Dear colleagues and friends,
It is a great pleasure to welcome the 18th ESVCP congress in France, and for the first time in Nantes. Nantes is a beautiful port city, really easy to reach and very pleasant to live in. It is a city of culture and imagination with many architectural and art treasures.
This will be also the first time that ESVCP and ESVONC will have a joint congress. We are hardly working to have a real co-organization with mixed sessions, in part focusing on oncology biomarkers and the spontaneous animal model in clinical pathology and oncology. We hope that there will be a real interaction between clinical pathologists and oncologists as it is really happened in our daily practice.
The meeting will be held between the 20 and the 22th of October 2016 at La Cité Nantes events center. The congress center is ideally located in the heart of the city and really easy to reach by public transport. A pre-congress day (19th of October) will also be organized at the veterinary school of Nantes as a continuing education program for veterinary clinical pathologists and oncologists.
Apart from high quality invited speakers, free communications, clinical cases presentation and poster sessions will also be present. For the third year, a mystery slide session will also be organized. A preliminary program will be available soon as well as all the practical information for the abstract submission and deadline.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Nantes,
Laetitia Jaillardon and Brigitte Siliart
