Venue: Lecture Theatre, Institute of Molecular Biology at Academia Sinica | City: Taipei, Taiwan
We are pleased to announce that the 9th Avian Model Systems meeting will be held on Mar 28 (Mon) – 31 (Thu), 2016 in Taipei, Taiwan. The Center for the integrative Evolutionary Galliform Genomics (iEGG) of the National Chung Hsing University and the Institute of Molecular Biology at Academia Sinica are proud to organize the “Avian Model Systems 9: A New Integrative Platform”.
Starting from 2003, the Avian Model Systems meeting has being a great occasion for people using avian experimental models to communicate their new findings, address the challenges in their researches, and form networks to establish long-term connection with each other. During this four-day meeting of the Avian Model Systems 9, we have arranged seven keynote lectures given by established researchers and seven sessions covering various featured topics, including Avian Behavior, Avian Biotechniques, Developmental Biology, Genetic/Genomic Analysis, Poultry Science, Hormone and Physiology, and the Origin and Evolution of Birds. We will take this opportunity to bring together the people of different scientific disciplines to exchange new ideas with each other, and hopefully to initiate future collaboration between you and our scientific associates. Moreover, to encourage the participation of young scientists to the meeting, the Avian Model Systems 9 offers Youth Travel Awards to junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.
We hope that you could help us to circulate the information about the “Avian Model Systems 9” to your members of the World’s Poultry Science Association. We would appreciate it if you would encourage your members to attend the meeting, submit abstracts and apply for the travel awards.
Our on-line registration and abstract submission system is now open. Please take advantage of our special early bird registration rate by December 31, 2015.

We are looking forward to meeting you all in Taipei this coming spring in 2016.
