Dear colleagues and friends,

I am very pleased to be able to invite you to the 15th European Poultry Conference, on behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Conference and in the name of all the members of the Society.

The Conference will take place from 17 to 21 September 2018 in Dubrovnik – one of the most beautiful towns in the Mediterranean.

In accordance to countries having opportunity to organize EPC several times, Croatia and Dubrovnik got this privilege and honor for the first time.

The venue will be Valamar Hotels and Resorts, the largest conference venue in Croatia.

By attending the Conference, which will be structured in plenary meetings, workshops, a poster sessions and an exhibition, as well as technical tours you will be able to get an overview of various relevant developments in the area of poultry science. The scientific programme of the XV European Poultry Conference has been developed in collaboration with the Chairmen of the Working Groups of the European federation of WPSA. It will be focused on the main issues currently related to poultry research and production in order to add to and improve knowledge in a world where information and innovations are spread rapidly.

Besides this rich official part of the Conference, we will prepare attractive and interesting program of social events, which will start at the welcome ceremony and will include a gala dinner, as well as excursions and pre- and post-conference tours, in order to meet and get inspired with all the beauties Croatia can offer.

You may find important information and updated versions of both official and social program on our website and follow all our activities and announcements before and during the Conference on Facebook, where we are looking forward to receiving feedback from you in form of comments and suggestions.

In hope that the XV Conference, both during its official parts and in the after-hours, will be another great opportunity to meet and socialize with colleagues and friends, I cordially welcome you and wish you a pleasant stay in our city!

We wish that Dubrovnik, as Mediterranean and Adriatic town with a rich past and interesting present, will represent a successful tradition, continuing the followed standards of excellence of the conference.
