The World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology is held every 4 years, and is the largest international meeting of the discipline. We invite our global colleagues in veterinary dermatology, as well as related disciplines such as microbiology, immunology, internal medicine, parasitology, oncology, and pathology to submit abstracts for presentation at the Congress in Vancouver, July 25 - 28, 2012.
Abstracts may be submitted under either of two categories: Supporting Original Studies (high-impact studies of broad general interest in veterinary dermatology; require an abstract, oral presentation at Congress, and manuscript; full travel, accommodation and registration costs are paid by the Congress) and Free Communications/Posters (studies of more limited scope or narrower interest; require only an abstract; oral or poster presentation at Congress; no travel/accommodation or registration costs paid). All abstracts will be reviewed in a competitive manner by the Programme Committee. Abstracts related to one of the six plenary themes (Immunology, Allergy, Infectious and Parasitic Diseases, Skin Oncology, Skin Biology, Therapy) are preferred for the Supporting Original Studies.
The absolute deadline for receipt of abstracts by the Programme Committee is November 1, 2011 for the Supporting Original Studies and December 15, 2011 for the Free Communications and Posters. Abstracts must be submitted via internet through the web page: www.vetdermvancouver.com. Complete information on abstract preparation and a model of the required abstract format are enclosed for your information. This information, along with additional information about the Congress itself, will be also available online from the Congress web site at:
We would appreciate it if you would make this announcement and instructions available to any interested persons.
