How to use the mobile app? Start here. IMPORTANT NOTE: The mobile app is not iPad compatible. The schedule on the mobile app is viewable by date and time. We recommend using the Search & Filter feature within the Schedule for the best user experience. Once you have selected "Schedule" from the main menu of the app, the Search & Filter feature is located in the upper right corner. By selecting the 'magnifying glass' you have the ability to perform a full text search of the content within the Schedule. You also have the option of filtering by a specific session once the filter icon is selected. Using the filter feature will make navigating the schedule much more manageable during your busy conference schedule. Take advantage of selecting your own personalized schedule for the meeting!
ACVP is not printing a full program this year, although a pdf will be available on the website. The schedule-at-a-glance and scientific grid will be distributed as a handout. All three will be available in pdf format on the mobile app.
Mystery Slide Session: Neuropathology
Mystery Slide Session: Wildlife Pathology
Solve the Mystery!
If you are planning to attend the presentation by Dr. Kelly, there are 8 gross and 8 histo images located here. Dr. Kelly will discuss as many of these as time permits during his ACVP presentation. Please notice that the histo images are NOT related to the gross image cases. Please note also that the images have been circulated as PDFs. In order to optimise viewing of these in Acrobat, simply press Ctrl+L when each file opens, and it should appear in full-screen mode.
Delegates who attend this session will be expected to have worked on these cases before the meeting, so that they can participate energetically in the discussion of the questions raised. The session is designed to be of particular benefit to trainees.
If time runs out, after the conference Dr. Kelly will circulate his interpretation of cases that aren't discussed during the session.

Vancouver Convention Centre--West Building
The Vancouver Convention Centre's West building has been awarded LEED Platinum certification (version 4) for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance by the Canada Green Building Council. Coupled with its 2010 Platinum certification for New Construction, the Vancouver Convention Centre is the first double LEED Platinum convention centre in the world.
Platinum is the highest level of LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, and version 4 is the newest version of the rating system, considered “the framework and benchmark for the next generation of green buildings.”
The Vancouver Convention Centre is committed to a sustainable operation with a large focus on waste diversion. Based on the three fundamental principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle, the program is facility-wide and includes both front-of-house and back-of-house operations. Recycling bins are placed throughout the facility to encourage delegates to recycle all materials including organics, paper products, plastics, glass and metals.
