The 17th Animal Science Congress of AAAP will be held at Kyushu Sangyo University, Fukuoka, Kyusyu Area in Japan, from 22 to 25 August 2016. The aim of this congress is to provide a forum for the exchange of new information on animal sciences and technology, with a focus on successful strategies for the sustainable promotion of livestock considering the environment and welfare of livestock and human beings. At the same time, the congress will provide a venue for people from both inside and outside of the Asian Australasian region to make new contacts and renew friendships. Japanese Society of Animal Science is organizing the 17th AAAP Congress and is pleased to welcome everyone in this congress who are interested in animal science and production.
The venue of the congress, Fukuoka City, where tradition meets modernity, with delicious dishes and an excellent geographic location close to the Asian countries.

We highly appreciate the warm messages of concern and encouragement from many of you for the suffering of major earthquakes which took place in Kumamoto on April 14 and 16.
Nevertheless, we’d like to ask you not to worry too much to come to Fukuoka, since the venues of AAAP2016 are reasonably away from the epicenter.
We look forward to meeting you soon in August.

Prof. Mitsuhiro Furuse
President of 17th AAAP
