To host professionals in the swine industry from around the world is such a great honour, and it is even more meaningful to us as IPVS 2012 Korea (10 - 13 June 2012) is the very first congress to be held in Asia after the successful IPVS 1994 in Thailand.
With high expectations of welcoming many overseas colleagues to Korea, let me introduce some important information and the latest news on IPVS 2012.
Online registration is now open for attendees participating in the IPVS 2012.
Both ‘Early Bird Reservation’ and ‘Regular Reservation’ are available via the official website - http://www.ipvs2012.kr
As a large attendance is expected, you are advised to take advantage of the Early Bird Registration, which will help you save time and benefit from a lower registration fee.
Early Bird Registration deadline is February 28, 2012 and Regular Registration deadline is April 30, 2012.
Abstracts: Now open for submission
To hold the IPVS 2012 successfully, the Scientific Committee is soliciting abstracts for Oral and Poster sessions.
As you are aware, no other event in the world brings together the swine industries in one place like IPVS. So, it means the call for abstracts will be a great chance to share the most up-to-date research works, trends of the various related industries, and interesting cases from all over the world.
In addition, the travel awards will be given to some authors of qualified papers who will present at the Oral Session or Poster Session.
