How to use the mobile app? Start here. IMPORTANT NOTE: 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.
Policies for Photography, Audiovisual Recording, and Social Media
The members of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) and the American Society for Veterinary Clinical Pathology (ASVCP) are committed to the advancement and open sharing of scientific knowledge and also recognize a fundamental responsibility to prevent the unauthorized use of proprietary, preliminary, or unpublished information shared by speakers. To promote open scientific communication while respecting the rights and intellectual property of presenters and their institutions, the ACVP Council has adopted the following policies regarding the use of photography and social media during the ACVP and ASVCP Concurrent Annual Meeting on November 4-8, 2017:
Flash photography is prohibited. Non-flash photographs may be taken during oral or poster presentations for non-commercial personal use only, unless prohibited by the speaker, and may NOT be published in any form. Distraction to presenters and audience members must be minimized when capturing images.
Audio or video recording of sessions by means of any device (e.g. cell phones/PDAs, laptops, cameras, etc.) is prohibited.
Attendees may post information from sessions on social media in a professional manner but are expected to respect the wishes of presenters. Information or images from presentation slides marked “DO NOT POST” may NOT be shared on social media in any form. Information on posters may NOT be posted to social media unless permission is granted by the corresponding author/presenter.
