3rd AACTING Conference

 Dear colleagues,

Due to the current situation, we sadly have to announce that our 3rd AACTING Conference has to be postponed to a currently unknown date in 2021. Our University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover decided that events could not take place with the distance rules issued until the end of the year 2020. However, we hope that we can welcome you in our beautiful city of Hannover in 2021 for the conference and a cold drink on a warm summer evening during the Herrenhäuser Garden Festival or in winter with a cup of mulled wine at the Christmas market.

Moreover, we are pleased to offer you a Christmas online presentation lasting two hours with two of our excellent keynote speakers.

For the talk on 3 December 2020, you can register by email:

In October, we will send out a link for participation in MS Teams.

Further information about the talk are attached.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon.


Best regards,

Anne Schnepf
