Introduction

A healthy environment for animals and farmers, enhanced animal health and welfare, and minimum impact on the ecosystem continue to be a critical pillar of sustainable modern food animal production agriculture. Since 2011 the International Research Center for Animal Environment and Welfare (IRCAEW) has been hosting biennial symposia that aim to exchange cutting–edge research findings, discuss present and future needs of the production enterprise, explore ways to further interdisciplinary endeavors globally, and ultimately advance the science and technology for improved animal welfare/health, production efficiency, and environmental stewardship. The 2023 International Symposium on Animal Environment and Welfare (ISAEW 2023) will be held on October 23–25, 2023 in Rongchang, Chongqing, China. The symposium will use a hybrid format of in-person and on-line to accommodate the attendees whose travels may be affected by different reasons. This announcement provides information regarding timeline, thematic areas, organizing committees, registration, and travel logistics.
