Welcome to the 2022 European Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging Annual Scientific Conference in Edinburgh; Scotland’s stunning capital! For three days, the Assembly Rooms, a beautiful 18th century meeting hall on George Street in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town, concealing a state-of-the-art conference centre, will be our home. An excellent scientific programme awaits you with cutting edge oral presentations and posters, as well as stimulating keynote and masterclass lectures and workshops provided by many internationally renowned speakers.
Our social programme meanwhile will explore some of the most culturally and scientifically interesting sites in the city while promising to provide a truly Scottish experience, including bagpipes, ceilidh dancing and the opportunity to sample local delicacies such as smoked salmon and haggis, and tipples such as a wee dram of locally produced whisky or gin.
Edinburgh itself is a compact city, just 30 minutes from the airport, conveniently linked by tram and bus with numerous visitor attractions, hotels, shops and restaurants within walking distance. In addition to the numerous activities in the city itself, Edinburgh makes an excellent starting point for excursions around the rest of Scotland including the vibrant city of Glasgow, the beautiful Scottish Highlands and historic St. Andrews, the home of golf.
We hope you thoroughly enjoy the congress and your stay here with us in Edinburgh.
Sincerely, with warm regards and very best wishes
Prof. Tobias Schwarz

Passing away Queen Elizabeth II
Dear Friends and colleagues,
Following the sad news yesterday of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the United Kingdom is entering a period of national mourning. Though minimal official details have yet been released this period will extend through next weeks conference.
Naturally we appreciate there will be some concerns over what, if any, effect there may be. Early indications are that for the most part things will proceed as planned, although one or more of the Friday tours may be affected and there is the possibility of travel disruption. We will contact those who may be affected by tour alterations in due course, and we recommend that you check with your travel providers if you have concerns. If any more significant alterations are required, we will communicate these as soon as we are able as more details are released.
