EAPHM Website

The new EAPHM website will store all the abstracts and, as many as possible, presented keynote lectures, oral presentations and posters. To retrieve this enormous amount of data from all ESPHM symposia, the website makes use of a search system. This search system works on several targets but full word search on title and abstract content is what website visitors will use most. The 1st 150 characters of the title of your abstract and the 1st 250 characters of your abstract text are the target for this search system. Want to make it easy for the visitors to find your paper? Make sure that the title is short and concise and that the 1st sentences of the body text are stating why a visitor should read your paper!

Human transmission of infectious swine diseases are a concern when veterinarians and affiliated people meet from all over the world. Therefore the Local Organizing Committee would like to call upon all participants to the ESPHM:

  • not to wear clothes or shoes to the ESPHM that have been used during farm visits;
  • not to visit pig farms in the days immediate before the ESPHM;
  • not to bring any food, especially food containing pork products, during your travel to the Netherlands;
  • not to visit pig farms during your stay in the Netherlands/Europe;
  • not to wear clothes or shoes which you have worn during the ESPHM to visit pig farms back home;
  • not to visit pig farms back home in the days immediately after your participation of the ESPHM.

Thank you all for your effort to stop the spread of swine infectious diseases.
