EAVLD and the Italian Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (SIDiLV) are happy to announce, that the 3rd EAVLD Congress on veterinary diagnostics will be held from 12 to 15 October, 2014, in Pisa, Italy.

The EAVLD Congress on veterinary diagnostics takes place every two years. The first edition was held in 2010 in Lelystad, the Netherlands, and the second in 2012 in Kazimierz Dolny, Poland.

Both editions have shown that there is a need to present and discuss the development and use of veterinary diagnostic tools on a European level. Over the last decade, technological developments have given a huge boost to the possibilities in diagnostics in general, including in the veterinary field. We are living in exciting times and congresses like this are an excellent opportunity to keep up with those developments and to extend your international network.

The 3rd Congress will be organized by SIDiLV and will be held in the Congress Center in Pisa. Pisa is a beautiful historical city located in Tuscany, at 1 hour drive from Florence, and it is known worldwide for its leaning tower.

Due to the positive response to the previous congresses, we are expecting a high interest from veterinary diagnosticians, not only from Europe, but from all over the world. The expected number of participants is to be approximately 300.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Pisa in 2014 !
