Posters guided tours

During the Dubrovnik meeting, eight posters guided tours will be organised, two each for Genetic, Nutrition, Horse and Health and Welfare Study Commissions. Each tour will be planned for a group of maximum 10 people. Posters are located according to disciplines in clusters of 11 and there will be a note board for each such group. Participants are simply asked to write their names on the board of their favourite discipline group. The posters guided tours will be advertised by the specific Study Commissions during the previous scientific sessions. Participants will have to write their names on the prepared board.
