The meeting will focus on the challenges of continuous emergence of viral pathogens that threaten humans, animals and plants. To meet this challenge, we have formed an interdisciplinary virology community with its members communicating together and exchanging ideas. The meeting will be the first physical meeting of this community following foundation and launching its activities. WSV has officially formed partnerships with eight national societies of virology, including the Indian Virological Society, the Colombian Association for Virology, the Mexican virology network, the Finnish Society for Study of Infectious Diseases, Societas biochemica, biophysica et microbiologica Fenniae, the Chinese Society for Virology-Division of the Chinese Society for Microbiology, La Société Marocaine de Virologie (SMaV) and the Swedish Society for Virology (SSV). The upcoming meeting and planning of future joint activities will be of interest to a broad range of virologists worldwide in a manner that stimulates collaboration among scientists.
The 1st meeting of the World Society for Virology will provide a forum for discussion of different disciplines of virology, not only human virology but also animal and plant virology, including clinical, environmental, evolutional and molecular virology. The WSV meeting will feature many keynote speakers from Asia, Africa, Europe, North America and Latin America who will discuss recent advances in virology.
- You will get information about different topics in virology.
- You will meet the founder and the different managing committee members of the WSV.
The meeting will allow the first physical meeting of the steering group (board) and their selected lab-members of the WSV with the aim to further improve the global activities of the society. Each board member will give an oral presentation of their latest scientific achievements to stimulate further interactions.
