The first Joint AITVM - STVM Conference

September 4-8, 2016, the first Joint International Conference of the Association of Institutions for Tropical Veterinary Medicine (AITVM) and the Society of Tropical Veterinary Medicine (STVM) at the Humboldt Universitaet zu Berlin brings together animal health and production experts, senior and junior career researchers and students from the North and the South, the East and the West.
