Budapest, Hungary

The AK Congress which is a member of the Wolters Kluwer Group (The Netherlands) organizes the 2nd World Conference on Innovative Animal Nutrition and Feeding (WIANF) on 18th–20th October, 2017 in Budapest, Hungary. The conference is held every two years. Later it will be held in other countries, in other cities in Europe.

The conference aims to present how the latest developments of animal nutrition and related disciplines can be applied in animal nutrition to produce high quality and safe animal derived foods and to ensure production in a sustainable manner. Furthermore the effect of climate change on crop and on the quality of animal derived foods for human consumption will be also discussed, as well as the precision livestock farming and nutrition, and how the adverse effects of climate change can be alleviated by nutrition. Moreover, the recent knowledge on mycotoxins and their impacts on feed and animal origin food quality, the new generation of the feed additives are also included in the program of the conference.

Topics of the conference:

  • Climate change and animal nutrition
  • Mycotoxins
  • Animal nutrition and quality of animal-origin food products
  • New generations of feed additives
  • Animal nutrition and gut health
  • Precision livestock farming and nutrition
  • Free communications (further topics that relate to innovative animal nutrition)

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of veterinarians in Korea, it is my great honor to invite you to the 33rd World Veterinary Congress (WVC Incheon, KOREA 2017) to be held from Aug 27-31 2017 in Incheon, Korea.

We, Korean veterinarians, are putting in lots of efforts with a great passion for developing the veterinary field ranging from animal health care, animal welfare, quarantine, preventing zoonosis, to food safety. This Congress is expected to serve as a hot debating space for vets around the world to address some crucial issues, coming up with solutions.
To this end, we are collaborating with the central and local governments, and related organizations of Korea to make this event substantial.

Incheon has successfully hosted international veterinary events such as OIE Rabies International conference 2011, Global Conference of OIE Reference Centres 2014, among others. Incheon is a global, leading city in vet medicine.

The Korean Veterinary Medical Association as an organizer of the Congress will do its best to ensure an exquisite and satisfactory Congress for all participating vets and professionals.

We are all looking forward to your participation in WVC Incheon, KOREA 2017.

Thank you.

16–19 October 2018 Ninth International Conference on Antimicrobial Agents in Veterinary Medicine (AAVM)

Rome, Italy

This forthcoming conference follows the success of the past eight AAVM held in Helsinki, Ottawa, Orlando, Prague, Tel Aviv, Washington DC, Berlin and Budapest. This conference has emerged as one of the leading meetings in its field, which provides a very intensive program and encourages communication among the attendees.

Infectious diseases are very common in veterinary medicine and antimicrobial agents have a predominant role in veterinary therapeutics both in farm and companion animals. Antimicrobial use is still under the spotlight for the potential of antimicrobial resistance and human health risks. Valid alternatives to these drugs are still not routinely available and the veterinary medicine has to deal with their use and with a more modern and updated approach in the therapy. These aspects and many others, such as, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, PK/PD modelling, antimicrobial resistance, residues, clinical trials, new antimicrobial molecules, etc. will stay in the forefront of the topics of the AAVM programs and will be discussed in depth with the participation of speakers of high repute as well as attendees.

Veterinary use of antimicrobials has been increasingly criticized, especially for the potential of resistance transfer from farm animals to humans. Simultaneously, the ever decreasing introduction of new antimicrobial molecules has also limited the number of useful therapeutic agents. Modern approaches for infection reduction in intensive rearing farms are in progress. New ideas of alternatives and "greener" options in the treatment of infectious diseases are under investigation. What the potentials are will also be addressed in the upcoming AAVM meeting.
