Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of Turkish Veterinary Medical Association and the Congress Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure and honor to invite you to attend the 32nd World Veterinary Congress (WVC) which will be held in İstanbul from September 13 to September 17, 2015

WVCs constitute an important forum and exciting venue for dissemination of advanced scientific knowledge and technological development in most veterinary fields such as animal health and welfare, one health, food hygiene and veterinary education.

In addition, the congress will provide an ideal platform for young and senior scientists and colleagues, animal health industry representatives from across the world to meet and discuss present and emerging problems in the field of veterinary medicine, to learn more about recent advances, likely future developments and potential research avenues and to exchange ideas and experiences in our field- all within an unique environment.

İstanbul, which uniquely spans the two continents of Europe and Asia, acts as a bridge between Western and Eastern Civilizations, is a city that calmly reconciles the traditional with the modern. İstanbul is one of the biggest cities in the world with its history of over 2500 years and wonderful natural scenery. Excellent social facilities and services being in the walking distance to the Congress Venue in the heart of the city, we would like to assure you that this beautiful city, with its spiritual and modern atmosphere, is going to fulfill the expectations and represent a great time for all the Congress participants.

We look forward to welcoming you in İstanbul. We are certain that you will greatly enjoy this major scientific and social event of our profession as well as Turkish culture, cuisine and hospitality.

Congress Chairman
