We are delighted that, after 25 years, the International Symposium on Ruminant Physiology will again be taking place in Germany. We cordially invite you to Leipzig in September 2019. Sometimes called the “Little Paris”, Leipzig is now to be the location for this unique event that convenes experts in ruminant physiology from all over the world.
Every five years, the ISRP provides a great opportunity to present the state-of-the-art thinking and practice in ruminant physiology to an international audience of specialists. In a tradition going back more than 60 years, the symposium is an excellent venue at which to assemble researchers in the field of ruminant physiology. There is no other scientific convention in the world that offers such depth of topic coverage.
The local organising committee is looking forward to four days of fascinating presentations. The topics of the meeting include the physiology of the gastrointestinal tract, intermediate metabolism and its regulation, reproduction and lactation, requirements for animal housing in view of climate change, and ruminants as a subject for comparative physiology.
Besides the exciting scientific programme, with its up-to-date topics and recent findings, we provide a multifaceted social programme with trips to the environs of Leipzig. It is an opportunity both to get in touch with international associates and to become acquainted with the culture and history of our region.
You are invited to attend the symposium in the art nouveau KONGRESSHALLE am Zoo Leipzig, only a stone's throw from the city centre, where you can also discover the city that inspired famous composers like Handel and Bach, as well as the writers Goethe and Schiller.
The local organising committee, together with the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover Foundation, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Leipzig and the Leipzig Trade Fair and Exhibition Centre look forward to welcoming you.
