Event description

Description

The 2018 Joint Symposium of the International Society for Companion Animal Infectious Diseases (ISCAID) and the International Feline Retrovirus Research Symposium (IFRRS) will be held in Portland, Oregon, in the United States. The Symposium will open at 5 pm on Sunday October 30th and close at 1 pm on Wednesday October 3rd, and will be held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Downtown in the heart of Portland on the river, promising an exciting mixture of abstracts and keynote speaker presentations.

The event will begin with a Sunday evening keynote speaker session at 6:15 pm followed by drinks and a light buffet, with an introduction to the poster session. On Monday October 1, two concurrent sessions will run (ISCAID and IFRRS). On Tuesday October 2, there will be a combined ISCAID/IFRRS session together with a clinician day with seminars on important and relevant clinical infectious disease topics for general veterinary practitioners. A symposium dinner will also be held on Tuesday, which is optional for attendees. On Wednesday October 3, there will be a half-day session on hot topics in companion animal infectious diseases, followed by a provision of a packed lunch and departures at 12:30 pm. The entire program will be posted on the ISCAID website including an updated abstract program.

Portland is easily accessed by flying into Portland International Airport, which is only 9 miles from downtown and has been named one of the best airports in the United States. A light rail connection makes access to downtown inexpensive ($2.50) and easy. Portland is also less than 2 hours drive from beautiful coastal Oregon.

We want to acknowledge our industry sponsors for the event. Without them this event would not be possible!

Where should I stay for the symposium?
The ISCAID symposium is being held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Downtown, for which special room rates have been negotiated both for the nights of the symposium and for additional nights immediately before or after the symposium, should delegates wish to extend their stay. The hotel is in downtown Portland, and is well placed for visiting the city and nearby coastal Oregon. The negotiated rate is $229/night for single and double occupancy, with $25 per person for triple and quadruple occupancy, which includes breakfast. These rates are subject to a 13.3% hotel tax and 2% TID of Oregon tax. Rooms are available on a first come, first serve basis only, so please book early.

Will refunds for registration be permitted?
