Feb. 8-9, 2018 - Campus Merelbeke, U. Ghent, Belgium

The First European Practitioners Symposium on Equine Reproduction (ESER) is a two-day course designed for practicing equine veterinarians. We have invited 12 experts from Europe and North America who will cover topics in both mare and stallions. The symposium offers cutting-edge lectures on the latest information and practical tips to equine practitioners.

The meeting is limited to 220 participants. The meeting is sold out. See who is attending the meeting (Who is going). Mark your calendar and see you in Ghent in February 2018!

This ESER symposium is organized to generate financial support for the International Symposium on Equine Reproductions (ISER 2018), a more research-oriented conference on equine reproduction organized every four years. A fixed amount of the registration fee will be donated to the ISER 2018 and used to provide travel grants for young, promising scientist that would like to attend the ISER 2018. We are very grateful to the many speakers who have generously offered their time to speak at the ESER Symposium. Deadline for submission of abstracts to the ISER-2018 in Cambridge is Feb 1, 2018. For more information go to the ISER 2018 Website.
