty of networking opportunities over the 3 day event.
