Annual Congresses and Symposia


IVSA holds annual congresses (July/August) and symposia (December/January). During these events the General Assembly (GA) is brought together, deciding the future of IVSA. Next to this there are also cultural events, the IVSA Development Fund (DF) auction, various lectures and workshops, and lively networking among the future vets around the world at these events.

The hosts of the annual congresses and symposia are elected by the GA two annual meetings in advance (1.5 years).
