Call for Abstracts

45th Annual Veterinary Orthopedic Society Conference
March 10-17, 2018 at Snowmass Village, Colorado

We invite practitioners, academicians, and researchers interested in large animal, small animal, and exotic species, to submit abstracts of novel studies in practical and scientific topics related to veterinary orthopedics and traumatology. Preference will be given to abstracts that have clinical relevance.  Papers addressing results of controlled retrospective and prospective clinical studies are strongly encouraged. Clinician investigators should also consider submitting innovative surgical techniques, or case reports describing unusual or difficult cases as these will be reviewed separate from the scientific abstracts. Presentations will be limited to 10 minutes and followed by 5 minutes of discussion.  Posters must fit within the 4’ (height) x 4’ (width) area provided.

Call for papers will open on August 15th 2017 and close on November 1, 2017 for both podium presentations and posters.  See the Abstract Submission website for full details of abstract submission, formatting and regulations.

Submission categories will be:

  • Clinical/Scientific Studies
  • Case reports: a maximum of three novel or interesting cases
