Clinical papers & posters


Clinical Papers

Abstracts to be presented at the combined ANZCVS / EVA session on Monday 20 July 2020 are now being accepted. Please note that accepted abstracts will be printed in The Australian Equine Veterinarian and The Proceedings of the ANZCVS Science Week. The abstracts can be recent research, clinical projects, or alternatively a case series or report involving any aspect of equine veterinary science.

Submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by a panel appointed by both EVA and the equine chapter of the ANZCVS, and if accepted, the author will be invited to present their abstract on Monday 20 July 2020 at the Pullman Melbourne Albert Park on Day One of the Bain Fallon Memorial Lectures 2020. A submission form should accompany every abstract, and multiple abstracts can be submitted.

The presentation time is 12 minutes with an additional three (3) minutes for questions and discussion. The purpose of the clinical papers is to inform attendees of clinical research or case experience that they can use in their own practices, for the benefit of clients and their horses. You will be notified by email if your abstract has been accepted. A number of prizes will be on offer by both organisations for the best presentations. A presenter can only receive one EVA prize, although they can receive an EVA prize and the ANZCVS prize.

Abstracts submission date is Friday 24 April 2020. Submissions to

Please fill out the Abstract Submission Form and submit along with your abstract.

Poster Session

Have you or a group of your colleagues considered presenting a poster at the Bain Fallon Memorial Lectures in July this year? Maybe you have applied to present a Research or Clinical Paper at Bain Fallon; perhaps your abstract application may not be successful this year. Then please consider the option of presenting a poster at Bain Fallon. The poster session is an excellent opportunity for you to gain recognition for your research or clinical work and for you to build your professional profile. In addition, there are a number three prestigious prizes available for posters, each with a cash component of $500.

Your poster may cover any topic in equine veterinary science. Posters must be the original work of the veterinarian and can be research or clinical case reports or a case series. Please note that there are different prizes available depending on the category your poster is eligible for. See the list of individual prizes for more information.

At least one of the authors of the poster must be present to meet with the judging panel at the poster judging session during lunch on Monday 20 July 2020 at the Bain Fallon Conference, Pullman Melbourne Albert Park.  Please also note that the top 10 posters will then be invited to present their poster for three (3) minutes following the clinical paper session from 5.30pm – 6.30pm.
