19th Joint Conference of the German, Austrian and Swiss EAFP Branches – 1st announcement

Dear EAFP members and other interested parties, 

We are very pleased to confirm that the 19th Joint Conference of the German, Austrian and Swiss Branches of the European Association of Fish Pathologists (EAFP), will take place from 09 to 11 October 2024 in Ulm, Germany. The conference venue will be the Ulm School of Design (Hochschule für Gestaltung). An excursion is planned for 12 October 2022.

The scientific programme of the meeting has the heading “Fish health in focus”. The event will focus on contributions on diagnosis, pathogens, prophylaxis, and therapy of pathogen-related and non-pathogen-related diseases in edible and ornamental fish and other aquatic animals, fish disease control and animal welfare in aquaculture.

The conference is also intended to specifically promote young scientists who are at the beginning of their careers. For this reason, the best posters and presentations by young scientists will each be awarded the Wilhelm Schäperclaus Promotion Prize, which will be awarded for the 8th time in Ulm. The conference language will be principally German.

The contributions presented at the conference will then be published in a conference volume. The online registration for participants and to submit abstracts for oral and poster contributions is now available on the designed website: www.tiho-hannover.de/eafp2024.
