Dear Colleague:

In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the "discovery" of a cattle
disease that is now known to be caused by BVD virus, an international
symposium will convene at Cornell University on June 23-25, 1996. The 
intent
of the symposium is to review the past 50 years of BVD research and to
attempt to set the agenda for future efforts to control this ruminant
pathogen. This meeting will cover all aspects of BVD virus including
historic perspectives, molecular biology of the virus, pathogenesis of 
acute
BVD virus infections as well as mucosal disease, epidemiology, 
diagnostics,
vaccines and other control strategies. The goal of the meeting is to 
provide
a comprehensive overview for everyone interested in the BVD virus 
disease
complex.

Through the generosity of a grant from Pfizer Animal Health, an
international panel of invited speakers will present the main program. 
In
addition, abstracts will be solicited from those who wish to present new
data from ongoing studies. These will be interspersed with the invited
presentations or selected for a poster session on Monday evening. Time 
will
be allotted for roundtable discussions to allow attendees to question 
and
comment on the presentations.

The meeting site will be the College of Veterinary Medicine with shuttle
service provided from local hotels to the College. The welcoming 
reception
on Sunday, lunches on Monday and Tuesday as well as dinner on Monday 
will be
provided at the Conference site.

We hope you will join us for the auspicious occasion.
