2018 Call for Abstracts
Deadline: Monday, July 2 at 11:59 pm PST
The submission system will open on May 15, 2018.
Focused Scientific Sessions
The Focused Scientific Sessions (FSS) provide an opportunity for individuals to present novel findings at the ACVP and ASVCP Annual Meeting in six categories. These categories are designed to allow for abstract submission in broad areas that represent the diversity in Veterinary Pathology. They are listed below:
Industrial and Toxicologic Pathology
Abstracts in the Clinical Pathology session are focused on clinical pathology diagnostics and clinicopathologic aspects of natural or experimental disease.
Abstracts in the Diagnostic Pathology session are intended to be an opportunity for presentation of brief pathology case reports. Abstracts submitted to this category are typically reports of classic disease entities, common diseases in an unusual species, or an atypical disease in any one animal. This session also includes brief descriptions of new/contemporary diagnostic tests/methods. The emphasis in this category should be on descriptive, not mechanistic, pathology.
Abstracts in the Education session are focused on information related to education in veterinary pathology, veterinary medicine or training tools utilized in education in general.
Abstracts in the Experimental Disease session include in-depth investigations into the pathophysiology or pathogenesis of experimentally induced disease processes in relevant animal species or in animal models. Submission in this category may include mechanistic pathology of experimentally induced diseases or descriptions of new animal model systems and the comparative pathology of those models.
Industrial and Toxicologic Pathology
Abstracts in the Industrial and Toxicologic Pathology session include descriptions and in-depth investigations into the pathophysiology and pathogenesis of toxins, chemicals, environmental pollutants and xenobiotic agents. Topics can include investigative studies, case reports, regulatory study summaries or studies with laboratory animal models that are relevant to industrial pathology.
Abstracts in the Natural Disease session include in-depth investigations into the pathology or pathophysiology of naturally occurring or emerging disease processes, detailed case series of a particular process, or naturally occurring disease spectrum in a given population. This session also includes in-depth descriptions of new/contemporary diagnostic testing that would include details on method, validation and optimization in a case series and thus not be suitable for the brief format of the Diagnostic Pathology session.
ACVP Veterinary Student Poster Abstracts
Veterinary students are invited to submit a poster abstract for presentation at the 2018 Annual Meeting. The deadline for submissions is August 31, 2018. A link to the submission system will be available here on July 31, 2018.
ACVP offers two Veterinary Student Poster Awards at the Annual Meeting for veterinary students that require submission of an abstract due August 31 and a quality poster presentation of pathology-related research or case work material at the Annual Meeting. The veterinary student must be the FIRST author on the abstract, and a pathologist mentor must be included as a co-author. All names and affiliations must be included. Abstracts just present ORIGINAL findings or a NOVEL case that has not been previously reported. All abstracts must have clear results, and abstracts with "results pending" will not be accepted. Only one abstract per student will be accepted.
