ONLINE ABStract submission – closed

The organizing committee of the IOHC 2015 invites submission of abstracts for the 3rd International One Health Congress 2015 to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from 15-18 March 2015

Abstracts submission is now closed.

Late breaker abstract submissions will be open from 1 December 2014 until 1 of February 2015. Late breaker abstracts present data of unquestioned immediate significance, gathered after the regular abstract submission deadline has closed. Data analyzed after the regular submission deadline should not be submitted as late breaker research if the data do not meet a high scientific threshold. Late breaker abstracts will be accepted to be presented orally or as posters at the conference.

Guidelines for abstracts

Deadline for submission is 1 November 2014. Late breaker abstracts may be submitted until 1 February 2015. You will be informed about the decision after 15 December 2014.
