34th Annual Meeting of the ESVP &
27th Annual Meeting of the ECVP

September 7th – September 10th, 2016 NEW DATE!
Complesso Belmeloro, via Belmeloro 14, Bologna, Italy



Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the European Society of Veterinary Pathology and the European College of Veterinary Pathologists it gives us great pleasure to welcome you to Bologna for the ESVP/ECVP Meeting 2016 held in Complesso Belmeloro (Bologna, Italy) from September 7 to 10.

As always the meeting provides an ideal venue for the not-so -young and younger generations of veterinary pathologists from all over the World to exchange information and learn from each other as well as improve fellowship and friendship.

The Scientific Programme covers advances on emerging diseases, lymphoma and neuropathology and advices on the reviewing of scientific papers presented in plenary sessions by internationally-recognized speakers. There is also time for your oral and poster presentations in multiple theme-focussed parallel sessions. Furthermore your active contributions will be challenged in the mystery case presentations and participating at workshops planned on selected topics, one of which is planned for the evening and will be presented in a new clinician/pathologist interactive way.

You therefore have a lot of reasons to attend the ESVP/ECVP Bologna Meeting, and a further one is the opportunity to visit Bologna. City of art, culture and commerce, with a streamlined trade-fair organization and a well-known manufacturing and motor tradition, Bologna is famous for it’s almost 40 km of arcades, the longest in the world. Also called “The Learned” for its old University, and “The Fat” for its food tradition, the city has one of the largest and most well-preserved medieval historical centres. Among the symbols of Bologna there is the Neptune Fountain, and the medieval towers, particularly the magnificent Two Towers. A rich heritage of art is housed in the multitude of religious buildings, among which a special mention should be made of the complex of Santo Stefano, and the church of San Domenico with the Saint’s marble tomb by Nicolò dall’Arca and decorated with Michelangelo’s sculptures.

Alma Mater Studiorum is the oldest Western University. Its fi rst prestigious seat was the Archiginnasio. Here it is possible to visit the Anatomical Theatre, where practical lessons of cadaver dissection took place in the past. It is not possible to leave Bologna without having visited Palazzo Poggi, seat of the present University and of some of the University Museums, or without having admired the 17th century sundial and the wonderful chapels in the Basilica of San Petronio.

Awaiting to see you in Bologna,
