2017 Joint Meeting: North American PRRS Symposium and National Swine Improvement Federation

December 1 - 3, 2017 (Fri-Sun)
Intercontinental Chicago Magnificent Mile
505 N Michigan Ave
Chicago, Illinois

The NA PRRS Symposium is an annual conference for scientists, diagnosticians, practitioners and producers who are interested in porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), the most costly viral disease to ever face a global swine industry. The meeting is further expanded to include emerging and foreign animal diseases, such as Seneca Valley virus (SVV), porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), porcine circovirus-associated disease (PCVAD), African swine fever virus (ASFV), classical swine fever virus (CSFV), and other high-consequence diseases of swine. Scientific topics include disease control, vaccines, pathogenesis, diagnostics, epidemiology and host genetics. Abstracts covering all of these topics/viruses will be accepted. Students and postdocs presenting posters or talks can apply for support through the David A. Benfield travel fellowships.

In 2012, the North American PRRS Symposium (NA PRRS) partnered with the National Swine Improvement Federation (NSIF) Conference to provide a world-class meeting devoted to swine health. Together again for 2017, the two conferences represent a new emphasis on the role of host and viral genetics in swine health and the control of disease.

10th European Symposium of Porcine Health Management (ESPHM)

May 9 - 11, 2018 (Wed-Fri)
Barcelona (Spain)

Organized by IRTA-CReSA, ECPHM and EAPHM

The ESPHM in Barcelona will be the 10th edition of the symposium, representing the complete consolidation of a meeting that started in Copenhagen (Denmark) in 2009 with 220 delegates. Since then, the congress has evolved at all levels, with more than 1,540 delegates in the last edition in Prague (Czech Republic) in 2017. This is an evident proof of the increasing interest that the scientific contents of the ESPHM offers, not only for European veterinarians but also to the international community. Although settled in Europe, the ESPHM aspires to be a source of updated knowledge and know-how in its field for the whole world.

This triennial symposium was established in 2005 and is an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest research, educational programs, and technologies available for disinfection, decontamination, depopulation, and disposal. This year our primary focus will be managing livestock and poultry carcasses in the wake of a natural or man-made disaster. We plan panels on some of the different types of events including hurricanes, wildfires, and ice storms.
