If a laboratory is canceled, all registrants for the canceled laboratory will be notified via email no later than September 6, and all paid registration fees will be refunded.

Laboratory registrants are advised not to make airline and hotel reservations until after September 6 to ensure their selected laboratory is not canceled. ACVS will not reimburse for travel in the case of a cancellation.

All laboratory registration fees must be paid in full by August 29 to guarantee a seat in the desired laboratory. After August 29, all unpaid seats will be released and offered to other participants.
