Apply to Speak at the

Annual Talbot Informatics Symposium

Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, Blacksburg, VA

September 14-15, 2024


The Executive Board and Education Committee of the Association of Veterinary Informatics (AVI) requests submissions of presentation proposals for the Annual Talbot Veterinary Informatics Symposium. The 2024 symposium will be a hybrid event and preference will be for our speakers to attend in-person. It may be possible to accommodate a small number of virtual presentations in the event of travel hardship.


OPENING DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS: January 29, 2024

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: April 1, 2024

#BetterDataSavesPets

#PoweringKnowledge


We invite speakers with expertise in data management, veterinary healthcare information technology, and practical informatics to join us. Especially those able to speak around our major themes:

Informatics in Practice: Evidence-based veterinary medicine, One Health, Practical workflow, Electronic health records, Epidemiology, Statistics, Data transmission, Effective data mining, Telehealth

The Backbone of Informatics: Standards and Interoperability

Veterinary Educational Technology: Leveraging technology for client education, client engagement, and professional veterinary education


Submissions are invited from both inside and outside the veterinary profession wherever information technologies have been shown effective in solving real problems for veterinarians. Presentations will be chosen competitively with preferences to those aligned with the symposium's theme and/or with information a practitioner might take back to practice. Multiple presentations by the same author are strongly encouraged.

The Talbot Education Committee of AVI will review all proposals.

Please note that these lectures will be pending RACE certification. RACE approval cannot be guaranteed for your lecture. We may require additional documentation to apply for RACE certification. Successfully accepted speakers will need to disclose conflicts of interests.

All potential speakers are reminded that this forum is for professional education, not for sales or descriptions of specific commercial products the speaker may be associated with.

Honoraria are available for the 2024 Talbot Symposium, thanks to several generous sponsors. (Speakers: Expense report template is available here.)


The deadline for abstract submissions is April 1, 2024. Speakers will be notified by May 30, 2024 if they have been successful. Proposals, consisting of title, abstract, keywords, author(s), degrees, affiliation, role or job position and contact information (email, address, phone) must be submitted via our online submission form. Accepted speakers must then prepare a biography, full proceedings paper, and a slide deck in accordance with the AVI Talbot Informatics Symposium or host guidelines.

Please note that the AVI will supply a PowerPoint template including AVI logos that we appreciate speakers inserting into their presentations.
