The 13th International Equine Colic Research Symposium will be held virtually on the BEVA Congress Virtual Hub. The live programme will take place between 6pm (UK time) and 8:10pm (UK time) from the 4th September to the 7th September. 

During each evening session there will be 10 abstract presentations followed by a short Q&A with the author. Poster presentations will also be on display digitally throughout the Symposium. 

Attendees will have access to all recordings of the sessions and poster presentations for 12 months. 

Those who attend BEVA Congress in person will receive complementary access to the 13th International Equine Colic Research Symposium. Virtual BEVA Congress delegates can choose to add the 13th International Equine Colic Research Symposium to their Congress ticket for just £49. If you do not plan on attending BEVA Congress you can book the Symposium separately by visiting the BEVA website.
