Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of Asian Buffalo Association, I cordially invite you to the 8th Asian Buffalo Congress, which will be held in Istanbul, Turkey during 21st – 25th April 2015. The ABC 2015 is expected to provide a bridge between East and West that addresses key issues relevant to Water Buffalo production, the research and science communities, national and international regulatory bodies, policymakers and consumer organizations.
The theme of ABC 2015 is “sustainable production in the global economic world”. We believe that Global warming, environmental and ecological degradation, depletion of natural resources, natural and man-made hazards, and economic crises affect our modes of production, and consumption, demanding for new strategies in production systems and organizations and conduct.
The location has been chosen to reflect the role of Istanbul as a meeting point for East and West as the crossroads of different continents and cultures. You will also have the opportunity to visit many historical sites in İstanbul and Turkey.
In addition to the main congress, there will be the Pre-Congress Workshop on “Reproductive Biotechnology in Buffalo” during 18th – 21st April 2015.
In the spirit of traditional Turkish hospitality, I welcome you all to Istanbul, and wish 8th Asian Buffalo Congress you a fruitful meeting, and a pleasant stay.
On behalf of the organizing committee,
Prof. Dr. M. İhsan SOYSAL
Organizing Committee Chair
