About the event

The spring meeting on the Wednesday of the BSAVA Congress week traditionally covers "what is new and hot" and in 2014 we have a great line-up including Professor Gerhard Oechtering from the University of Leipzig, Laurent Findji from the VRCC, Stephen Baines from Willows Referrals and Nick Bacon from the University of Florida. 

With a great variety of topics including some personal experiences from the speakers and an update on the AVSTS Research Cooperative we hope to see you there.
