Submit By Aug 15: AASV Research Topics Abstract

Plans are underway for the 55th annual meeting of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) to take place February 24-27, 2024 in Nashville, Tennessee. As part of the meeting, there will be an oral and a poster session highlighting research projects related to swine health and production (virology, bacteriology, parasitology, environment, food safety, odor, welfare, etc.). Abstracts are now being accepted to be considered for presentation during the Research Topics session, which will be held Sunday, February 25. Submissions are due August 15 (firm deadline).

Those interested in making a 15-minute-oral or poster presentation of previously unpublished, applied research must submit 2 copies of a one-sided, one-page abstract. One copy (for review purposes) should contain the abstract title but must omit the authors’ names and affiliations. Use 1″ margins and 12 pt Times New Roman font. Tables and figures may be included but must fit on the page with the text. The submitted abstracts will be used for review purposes only.

Submit abstracts to no later than August 15, 2023. Provide the presenting author’s name, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address within the email message accompanying each submission.

Fourteen submissions will be selected for oral presentation on Sunday morning, February 25. Those not selected for oral presentation will be considered for poster presentation. All submitting authors will be notified of the selection results in September. Authors of abstracts selected for oral or poster presentation must provide a paper, reformatted for publication in the conference proceedings, by November 15, 2023.

PLEASE NOTE: Participation in the Research Topics oral and poster sessions is at the presenter’s expense. No speaking stipend or travel expense reimbursement is paid by the AASV. The presenting author is required to register for and attend the meeting in person to make the presentation. Recorded/virtual presentations will not be accepted unless the meeting converts to an entirely virtual event.

It is not necessary to be an AASV member to submit an abstract for consideration or participate if selected. Nonmember participants may register for the meeting at the AASV regular member rate. Qualifying full-time graduate students must join AASV if they wish to register at the lower graduate student member rate.
