Feb. 26, 2013 - Registration is now open for the Joint Annual Meeting of the American Dairy Science Association and the American Society of Animal Science. The meeting will take place in Indianapolis, IN from July 8 to 12, 2013.

The Joint Annual Meeting (JAM) will feature 35 symposia on topics such as animal genetics, food science and animal well-being. The organizers have planned additional high-level workshops, including a hands-on media training workshop on July 12.

Animal and dairy scientists work hard to protect animal health, food safety and the environment. The 2013 JAM is a chance for researchers to share their data and their passion for the field. Attendees will learn about scientific developments and new technologies used in research.

Attendees will also network with scientists from around the world. The organizers expect more than 3,000 attendees from more than 50 countries. There will also be special career development events for graduate students.
