AAVLD Annual Meeting Diagnostic Pathology Slide Seminar
Saturday, October 15, 2016, Greensboro, North Carolina
Submission Deadline: July 30, 2016


Anatomic and clinical pathologists are invited to submit cases for the Diagnostic Pathology Slide Seminar at the 2016 AAVLD meeting. Necropsy, surgical pathology, or cytology cases that presented a diagnostic challenge or represent an emerging disease entity are solicited. Graduate students and residents are encouraged to present.

Presentations are 5 minutes in length, with another 4 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should be submitted electronically to Dr. Francisco Carvallo by July 30, 2016. Cases are reviewed as submitted; case submission will close early if presentation slots (16) are filled.

Style and format: Only one page per abstract please. Please use one inch margins, Times New Roman 11 pt font, center and bold title, center authors (full first name and last name) and affiliations below the title, bold presenter’s name. Previous year’s abstracts are available on the AAVLD annual meeting page for use as an example.

Presenters of accepted abstracts must supply a set of 65 H&E glass slides for necropsy and surgical pathology cases. Cytology cases should consist of as many glass slides as are available and if less than 65 slides then a series of high quality digital images that are representative of the case. Case materialshould be submitted to Dr. Alan T. Loynachan by September 1, 2016 to allow for distribution and review of slides by attendees before the meeting.

Presenters and their sponsoring laboratory will receive a set of slides at no charge. The additional slide sets will be available, on a first come-first serve basis, for a $50 donation to the Pathology travel fund of the AAVLD Foundation. A few slide sets from the 2015 conference are still available for purchase.  Please contact Dr. Francisco Carvallo if you are interested.
