The Petfood Forum 2019 content advisory board is seeking abstracts for noncommercial oral presentations and research posters, due October 15, 2018.
Petfood Forum 2019 is scheduled for April 29-May 1 at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, Missouri, U.S. Please do not submit an abstract, especially for an oral presentation, if you are not sure you will be able to attend Petfood Forum during those dates.
Potential speakers are invited to submit noncommercial abstracts on topics including:
Relevance of topic and the presence of new or innovative information, concepts or research are key to a positive evaluation. No abstract will be considered if it seems commercial or if it has been published or presented prior to Petfood Forum 2019. Abstracts similar in title or content to previously presented material should include significant new information.
Please visit the Petfood Forum abstract submission site and follow the instructions to create a new account and complete the submission forms, using the guidelines on the log-in page and the forms.
Abstracts must be received no later than October 15. After this deadline, the abstract submission system will no longer accept submissions. Any requests for late submissions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
