The Organizing Committee invites wildlife veterinarians and scientists, who are interested in sharing their work with the participants of the Symposium, to submit their work in abstract form.
Please follow the instructions given below and make sure that each field in the abstract form has been completed.
Abstract submission deadline is Monday, August 25th 2023.
Submitted research abstracts can be considered for oral presentations in the Symposium and for poster presentations.
Oral presentations, on one of the main Symposium topics, are short 12-minute talks, followed by 3-minute questions and answers.
Posters will be organized by topic; opportunities for presenters to discuss their work with interested participants will be provided by designated poster sessions in the Symposium schedule. Final versions of accepted papers must be uploaded to the Symposium website for inclusion in the Symposium Proceedings.
