We provide handouts and 60 slide sets for 120 participants. Slides will be viewed with individual microscopes and remain at the department. All slides will be scanned. The electronic slides will be accessible for registrants approximately 2 weeks in advance of the seminar, during the seminar, and approximately 4 weeks thereafter. The slides will have a format that does not require the installation of software for examination in a standard browser ("VM SlideBrowser" will be executed). Once the electronic slides are accessible, registrants will be informed and need to use the access data received upon registration. We recommend examining the electronic slides before the seminar, as access during the seminar is limited by the performance of the University WLAN.

The slides can now be accessed with the information provided upon registration.

Please register as soon as possible, at the latest by January 31, 2019. The registration fee is 110 € for members, 150 € for non-members, and 50 € for students, which should be paid upon registration. Payment details will be received with the invoice after registration. Participation is free for students and employees of the University of Veterinary Medicine, Hannover.

We hope that you will join us for an informal get-together in the Foyer of the meeting venue on Friday evening after the end of the last session. Finger food and drinks are covered by the registration fee.
