The first International Conference on Animal Care (ICAC) Kobe was started in 2009, 15 years after the 1995 Kobe Earthquake (Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake) caused tragic human and animal suffering. Commemorating 20 years since the Kobe Earthquake, the 4th International Conference on All Creatures Care in KOBE 2015 will be held in July 2015. This conference aims to improve the welfare of animals all over the world by showing that our responsibilities extend far and wide within and beyond our society.
The ICAC KOBE 2015 programme includes a keynote, symposium, and reception, as well as a presentation by professionals and poster displays by graduate students.
The professional presentations (oral sessions) have four themes, including:
One Plan Approach ~Integrated Way to Live in Coexistence with Wild Animals~,
ICAC are still accepting applications for the professional presentations and the poster displays.
