INT: WC9 call for abstracts open

We are cordially inviting you to participate in the 9th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences which will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on August 24-28, 2014. The world congress provides an exceptional forum to underline the importance of both the ethical issues of animal experimentation and the 3Rs approach to the life sciences in the 21st century.


Since the new generation of scientists is committed to the 3R principles, during the last decade these principles have been ac­cepted globally and in Europe they have been implemented in the policy on the protection of animals used for scientific pur­poses. The world congress will provide you with an opportunity to share your scientific results and experience in use and wel­fare of experimental animals, to expand your knowledge on 3Rs policies in different parts of the world, and to get updated on innovative tools for educating young scientists in the 3Rs.


Czech society has always relied on humane traditions and responsiveness to maintain sustainability of the environment including the animals, which is captured by the motto of WC9 “Humane Science in the 21st Century”.


We are looking forward to share new ideas with you in August next year in Prague.

Abstract submission deadline: April 1, 2014
