Dear colleagues,

bild2.jpgOur next annual meeting will take place September 9-11th in Toulouse, France. Some preliminary information about this splendid historic city can be found in our website (and on the tourist information center : . Itwill be updated within the next days with a link to the website of the congress and the preliminary programme. The 2010 meeting will be organized by the ESVIM.

As with previous meetings, there will be a whole pre-congress Continuing Education day (Wednesday 8th) especially aimed at residents and trainees but we are sure that many more people will be attracted by the topics. This pre-congress day will be organized at  Veterinary school of Toulouse.

Main sessions will be addressed in the main and parallel sessions with ESVIM during the next two days at Palais des Congrès Pierre Baudis  near the city centre close to a nice Japanese garden.

Toulouse is a very nice and old “pink” city, located between two seas and montains, where you can spend some time just walking in the street and looking at churches, palaces and simple houses from the XVI th century built with the money of the famous blue color, the pastel . You will also find many cafés with terraces and  enjoy excellent dinner with good wine and maybe “cassoulet”, one of the special foods of this region.

We are looking forward to welcoming all of you in Toulouse!

On behalf of the local organizing committee

Cathy Trumel and Jean-Pierre Braun
