Welcome to

DPP 2021

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are excited to announce the 15th International Symposium on Digestive Physiology of Pigs to be held in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) between the 8 and 11 June of 2021 (DPP2021). Previous conferences have been held triennially in France, Denmark, Poland, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden, Canada, Denmark, Spain, USA, Poland and Australia and have become recognized as the international scientific forum on digestive physiology of pigs.

As organizing committee we aim to continue to organize a high quality scientific symposium with a strong attractive conference program, which would attract researchers from academia and industry in the domain of digestive physiology and nutrition of pigs. We continue to thrive to link our research domain to challenges of our society in terms of e.g. food security and environmental sustainability.

The program will be built around selected topics introduced by high quality keynote speakers. Together the symposium will contribute to the further advance the field of digestive physiology in pigs and to the further development of “Science for Sustainable Nutrition”. We invite you to submit your details via the expression of interest page on our website (www.DPP2021.com). In doing so, you will automatically receive future announcements and other updates relevant to the DPP2021.
