Invitation to WAAVP 2019

Conference welcome message from

Welcome to the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP)

As the Chair of the Local Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to Madison July 7-11, 2019 for the 27th Conference of the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP). The theme of the Conference is “Sifting and
Winnowing the Evidence in Veterinary Parasitology”, which speaks to the truth that we cannot for a moment believe that knowledge has reached its final goal.

The Local Organizing Committee and the Scientific Committee are busy organizing the venue, plenary lectures by leading authorities in our discipline as well as keynote addresses on topics of interest to all parasitologists. We will be soliciting abstracts for oral and poster presentations across the myriad of topics of interest to veterinary parasitologists.

The conference will be held at the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Monona Terrace, a stunning multi-level structure in the heart of downtown Madison on the shore of Lake Monona. The Monona Terrace has the distinction of being one of the first US convention centers to be LEED Gold Certified. All conference hotels are within a very short walking distance of the Monona Terrace. Adjacent to the Conference Center are pedestrian-friendly walkways and biking/hiking trails that wind alongside Lake Monona and throughout Madison.

Come early, stay after the meeting to enjoy the state that invented summertime fun!
