Dear colleagues, friends and participants,
We are pleased to invite you to the joint meeting of the the 5th International Vet-Istanbul Group Congress and 8th International Scientific Meeting “DAYS OF VETERINARY MEDICINE 2018” which will be held in Ohrid, R. of Macedonia, from 23th to 27th September, 2018. Ohrid is a small touristic city situated on the hilly shores of Lake Ohrid in the southwest of Republic of Macedonia with most profound cultural history of human kind.
This year, we’ll be honored to host both meetings, aiming to encourage scientific and academic cooperation among researchers and Veterinary Educational Establishments (VEE) partners, by promoting different aspects of veterinary medicine and their value for the public good.
The event is intended to be attractive for all researchers, veterinary practitioners, official veterinarians, professors, PhD and post-doctoral students, offering a great opportunity to discuss the challenges and ongoing issues in the veterinary education and science.
The meeting will retain the usual popular format, including a number of invited plenary lectures, short presentations and poster presentations. The scientific program will comprise a number of professionally delivered presentations, selected by the Committee based on scientific importance and novelty on the following topics: animal health, animal welfare and reproduction, as well as public health and food safety.
We sincerely hope that this will be a unique opportunity for you to present your recent research work and results. Additionally, through the networking events and created intellectual atmosphere you will be able to meet, discuss and exchange ideas with your new and old colleagues in different fields. Briefly, these days will open new horizons and fulfill your work with ideas, friends and enjoyment.
We look forward to welcome you in Ohrid this year!
The Organizing Committee,
Joint International Scientific Meeting
