BVZS Conference: 9th – 11th November 2018 at Conference Aston, Birmingham

Due to the huge success of the first three-day Meeting at ZSL, London Zoo in 2017, with 270 delegates attending, the British Veterinary Zoological Society will be holding its second annual 3 day conference in November 2018.  We received great feedback about the separate lecture streams which we will be continuing; with Friday being a full day of zoo health and wildlife/exotic pet nursing; Saturday will be half a day of zoo health and half a day of exotic pet health, and the second stream will be a full day of wildlife presentations; Sunday will be a full day of exotic pet health presentations, and the second stream will be aimed at students and recent graduates with presentations on career opportunities and also a basic session on dealing with exotics seen in practice .  Talk and poster submissions are welcome on all aspects of nursing, exotic pet, wildlife and zoo animal health. This year we are asking that abstracts are submitted at the same time, along with the titles.  The deadline to submit this is Monday 25th June 2018 and submission guidelines can be found below.

We look forward to welcoming you at the conference which will include:

The theme of our Wildlife Health Day this year will be ‘Anthropogenic impacts on ecosystem health’. We have already secured keynote lectures: Paul Jepson from the UK Cetacean Strandings Investigation Programme (ZSL) will speak on anthropogenic threats to killer whales and other marine mammals, and Ruth Cromie (WWT) will reflect on the multidisciplinary skills needed for resolving threats to ecosystem health, using lead poisoning as a case study.
Talk and poster submissions for this stream are welcome on all aspects of wildlife health: although those with an anthropogenic theme would be especially welcome, talks focusing on other areas will be considered for other themed sessions during the Wildlife Health day.

Please submit your talk or poster title, and abstract via email to Sarah Pellett by Monday 25th June 2018.  Guidelines for abstracts can be found here and poster guidelines here.
The Meetings Committee will be reviewing submitted talk/poster titles and abstracts, and speakers will be informed if their talk has been selected for the programme by Monday 9th July 2018. Biographies for accepted talks and posters will be due in by Monday 30th July 2018.  Guidelines can be found for speakers here and poster presenters here.
