If you delay registering for the Virtual Conference you may not get access whilst it is streaming live as the platform WAVMA is using cannot be open for registration during the conference. Registration will effectively close at midnight on the 2nd May and will not open again until the live conference is over. So ensure you sign up now.
A great advantage of this conference is the ability to not only listen to the presentations but ask questions of the presenter and discuss with your peers on the subject matter. This provides for a far better learning experience and contributes to the overall knowledge gained from the presentation. The discussion forums will remain open after the event but whether or not you will get that burning question answered by the presenter or another expert in the field may be debatable. Sign up to ensure you get to learn all you can from the conference.
We have five keynote speakers all recognised experts in their fields with some very topical presentations. Listen to:
Prof Greg Lewbart discussing advances in invertebrate medicine
Keith Davenport discussing the social and environmental advantages of ornamental fish keeping
Prof Simon Davies on creating tomorrows robust fish through superior nutritional strategies
Prof Mohamed Faisal discussing surveillance and control of diseases in wild populations
Prof Ron Roberts - title to be confirmed.

Prof Rod Wilson on the physiological effects of high CO2 in recirculation systems
Dr Devon Dublin on the Japanese Satoyama-Satoumi concept and its usefulness within the framework of One Health.
