Welcome to the 3rd Joint AITVM–STVM International Conference
On behalf of the Organizing committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the 3rd joint conference of the AITVM-STVM* entitled:
MEDICINE IN CHALLENGING TIMES:
how should academic and research programs adapt?’
This conference locally hosted by the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD) will be held from Tuesday 21 to Friday 24 May 2024 at the CORUM International Congress Centre in Montpellier, France.
The advancement of the field of tropical veterinary medicine to sustainably support agricultural development is what unites both AITVM-STVM organizations. During the conference, you will be able to exchange and share your experiences and research results in all aspects of tropical veterinary medicine through keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations. It will be a unique opportunity to promote young researchers and network within the international research community in veterinary sciences, particularly linking Southern and Northern countries’ academic and research actors.
Both AITVM and STVM have organized successful meetings for decades and joined forces by organizing their first joint conference in Berlin in 2016, followed by a second meeting in 2018 in Buenos Aires. After a COVID-19 related gap, during which a virtual joint event was held in 2022, we are now pleased to be able to meet in person again in 2024. We are therefore eagerly looking forward to four days of exciting presentations and discussions including the famous AITVM-STVM social event in the charming and vibrant city of Montpellier, close to the Mediterranean Sea.
We hope that you will join us during this special conference! Please save the dates!
