Welcome Message

From Dr. Grégoy Bédécarrats, Chairperson of the ISAE 2016 Organizing Committee

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to participate in the 11th International Symposium on Avian Endocrinology (ISAE2016) to be held at the White Oaks Conference Resort in Niagara-on-the-Lake , October 11-14, 2016.

ISAE is an event which takes place every four years in a rotation system between Asia, Europe, and America, and is dedicated to showcase up-to-date advancements in the field of avian endocrinology, while bringing together scientists from all over the world. With a combination of plenary lectures, symposia, and poster sessions, ISAE2016 is the ideal venue to meet other scientists and exchange information on a wide range of avian species. Topics discussed include, endocrinology of behaviour, endocrine disruptors, neuro-endocrine control of reproduction, feeding and metabolism, circadian rhythms and clock genes.

Beyond the scientific content, ISAE2016 is proud to offer attendees a variety of social activities including a welcome ceremony, a unique closing celebration, and various touristic activities.

Niagara-on-the-Lake is a quaint historical town located in Southern Ontario surrounded by dozens of wineries and in close proximity to Niagara Falls and Toronto.

This website will provide all the necessary information and updates on the conference venue, registration, scientific program and schedule, abstract submission, accommodation, social activities, and travel. Prospective participants also have the option to register their email to receive reminders of important dates and deadlines, updates and additional information as they become available.

The organizing committee has secured a special reduced rate at the White Oaks Conference Resort for accommodation of participants . The number of rooms blocked for ISAE 2016 is limited and will be offered on a first come first serve basis, thus, we strongly encourage participants to plan in advance. As an alternative, several additional hotels located nearby provide a range of accommodation rates.

We are looking forward to hosting you in Niagara-on-the-Lake in October 2016, and enjoy a conducive environment for scientific interactions, fun social and touristic activities, and the beautiful fall colours of Southern Ontario.
