International Symposium of Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics (ISVEE) 2018 Chiang Mai, Thailand

The 15th International Symposium of Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics (ISVEE 15) is being held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, on 12 - 16 November 2018. The conference is a global forum for interdisciplinary collaboration and communication among graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, practitioners, junior and senior researchers, as well as policymakers, health, veterinary public health, social science, and animal health economic professionals, to learn and share with a vision of building a better life tomorrow for veterinary epidemiology at the local, regional, and international levels.

EPIC scientists are presenting their research at the conference (funded both as part of EPIC and outwith the project)
