First of all we hope that you and your loved ones are all safe and sound in these difficult times and our heart goes out to all affected by this threat.
At this point, nobody knows if the ESVCN Congress 2020 will take place in its usual and traditional format.
However, the Board is determined to find a way, if we can, to share the latest research and knowledge from our members and scientists in the area of veterinary and comparative nutrition. This is the main purpose of our organisation. We, therefore, are looking at another possibility - if the traditional meeting cannot be held – which is to postpone the face-to-face meeting in Portugal to 2021 and holding instead a web-based virtual adapted meeting, enabling the sharing and discussion of latest research. To this effect, we have extended the Abstract Submission Deadline to the 13th April and all abstracts will be reviewed by two members of the Scientific Committee as usual, and an Abstract Booklet will be produced.
For the final decision on how we will manage to fulfil our purpose in 2020 and catch up with all of you, we will be reviewing the situation constantly and inform you at the latest by the end of June.
The ESVCN Board
