69thAVTRW Annual Conference

2–3 September 2015
Royal Veterinary College

The 2015 AVTRW Conference will be held at the Camden campus of the Royal Veterinary College from 2-3rd September 2015.

The conference is following a revised format from previous years. While we welcome all those engaged in veterinary research and teaching, there is now an emphasis on those at an early stage of their careers. The aim is to provide an opportunity for the younger generation of veterinary researchers to present their work to their peers in a friendly and constructive environment.

The meeting will be held over two days at the Royal Veterinary College. In addition to three key note lectures and a career development session involving the major UK research funders, we invite abstract submissions on any aspect of veterinary research and teaching for consideration as oral or poster presentations.

Oral presentations will be selected on merit, although preference will be given to final year PhD students or early career post-docs. Second year PhD students are encouraged to submit poster presentations, with first year PhD students encouraged to attend but not necessarily present their work. The two best oral presentations have the option of publication together with the meeting summary in our official journal, Research in Veterinary Science.

We have made efforts to make this meeting affordable, with registration fees of only £20 for members and £50 for non-members, with the option of joining our organisation for £26.

We look forward to seeing you in London!
