Petfood Forum

Where the Global Petfood Industry does business.

April 3-5, 2017


Petfood Forum 2016 Call for Papers:
Oral Presentations & Scientific Posters

The call for papers for Petfood Forum 2016 is now closed. 

Petfood Forum 2016 took place on April 18-20 at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri, USA. Oral presentation submissions are no longer being accepted. Oral presentations and scientific posters will be handled as two separate submission processes.

An advisory board of pet food industry experts will evaluate all submissions for:

  • Relevance of topic
  • Presence of new or innovative information, concepts or research; originality is key, so please be sure your abstract gives a clear idea of how your topic is unique and/or based on new research findings or work not found elsewhere
  • Proposed speaker’s experience or background with the topic
  • Lack of commercialization or promotion—it is crucial that the paper/presentation does not come across as a sales pitch, seeking to promote your organization or product(s)
  • Evidence of previous speaking experience.

No abstract will be considered if it seems commercial or if it has been published or presented prior to Petfood Forum 2016.

Submissions review process

If you already submitted your abstract and it is chosen for an oral presentation, you will receive a PowerPoint template to use to create your presentation, including a set range of number of slides and recommended amount of information or bullet points to include on each slide. Please use and follow this template.

Speakers will be required to sign a copyright release to permit publication of the abstract and use of all materials in other media.
