ICRAV 2018 is to be held in Dubai from the 3rd to the 10th March 2018 at the iconic Meydan Hotel. The Organising Committee is pleased to invite you to attend and benefit from the plethora of scientific presentations as well as enjoy the unique hospitality of Dubai.

The conference theme is based on the quote from H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Prime- Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai:
“Determination, strategy and vision for the future are our real resources in the quest for excellence and success”

Joint sessions on Screening Limits and Thresholds, Human doping control & Gene therapy will be centered around this theme and will discuss new approaches and the way forward.

These sessions will also focus on welfare and future strategies in regulatory control as they relate to economics and safety and provide a platform for submitted papers of general interest to Analysts and Veterinarians.

We also encourage you to submit papers for oral or poster presentation for the separate Analytical and Veterinary sessions. Papers on advances in technology, new analytical methods, mass spectrometry etc., would be of interest to the analysts. The veterinary sessions would address topics such as Post-Race examinations; Jockey safety; Preventing injury and World-best Welfare policies and strategies amongst others.
