About WAAVP and WAAVP 2017
The World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP) was formally established on 16th August, 1963. It is the largest international veterinary parasitology organisation in the world. WAAVP is a non-profit organization for scientists who study the parasites of animals, encompassing helminthology, protozoology and entomology.
WAAVP Conferences have given parasitologists an opportunity to learn about the parasitological perspectives of the host country, and to enjoy the culture!
Malaysia is delighted to be the first country in South East Asia to host the 26th WAAVP conference in the iconic Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre on 4 – 8 Sep 2017, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Truly Asia. This is the result of great team work and effort from the Malaysian Society of the Parasitology & Tropical Medicine (MSPTM) together with Department of Veterinary Services (DVS) and with strong support given by the Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-based Industry, Malaysia (MOA) and Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) of the Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia.
The organising committee for the WAAVP 2017 would like to invite prospective authors to submit abstracts for oral, rapid oral and poster presentations at the Conference. The committee particularly encourages graduate students to participate in the Conference. Abstract submissions will open on 1st July 2016 and close on 31st March 2017.
