COMPARATIVE NUTRITION SOCIETY ─ SEVENTH BIENNIAL SYMPOSIUM
Liscombe Lodge Resort
Nova Scotia, Canada
8-12 August 2008


ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 15 May 2008

Please see our website <http://www.cnsweb.org/> for more information.

Situated in a tranquil riverside setting, along Nova Scotia's beautiful 
Eastern Shore, the CNS meetings at Liscombe Lodge <www.liscombelodge.ca> 
provide a stimulating Conference experience. The entire meeting ─ talks, 
meals, and social events ─ are taken in a group setting. This provides 
attendees with opportunities for in-depth discussions among students and 
scientists from diverse backgrounds in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. 
In the immediate vicinity, there are numerous outdoor activities to 
enjoy before and after the sessions.

Our Symposia are characterized by:

Longer conference presentations with open discussions and varied topics, 
serving both established and young scientists

Distinctive, intimate conference locations where members can build 
connections and relationships

As part of the Comparative Nutrition Society’s goal of encouraging young 
scientists, the following awards are available:

Two Student Travel Awards ($1,000 each and meeting registration waived)
* The Susan Crissey Memorial Scholarship recognizes student research in 
captive animals
* The Malcolm Ramsey Memorial Scholarship recognizes student research in 
field animals

Three Student Presentation Awards ($500 each) for best oral and poster 
presentations

Who are we?

* A cross-disciplinary Society with members interested in all aspects of 
comparative animal nutrition including nutrition of wildlife, livestock 
and humans; nutritional ecology; digestive physiology; biochemistry; and 
conservation

* CNS members are from academia, commerce, government, and animal 
husbandry (including zoos and aquaria)

We look forward to seeing you in August!

Best wishes,
Karen A. Bjorndal
President, CNS
