Welcome To WAAVP Perth 2013

WAAVP Homepage On behalf of the Australian Society for Parasitology, we have great pleasure in inviting you to the 24th International Conference of the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology in Perth, Western Australia, from 25-29 August, 2013.

WAAVP 2013 will bring together parasitologists from around the world to present and discuss the latest advances in their research as well as important issues relevant to veterinary parasitology. Our discipline embraces a broad and growing field of applied parasitology and WAAVP 2013 will provide the opportunity to look to the future as well as build on the successes over the last 50 years. The Perth Conference will celebrate WAAVP’s 50th Birthday!

Western Australia offers a fresh perspective for conferences with plenty of open space for delegates to think, breathe and connect. The Conference Venue is set on the banks of the spectacular Swan River; the State’s sparkling capital Perth is one of the nation’s fastest growing urban centres, offering cultural diversity and sophistication combined with a relaxed lifestyle and friendly atmosphere.

Beyond Perth you can discover the breathtaking and unparalleled beauty of our natural attractions in the regional areas of Western Australia. Swim with the dolphins in Rockingham, or with the giant whale sharks of the Coral Coast; explore the red-earth country of the North West and the Magnificent colours of Gibb River Road and Lake Argyle; or indulge in Margaret River’s fine wines, boutique breweries and regional gourmet delights – it is your choice!
