TriNation logo competition!

For a while, there has been a discussion that TriNation should have its own logo. Something to recognize the initiative.

Therefore, TriNation Steering group would like to invite anyone with a creative mind to submit a logo for the TriNation, with the following criteria:

-Should be easily recognizable

-Easy to print

-Should contain the word «TriNation»

-Should somehow relate to the three viral diseases; PD, HSMI and CMS, and/or to viral diseases of hearts in salmonids. It should be thus discernable from other «Trination» initiatives.

Remember, that the aim of the TriNation is to integrate and focus the activities of academia and industry from Norway, Ireland, Scotland and more recently other salmon farming regions on SAV, PRV and PMCV and related diseases. Your logo suggestion should be forwarded to Tore Hovland (tore @ (remove spaces), before May 10th. You can use any format you like for the proposal. The winner of the competition will be announced at the meeting in Dublin, and a suitable and attractive prize will be handed over, in addition to the honour of having designed the one and only TriNation logo.

TriNation 2019 -Call for presentations

For the 2019 TriNation meeting, we invite scientists or industry representatives to submit presentations on current research updates on PD, CMS or HSMI and PRV.

Focus areas for this year’s meeting will be:

-Experience from the field. First hand reports from fish health personnel

-Vaccination and control. Special focus on experience from field and deformity/welfare issues

-Concurrent infections, including diagnostic challenges in regard to this.

-Discussion on the use of models for disease spread in control and legislation. Including experiences with the new Norwegian PD legislation.

-Welfare session. Coupled with heart diseases.

Presentations addressing any of these issues are therefore specifically encouraged, but all new and relevant research regarding the three diseases and their agents are welcome.

If you are interested in giving a presentation, please forward a title, name and affiliation of presenter and a short description of the topic (3-5 lines), including a brief summary of the practical implications of the findings. The presentation should be applicable and focused towards solutions for the industry. Please keep in mind that this is not a scientific conference only for researchers!

Proposals should be sent to britt-bang.jensen @ (remove all spaces before mailing).

We will close for abstract submission April 15th, and let presenters know May 3rd (at the latest) if they have been selected or not. In case more presentations are submitted than can be accommodated in the program, the steering committee will choose those that fit the program best between the submitted presentations for oral presentations, and the rest will be offered to give a poster instead.
