ACPV Sponsored Workshop

March 14 to 17th, 2021



Submit a Title

 Deadline: November 2nd 2020


Message from the 70th WPDC Program Chair

It’s time to start thinking about the 70th WPDC! The 2021 WPDC will be held online on March 15-17th. The world has changed in so many ways in the last few months and I am sure COVID-19 has also changed the way you conduct your work. Since COVID-19 has been dominating the poultry headlines, the theme of the 70th WPDC will be “how current events will shape the future of the poultry industry”. We will hear from industry leaders,  and gain insight into how the poultry industry has been impacted by COVID-19.

Emphasis for selecting abstracts will be placed on clinical poultry medicine, avian infectious disease research and diagnostics. For this meeting we are requesting titles and a 150-word summary. Oral and poster presentations will be selected from the submission pool and all selected presentations will be included in the 70th annual WPDC Proceedings. The WPDC committee would like to invite all interested presenters including poultry clinicians, diagnosticians, graduate students, poultry residents and veterinary students to submit summaries that may be applicable for this meeting. Additionally, detailed instructions for the complete paper submission will be provided to those whose titles are accepted. With great enthusiasm, as Program Chair, I invite you to the 70th WPDC and a look forward to seeing you next year!

Warm Regards,
WPDC Program Chair,
Dr. Lynn Bagley
