On behalf of the scientific, advisory and organization committee of the Congress, we invite students, professors, researchers and professionals from industry to participate to the 2nd
IFTC. The aim is that the IFTC 2022 will bring together people from research institutions and from industry to exchange knowledge and expertise, to share technical and scientific developments in the fields of animal feed technology and to discuss the latest results. The goal is to provide a vehicle to enhance cooperation between industry and research institutions and to allow creation of innovative projects and collaborations.
The congress will see thematic presentations by international keynote speakers as well as oral and poster presentations. Contributions to the IFTC 2022 will be published as a special issue of the Journal ‘Animal Feed Science & Technology’.
Themes of the congress
The 2022 Congress themes include research into new technologies without the necessity to be typical associated with the animal feed industry, feed ingredients, compound diets or animal species. Future challenges require novel solutions which can originate from all kinds of technologies, commonly employed in other sector such as the food or the sensor industry. In addition, research into the effects of technology on (anti)nutrients (how to improve feeding value) are welcome also with respect to physical properties (feed structure, texture, ... etc.). Finally, we like to focus on the technology directed towards pre-mixtures and feed additives/bio-active products. Spraying and coating techniques for mash and pellets, for example, are a fascinating subject for the congress.
The Congress themes in short:
1- New technologies for future solutions
2- Valorization of raw materials by technology
3- Technology of pre-mixtures and feed additives/bio-active products
Next to contributions to animal (incl. production, companion, zoo, etc) nutrition, technologies associated with human foods are welcome.
Please send us an Email with your contribution to the IFTC 2022: the Abstract (see Format)
should include a title, name of author(s) and affiliation(s) and one-page pdf-abstract; letter type, times new roman font size 11 (references 10 pnts). Please mention ‘IFTC 2022 Abstract’ in the Email subject line. The Abstract – once accepted - will appear in the ’Book of Abstracts’ that will be used during the Congress. Your abstract will be reviewed by the IFTC scientific committee on suitability to the themes of the congress and scientific quality.
Deadline for the submission of Abstracts to the IFTC is 1 March, 2022; please email you contribution(s) to: Thomas.vanderpoel@IFTC.online
For each theme of the Congress, we will invite a keynote speakers (45 min.), three oral presentations (30 min. each) and three contributions for a poster pitch (10 min. each). A decision on acceptance (yes/no) of the Abstract will be provided two weeks after submission with all accepted Abstracts published in a Book of Abstracts, available for the participants at the Congress. A further notification of the Abstract acceptance - oral or poster - will be provided on 15 April 2022.
