Update on 2021 ESS Virtual Symposium

The Equine Science Society’s 2021 Virtual Symposium was attended by almost 400 individuals from 18 countries. The virtual platform represents a unique opportunity for individuals to view almost 160 scientific presentations, two keynote presentations, a workshop, and live Q&A sessions at their leisure. The Symposium program includes a list of presentation titles and highlights the diversity of equine-related topics covered including nutrition, reproductive physiology, biosciences, production and management, exercise science, teaching and extension, and genetics. Interested individuals can register for the Symposium until August 2, 2021 and recordings are available for viewing until September 3, 2021.


Guidelines for Sharing Virtual Symposium Content

ESS is committed to supporting comradery among the equine science community and disseminating research-based information to the horse industry. As attendees summarize and share research presented at the recent ESS Virtual Symposium on websites, blogs, social media, and newsletters, we ask that these guidelines are followed:

  • Please do not use the ESS logo as this implies that ESS provided the summary.
  • Any figures, tables, images, and equations must have author permission for reproduction and screen capture images are strictly prohibited. ESS enforces a “no photos” policy during in-person meetings as well.  
  • Direct quotes of text from abstracts must be placed in quotation marks and attributed to the original publication.

These guidelines help ensure we respect publication boundaries, give appropriate credit to authors, and acknowledge ESS and the Journal of Equine Veterinary Science.
