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 Liverpool Arena and Conference Centre in Liverpool.
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 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.
