The 78th AVTRW Annual Conference

Highlights of this year's conference include keynote presentations by:
  • Professor Jude Capper
  • Professor Matt Jones
  • Professor Pip Beard
  • Dr. Valentina Busin
Abstract submissions are now open - deadline 17th June 2024

The AVTRW conference is a relaxed and supportive environment offering the ideal opportunity to present research findings (including those of a preliminary nature) as well as facilitating interaction with other researchers.  All submissions are welcome but the AVTRW particularly encourages early career researchers (including undergraduate students, postgraduate students, interns, clinical residents, and lab technicians) to submit their work.

As in previous years, monetary prizes will be awarded for best first-time presentation as judged by the AVTRW committee. This year the presentation prizes are generously sponsored by CVS Group.  

Authors of selected abstracts from this year's conference will have the opportunity be submitted for publication in the official journal of the AVTRW, Research in Veterinary Science, offering an excellent opportunity to have your work published in a peer reviewed journal.

Tickets will be available to purchase soon 
The conference fee will include:
  • Attendance at all conference sessions
  • Refreshments throughout the conference
  • AGM attendance on Wednesday afternoon
There will also be a conference dinner on Thursday night which will be an excellent opportunity to speak to attendees and presenters in a more informal setting.

The conference fee does not include accommodation but attendees can take advantage of the event discount available at the Courtyard Marriott, Keele if booked before the 31st July 2024 - a link to access the discounted rate will be made available when tickets are purchased.

Attendees must be members of AVTRW to attend the conference, as this allows the Association to subsidise the cost for our members.
