Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,
Time is flying, spring is coming, but the coronavirus and COVID-19 are still dominating our social live in entire Europe. Nevertheless, we maintain hope and look already forward to a carefree summer in which we can meet again. Despite all obstacles, we will organize the 33rd EAVA Congress from July 28 to July 31, 2021, in whatever format. In the most favorable scenario this will be on site in Ghent, in the most unfavorable scenario completely virtual, or in hybrid form. We will wait as long as possible to make the final decision, which we will announce at the end of April.
In the meantime, we cordially invite and encourage you to submit your abstracts before April 15, 2021. This year’s edition will have a special focus on translational and interdisciplinary anatomy, which will be supported by two keynote lectures and a special session on this topic. Abstracts covering all fields of Veterinary Anatomy are welcome, but we especially encourage contributions within this theme.
Abstracts should be submitted through the standardized template which can be found on our website. The deadline for abstract submission is April 15, 2021, and the organizing committee aims at delivering the decision of acceptance to the authors not later than May 20. All accepted abstracts will be published in our journal “Anatomia, Histologia, Embryologia” in a supplement which will be hopefully available at the time of the congress.
Please, visit our website http://EAVA2020.ugent.be regularly because you can find the most up-to-date information there.
I am really looking forward to meeting you all again. And remember: stay positive, but test negative.
Best regards, on behalf of the organizing committee,
Prof. dr. Wim Van den Broeck.
