We would like to inform you that the 10th International Sheep Veterinary Congress (ISVC), that was scheduled to be held in Seville from September 20 to 24 2021 together with the 5th triennial Congress of the ECSRHM will be postponed to September 19 to 23, 2022. As it is known, the ISVC is being organized by the Spanish Society for Sheep and Goat Production (SEOC). The organizing committee has been working hard for several years in order to perform a successful conference at the organizational, content (scientific, cultural and recreational aspects) and attendance (delegates and speakers) levels.
The reason that has led us to make this decision has been the postponement of the World Buiatrics Congress (WBC) 2020-MADRID, to September 26-30, 2021. This Congress is being organized by the ANEMBE Spanish Society and was scheduled to be held this year 2020. The situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the organizers to postpone the conference to 2021. The same happens with IGA (International Goat Association) Congress whose Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 13th International Conference on Goats to September 2021.
As we said before, we would like to have a successful ISVC congress, and as you know, although the WBC is a congress eminently dedicated to cattle, it also has a section dedicated to small ruminants. Further, WBC is an event with which we share not only sponsoring companies (their financial support is essential) but also delegates, speakers and members of the Scientific Committee. For these reasons, after taking into account the opinions of the members of the Organizing and Scientific Committees of the ISVC-Seville, and obtaining the ISVA and ECSRHM approvals, we considered postponing it to 2022 as the best option. If this postponement could cause inconvenience to any delegate, we sincerely apologize on behalf of all the organizers.
Looking forward to meeting all you in September 2022 in Seville!!
We would like to wish the best for you and your families in these moments that we are living.
