11th Australasian Plant Virology Workshop
2014-08-13 to 2014-08-15

This is the 11th workshop in the series and will be held in Brisbane, located in subtropical south-east Queensland. In August, the days are mild and sunny and perfect for enjoying the wonderful outdoors, such as the sweeping beaches of Surfers Paradise, the World Heritage rainforest of Lamington National Park or the annual Humpback Whale migration at Hervey Bay. This workshop is timed to immediately precede the 29th International Horticultural Congress, which is also hosted by Brisbane. This is only the second time that this congress, attended by more than 2,000 delegates from around the world, has been held in the Southern Hemisphere. So please reserve the dates of 13-15 August 2014 to attend the Australasian Plant Virology Workshop. It promises to be a highlight of the plant pathology conference calendar. link

Chromatin Control of Viral Infection Symposium
2014-09-18 to 2014-09-19
Maryland 20892
Text: Advances in understanding the basic biology of chromatin deposition, modification, and modulation/remodeling will contribute to the understanding of viral diseases and present novel opportunities for prophylaxis or treatment. The workshop "2014 Chromatin Control of Viral Infection" brings together leaders in this research area representing various viral families. link

The Third ASM Conference on Viral Manipulation of Nuclear Processes
2014-10-30 to 2014-11-02
Washington, DC, USA
This meeting will bring together researchers who study how viruses manipulate cellular processes for their own replication focusing on how viruses perturb nuclear functions. The scope will be broad and will embrace diverse virus families, including DNA viruses that replicate in the nucleus, such as Polyoma-,Papilloma-, Adeno- and Herpesviruses, extending to  HIV,  retroviruses and nuclear RNA viruses, like Influenza. Also included will be RNA viruses that replicate in the cytoplasm but exploit or hijack nuclear functions. Topics will include subversion of host transcriptional machinery; effects on host DNA repair pathways; epigenetic alterations; viral remodeling of the nucleus; viral induction of the stress response, immune evasion and innate antiviral defense, miRNA regulation; viral effects on the nuclear membrane, and viruses and cancer. The goal of the conference is to integrate discussions on how different viruses have developed strategies to target host nuclear functions. link
