The Ninth International Colic Research Symposium, "The Olympics of colic research," will be hosted by the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) from 15th - 18th June 2008 at the new Liverpool Arena and Conference Centre in Liverpool, England.
The format of the meeting will be a mixture of 15 minute oral presentations and two poster sessions. This is a research-focussed meeting and is likely to include sessions on all aspects of equine gastroenterology including epidemiology, parasitology, intestinal motility, endotoxaemia, clinical practice and post-operative survival. A full program will be available at the end of February.
The meeting will coincide with publication of a Colic Special Issue of Equine Veterinary Journal. containing full papers of some of the studies presented at the meeting.
The waterfront venue for the Symposium, the Liverpool Arena and Conference Centre, has excellent conference facilities, good access to local hotels and is easily accessible by road, rail and from Liverpool and Manchester International Airports.
The International Colic Research Symposium is noted for providing both a high-quality scientific programme and a convivial ambience. Both will be recreated in Liverpool in 2008 at this unique meeting.
