Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

We have great pleasure in inviting you to the 25th International Conference of the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology in Liverpool, United Kingdom, from 16-20 August, 2015. WAAVP 2015 will bring together parasitologists from around the world to present and discuss the latest advances in their research as well as important issues relevant to veterinary parasitology. Our discipline embraces a broad and growing field of applied parasitology and WAAVP 2015 will provide a Congress which showcases the best in veterinary parasitology activity worldwide. The theme for the 2015 Conference is 'looking to the future'. The scientific programme has been designed to bring together leading scientists who use cutting edge technologies, including specialists in parasiticide resistance, novel diagnostic methodology, and modelling and climate change, among many other topics; to inform, excite and inspire veterinary parasitologists from the newest PhD recruit to the most ancient of professors. The Conference will open with a plenary lecture delivered by Lord Robert May, famous for his work on schistosomiaisis and the development of mathematical models for disease transmission, immunisation and herd immunity.

The city of Liverpool is delighted to be hosting the 25th International Conference of the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology, 16th - 20th August 2015. The conference will be held in the landmark Arena Convention Centre located next to the River Mersey and just a few minutes' walk from central Liverpool with its hotels, cafés, designer shops, art galleries, museums and of course the Cavern Club. Liverpool is a vibrant, friendly city. It has world famous football teams (Liverpool and Everton), a dynamic arts culture and is probably best known as the home of the Beatles.
