On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are happy to invite you to join us in Keystone, Colorado, USA on May 29th through June 1st, 2012 for the 12th International Symposium on Digestive Physiology of Pigs. This event has grown to become the premiere event where discussions focus specifically on various aspects of digestive physiology. We expect to attract more than 300 attendees from Europe, Asia and North and South America.

The first Symposium was held in Shinfield, Reading (UK) in 1979. Subsequently there have been symposia held triennially in France, Denmark, Poland, The Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden, Canada, Denmark and Spain. This is the first time it will be held in the U.S., and the committee is committed to ensuring the Symposium lives up to the very high standard established by our European and Canadian predecessors.

The scientific program will focus on the digestive tract of the pig, emphasizing physiology, immunology and microbiology. Additionally, this Symposium will review the latest advances in the field of digestive physiology of pigs, providing the basis for future research.

We have an impressive roster of invited speakers, representing France, Scotland, Denmark, The Netherlands, Canada and the U.S. An exciting Pre-Conference Symposium will be held during the afternoon of May 29th with the theme of gut chemosensing.

We look forward to seeing you at DPP2012.
