Submissions Are Invited For Triennial International Equine Colic Research Symposium In Edinburgh

1 year ago

18th May, 2023 17h10


The 14th International Equine Colic Research Symposium will be held on 10-12 July 2024 in Edinburgh and clinicians and scientists are being invited to submit abstracts for presentation.

The prestigious event is held every four years and hosted alternately by BEVA and the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). It presents a unique opportunity for equine vets to absorb and digest the latest knowledge, clinical practice and scientific advances in the treatment and prevention of colic, from the world’s leading international equine gastroenterology experts.

Held over 2.5 days, the symposium comprises numerous 12-minute oral presentations on a breadth of topics including surgical techniques, treatment, parasitology, gastric ulceration, endotoxemia, pharmacology of intestinal motility, colic complications, epidemiology, physiology of digestion, the intestinal microbiome and metabolomics. Each session will be followed by three minutes for questions and discussion. Poster sessions on the first two days will cover ground beyond the oral presentations and delegates will be able to review and discuss the work with presenters. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network with other equine vets, researchers and professionals.

Clinicians and scientists have until 1 February 2024 to submit abstracts of recent work that they wish to present at this meeting. The scientific committee will consider abstracts on all aspects of equine gastroenterology, including basic science research and reports of clinical cases or novel approaches to treatment. The abstract submission form can be found here.

Tickets cost £475 (with a concessionary rate of £235 for post graduate students and interns) and includes a drinks reception on both 10th & 11th, an evening buffet and Ceilidh on 11th and lunch on 11th & 12th. Further information and booking details can be found here.
