A scientific program with eight concurrent streams to choose from
With eight concurrent streams running from Monday 6 May until Thursday 9 May, there are almost 200 scientific sessions to choose from. Delegates are free to attend any session, providing the perfect opportunity to explore a new area of interest. It’s the chance to learn from and talk to international and local experts in your field. Our speakers are selected for their ability to engage an audience, and they’re happy to take your questions.
Streams include small animals, cattle, conservation biology, behaviour, public heath, education, veterinary business, dentistry, acupuncture, industry, unusual pets and avian patients, equine practice, equine research, sheep, camelid and goats, career development, animal welfare and vets in the community.
Joint sessions facilitate dialogue between disciplines and take advantage of diverse expertise, whether its animal welfare and conservation biology, dentistry and unusual pets or small animals and behaviour.
Thursday 9 May is Food Security Day, with sessions designed to address arguably the biggest problem we will face as veterinarians and human beings: how do we feed 10 billion people by 2050 whilst promoting animal welfare and looking after the planet?
The program also promotes lateral thinking, with daily thought-provoking plenaries tackling big issues from antimicrobial resistance to work-life balance.
