With great pleasure, we invite you to participate in the 7th Meeting of The European Society for Virology (ESV), to be held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, 28 April – 1 May 2019.
ESV was founded in 2008 to provide a forum for investigators of human, animal, plant, fungal, insect, archaeal and bacterial viruses. Our intention is to organize a meeting that will be of interest to this broad range of virologists, in a manner that stimulates discussion and collaboration among scientists active in all aspects of virology. To reflect this, we have installed a scientific advisory board with leading scientists from each of these areas.
The meeting will have a mixture of 6 cross disciplinary plenary sessions, and 20 thematic sessions, for which we are currently receiving suggestions from a wide range of virologists. Each session will host a state-of-the art speaker. We are delighted that professor Racaniello has agreed to be present to record some TWIV podcasts. As the meeting will be held in a theatre, we expect to be able to do this in front of an audience, for which we will give preferential access to PhD students and post docs.
