ICEEP 9 will feature the presentation of original scientific studies pertinent to the science and practice of exercise physiology in horses. Material will be considered for verbal or poster presentation at ICEEP 9 based on evaluation of written abstracts. Reviews will be performed by a minimum of two reviewers blinded to authors and affiliations. In contrast to previous ICEEP meetings there will not be an option for publication of a full length manuscript in a meeting supplement.
