This is from Clare Rusbridge:
The Ann Conway Trust (a syringomyelia support and research charity) is organising a 3 day International Conference in historical Rugby England in October 23-25 2007. They are keen to involve veterinary/dog aspects - and if there is enough interest a satellite dog breeder/owner meeting could be arranged (this would probably have its own (cheaper) fee so that owners / breeders could attend this and not the entire conference). The aim would be to have seminar(s) / question and answer session. I think that this will prove to be a unique and exciting conference drawing together neurosurgeons, neuroscientists, veterinary surgeons and paraprofessionals to discuss a disease where we all still have much to learn. So I can gauge whether there will be sufficient interest to organise a dedicated breeder / owner meeting I would be grateful if you could discuss this amongst the various groups and forums you are a member of and let me know if there is interest / have people contact me.
(p.s. this is not related to the round table meeting organised by the CKCS club in November 2006)
