Call for Submissions – Industrial Partners

The American Association of Swine Veterinarians invites submissions for the Industrial Partners portion of the 44th AASV Annual Meeting, to be held March 2-5, 2013, in San Diego, California.  This is an opportunity for commercial companies to make brief presentations of a technical, educational nature to members of the AASV.

As in the past, the oral sessions will consist of a series of 15-minute presentations scheduled from 1:00 to 5:00 pm on Sunday afternoon, March 3. A poster session will take place on the same day. Poster authors will be required to be stationed with their poster from 12:00 noon until 1:00 pm, and the posters will remain on display throughout the afternoon and the following day for viewing by meeting attendees.

Restricted program space necessitates a limit on the number of presentations per company.  Companies that are members of the Journal of Swine Health and Production Industry Support Council may submit two topics for oral presentation. All other companies may submit one topic for oral presentation. Each company may also submit one topic for poster presentation (poster topics may not duplicate oral presentations). All topics must represent information not previously presented at the AASV annual meeting or published in the meeting proceedings.

Topic titles, a brief description of the presentation content, and presenter information (name, address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail address) must be received in the AASV office by October 1, 2012. Please identify whether the submission is intended for oral or poster presentation.  Email submissions to:

Authors will be notified of their acceptance by October 15, 2012, and must submit the paper for publication in the meeting proceedings by November 15, 2012. All presentations – oral and poster - will be published in the proceedings of the meeting. Papers for poster presentations are limited to one page of text plus one table or figure. Papers for oral presentations may be up to five pages in length (including tables and figures), when formatted according to the guidelines provided to authors upon acceptance of their presentation. Companies failing to submit papers in a timely manner will not be eligible for future participation in these sessions.
