The 2024 World Veterinary Association conference is being convened under the theme of:

‘Resilience in the face of adversity’

Abstracts will be accepted from 10 July 2023 until 31 October 2023.

You are hereby invited to submit abstracts to be considered for selection for the final programme at the 39th World Veterinary Association Congress. You have the option to submit an abstract either for oral or poster presentation. Both types of presentation will have equal status, but including a poster session allows us to accommodate more presenters. Depending on the number of abstracts received, the programme committee may have to select some presentations to be done in the poster session. Specifications for the posters will be supplied to those candidates who are allocated a poster presentation. A maximum of two abstracts per presenter will be accepted.
