7–9 February 2018 Viruses 2018

Barcelona, Spain

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the conference “Viruses 2018: Breakthroughs in Viral Replication” to be held in Barcelona, Spain 7-9, February, 2018. The importance of viruses to human health has never been more apparent, and significant progress is being made in understanding virus replication, structure, transmission, pathogenesis, and antiviral immunity. This conference will bring together leading virologists from around the world to share their recent findings. Meeting participants will have the opportunity to present posters and short talks on their work and discuss their research in a relaxed, collegial environment.

The conference is sponsored by MDPI, the publisher of the open-access journal Viruses and follows the very successful meeting Viruses 2016: At the Forefront of Virus-Host Interactions held in Jan 2016 in Basel, Switzerland. 

I very much look forward to seeing you at this exciting meeting in Barcelona.

Best regards,

Eric O. Freed, Ph.D.

Editor-in-Chief, Viruses
Director, HIV Dynamics and Replication Program

9–12 April 2018 6th Pan-American Dengue Research Network Meeting

Galveston, TX, USA

The Pan-American Dengue Research Network Meeting (http://www.pandenguenet.org/) is an initiative to gather researchers across the Americas every two years to discuss their recent advancements in the field, communicate this information to the scientific community in the region, foster collaborations among groups, and discuss future research strategies that will further strengthen the field. During these meetings, cutting-edge topics on dengue field are presented and discussed. One of the main objectives of this application is to guarantee the participation of many graduate students and junior investigators from Latin American and Caribbean regions, which have been usually underrepresented in science. The scientific meeting to be held for the first time in the US and undoubtedly will make an important contribution to supporting and broadening the impact of research on dengue throughout the hemisphere.

9–13 July 2018 Viruses of Microbes V: Biodiversity and future applications

Wroclaw, Poland

The central theme of the meeting is ‘Biodiversity and future applications’ of viruses infecting microbes (algae, archaea, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses). Viruses have always been a key element of microbial diversity and evolution, as well as a tool for a molecular biologist to learn more about how the host cell functions. This information has also been put to productive use in latter days to control infections and fouling in many areas of our modern life.
The conference talks are grouped into sessions covering key areas of ecology, host-virus dynamics, biotechnological, medical aspects, and structural biology. A main objective of the meeting is to stimulate new understanding of the role that viruses of microbes play in ecosystems and in the sustainable development of human technologies.
