In memory of
EVECCS, ECVECC and the Congress Organising Committee are very sad to have lost our colleague and friend on 11th June 2019 at the age of 41 years. Andrew was a talented emergency and critical care clinician having taught veterinary students in both the USA and the UK, and latterly at R(D)SVS Edinburgh. He was keen to push the boundaries of learning and had an inquisitive mind with a passion for research.
Andrew was Vice-President of ECVECC and a valued member of our Congress Organising Committee, our thoughts are with his family. We in the ECC community will miss him greatly, as will his many friends, colleagues and students across the globe.

Our profession lost a cherished friend, colleague and mentor with the death of Isabelle Goy-Thollot on April 30th, 2023.
Isabelle has been a pioneer in the ECC world as she opened the first ICU in France (SIAMU®) in 2000, of which she was not only the head of unit for 19 years, but also a true leader for her team and students.
After developing ECC in the vet school, she developed this specialty in France by being in the board of the first ECC French society, and then started to connect with European criticalists. She was involved in EVECCS from the beginning and was the president from 2005 till 2008.
She was named one of the 10 people who became Founding Diplomates of the European College of ECC and worked hard for the development of the specialty in France and Europe.
We will always remember her professionalism, her modern vision on ECC and her perseverance in all projects. Everyone who knew Isabelle will also remember her elegance, her laugh and sense of humour!

The EVECC team and the veterinary community mourn the tragic passing of Louise O'Dwyer, who has inspired and trained so many of us, and whose loss will be felt throughout the ECC family. Louise was unique and irreplaceable, and will be a big miss at our Congress.

The EVECC team and the veterinary community also mourn the tragic passing of Gary Stamp. Gary was a true pioneer and was instrumental in the development of the whole specialty of ECC. Gary’s support was invaluable and EVECCS wouldn’t be where we are today without him.
