The Veterinary Orthopedic Society has issued a call for papers for its 32nd Annual Conference, to be held in Aspen, Colo., March 5-12. The society invites practitioners, academicians, and researchers interested in large animals, small animals, and exotic species to submit abstracts of practical and scientific topics related to veterinary orthopedics. Abstracts must be received electronically by Nov. 1, 2004.
All papers should be clinically oriented, and the presentation should emphasize clinical applicability. The society encourages papers addressing results of controlled retrospective and prospective clinical studies, papers on innovative surgical techniques, and case reports describing unusual or difficult cases. In general, presentations will be 10 minutes long, followed by five minutes of discussion.
