The 12th International Equine Colic Research Symposium, hosted by the AAEP Foundation, will be held July 18-20, 2017, in Lexington, Kentucky, immediately following the AAEP’s Focus on Colic and Focus on Dentistry meetings, July 16-18.
The symposium, held every three years and alternating between Europe and North America, is designed to bring together leading researchers, practitioners, residents and graduate students to share knowledge about equine colic, the leading cause of premature death in horses.
The format will be similar to previous Colic Research Symposia. Twelve-minute oral presentations followed by three minutes for questions and discussion will take place in sessions throughout the 2 ½ days of the meeting. Poster session receptions will be hosted on the evenings of July 18 and 19 and will expand beyond the oral presentations by giving attendees the opportunity to review and discuss with poster presenters.
The registration fee for the Symposium is $225. If you are a symposium speaker, your fee is $149, and if you are a graduate student or a resident, the fee is $50. Attendees are eligible for 17 CE hours.
