UFAW International Animal Welfare Conference 2024

Date: 10/07/2024

Porto, Portugal







10th to 11th July 2024


A fundamental element of UFAW’s mission is the dissemination of evidence-based animal welfare information, so we are delighted to be holding our annual conference on 10 – 11 July 2024 in Porto, Portugal. This conference will serve as a platform for a diverse array of presentations encompassing all areas of animal welfare science and feature both talks and posters.

Hosting the conference in-person will facilitate valuable networking and collaboration opportunities, however we acknowledge that logistical constraints may prevent some of our colleagues from attending in person. To ensure that the latest developments in animal welfare science are open to all, we will also be live streaming the talks and making the poster presentations available online.

Submission timetable

  • Abstract submission deadline – 1 February 2024
  • Notification of abstract acceptance – by 1 March 2024
  • Deadline for submitting amendments to accepted abstracts – 31 May 2024

*Please note – all presenters must attend the meeting in person.


Registration will open in February 2024. More details will be available shortly.
