Contributed Oral & Poster Abstract Submission

To ensure presentations are scheduled in the General or Poster Sessions and included in the Conference Proceedings, abstracts should be submitted by August 15, 2018.  Should more oral presentation abstracts be received than will fit the time currently allotted to the General Sessions, the program will be expanded to allow more than one concurrent session, or a speaker will be provided the option for a poster presentation.  After the whole program is finalized, oral presentation speakers selected as part of the Conference will receive a special discount code to register for all General Sessions.  

While 30-minute oral or poster presentations dealing with the Conference theme "Integrating One Health Clinical Practice & Biosecurity into Aquatic Veterinary Education" are acceptable, presentations that deal with the following are encouraged:

·        aquatic veterinary environmental stewardship & medicine;

·        current or future education initiatives to educate & train aquatic veterinarians;

·        useful or interesting clinical techniques and clinical cases in aquatic veterinary medicine; and,

·        issues related to diagnosing, preventing, controlling and eradicating aquatic animal diseases (biosecurity).

Abstract Submission Process & Selection

By submitting an abstract, you agree to have it published in the Proceeding of this conference. Abstracts will be reviewed by the program committee to fit the daily program session schedule. Speakers will be informed of the day and time for their presentation on, in August.

The primary author (speaker) of all abstracts accepted for oral presentations will receive a discount code for registration to the General Session (Friday-Saturday). As we intend to seek AAVSB-RACE approval for oral General Session presentations, speakers will be requested to provide brief biographical information.

Speakers submitting abstracts for oral presentations which we are unable to fit into daily General Session schedules will be given the option to present a poster.

All abstracts must adhere to the following Abstract Format Guidelines.

To ensure inclusion in the General or Poster Sessions, and the Conference Proceedings, all abstracts should e-mailed to 2018-StKitts@wavma.org by August 15, 2018.
