AAVLD Diagnostic Pathology Slide Seminar

Saturday, October 24, 2015, Providence, Rhode Island 3:30-6:00 pm


Submission Deadline: Is now full. Thank you for your support!


Anatomic and clinical pathologists are invited to submit cases for the Diagnostic Pathology

Slide Seminar at the 2015 AAVLD meeting. Necropsy, surgical pathology, or cytology cases

which are challenging or emerging disease entities are solicited. Graduate students and

residents are encouraged to present. Presentations are 5 minutes in length, with another 3 minutes for discussion.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically to Dr. R. Bildfell by July 30, 2015. 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. Examples are available via the slide

session abstracts posted on the AAVLD home page.


Presenters of accepted abstracts must supply a set of 60 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. The slide materials should be submitted to Dr. Francisco Carvallo by September 15, 2015 to allow for distribution and review of slides by attendees before the

meeting. Presenters are entitled to a set of slides at no charge. Sponsoring laboratories of

presenters are also entitled to a set of slides. 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


To reduce the chances of delays or file incompatibility, presenters will need to provide in

advance, (at least one hour before the beginning of the session) a Power Point file of the presentation as indicated in the Annual meeting web page for oral presentations. A flash drive will be available at the AAVLD meeting front desk. Indicate that your presentation is for the Diagnostic Pathology Slide Seminar. Please label your file with the case number followed by your last and first names (e.g., 8 SMITH Joe). Sending the Power Point files by email several days in advance to the moderators is another possibility (instructions at a later time).
