Dear colleagues and friends, It is a great pleasure to welcome the first co-organized ESVCP and ESVONC congress in France, and for the first time in Nantes. Nantes is a beautiful port city, really easy to reach and very pleasant to live in. It is a city of culture and imagination with many architectural and art treasures. France is the country of gastronomy and good wines and Nantes is no exception.
ESVCP and ESVONC scientific committees hardly worked to have a real co-organization with mixed sessions, in part focusing on oncology biomarkers and spontaneous animal models in clinical pathology and oncology. We hope that there will be a real interaction between clinical pathologists and oncologists as it really happens in practice.
The meeting will be held between the 20 and the 22th of October 2016 at La Cité Nantes events center. The congress center is ideally located in the heart of the city and really easy to reach by public transport. A pre-congress day (19th of October) will also be organized as a continuing education program for veterinary clinical pathologists and oncologists.
Apart from high quality invited speakers, free communications, clinical cases presentation and poster sessions will also be present. For the third year, a mystery slide session will also be organized. We really hope that you will enjoy this congress as much as we enjoyed organize it in a real spirit of cooperation.
