DPP 2021 postponed to 2022

Dear colleagues,

The current developments around the Covid-19 pandemic around the world has forced the organizing committee of the 15th International Symposium on Digestive Physiology of Pigs (DPP2022) to decide to postpone DPP2022, originally planned to take place in June 2021, to 17 – 20 May 2022. The symposium will be held in Rotterdam (venue “De Doelen”).

Over the past period it became clear that DPP2022 could not be organised according to the original plan and in line with expectations of all parties involved. The difficult decision was taken after careful consideration of alternative scenarios and (on-line) formats for the symposium and after consultation of the international steering committee of DPP.

We intend to organize DPP in 2022 as a live event in the format that was originally planned. In this way we aim to have a high quality scientific event in line with expectations of all participants and sponsors.

Further information on DPP in 2022 will be communicated via the website, social media and other communication channels. We look forward to meet you there.

The organising committee of DPP2022,

Alfons Jansman,
Paul Bikker,
Sonja de Vries,
Walter Gerrits
