Scientific Programme

The Scientific Programme will be designed by the Scientific Programme Committee, to feature the best international speakers and a wide programme of subject areas across the spectrum of Veterinary Parasitology in plenary and parallel session formats, as well as poster presentations.

We will offer both oral and poster presentation opportunities for submitted papers, in addition to invited speaker slots.

We also welcome a range of other sessions such as workshops sessions, special “Hot Topic” presentations, Industrial Symposia, panel debates, and satellite meetings or sessions hosted by related organisations and societies. There is sufficient meeting space within the venue to accommodate a wide range of smaller meetings and sessions, as well as nearby hotels should any societies wish to hold private meetings off-site.
