Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

The 2nd Symposium of the newly-founded Canadian Society for Virology (CSV2018) will be held on Dalhousie's Carleton campus on June 13-15th, 2018. CSV2018 will unite basic, clinical, epidemiological and industrial virus researchers from across Canada, to discuss their research and foster exchanges and collaborative activities. We expect at least 150 attendees, and there will be a strong emphasis on enhanced training opportunities for students and fellows, including breakout sessions on STEM communication, career development, scientific publishing and ethics.

The symposium will feature the first CSV business meeting, which will inform future society activities. The meeting will also feature an excursion and banquet at the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site.
CSV2018 attendees will be invited to a Soapbox Science Event on June 16, to be held at the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market, which will feature 12 female scientists, who will share their work with the general public.

Aquatic Virus Workshop 9
2018-06-17 to 2018-06-21
Lincoln, Nebraska, USA
We invite you to participate in the 9th International Aquatic Virus Workshop (AVW9) to be hosted and held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus, June 17-21, 2018. The Workshop provides a forum for the discussion of viruses infecting microbes and protists of aquatic systems in all parts of the planet. Our intention is to promote discussion and collaboration among the world’s leading scientists in many dimensions of virology, including virus discovery and characterization, as well as the role of viruses in aquatic ecosystems functioning. The AVW9 will honor one of the founding members, James L. Van Etten of the University of Nebraska, for his significant contributions to algal virology.

Viroid-2018: International Conference on Viroids and Viroid-Like RNAs
2018-07-05 to 2018-07-07
Valencia, Spain
Viroids occupy the lowest step in the scale of life. Exclusively constituted by a relatively small molecule of non-coding circular RNA, viroids manage to replicate, move and avoid the defense response when entering the appropriate host plant, causing in many instances important diseases in agricultural crops. In Viroid-2018, the international conference on viroids and viroid-like RNAs that will be held in Valencia (Spain) from 5 to 7 July 2018, the community of viroid researchers will present and discuss recent discoveries about all aspects of viroid and viroid-like RNA biology, including viroid replication, traffic and interaction with the host plant; structure of viroid molecules and functional domains; viroid transmission, pathogenesis and disease control; viroid diagnosis and identification of new viroid species.

Viruses of Microbes V: Biodiversity and future applications
2018-07-09 to 2018-07-13
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.

International HBV Cure Workshop 2018
2018-11-07
Toronto, Canada

We are proud to announce the 5th edition of the International HBV Cure Workshop 2018, which will take place on 7 November 2018 in Toronto, Canada.

More than 250 million people are chronically infected with hepatitis B (HBV) around the globe. The purpose of the program is to inform the participants about the developments in the possibilities to find a cure for HBV. The meeting will be highly interactive with input from experts out of the arena of basic, translational and clinical HBV research. The field of HBV treatment is undergoing major changes and is on the verge of a paradigm shift. The many new treatment options that are becoming available are providing great hopes for decreasing the burden of the disease, simplifying treatment and ultimately curing and eradicating HBV infection. In order to optimize curative treatment for HBV, outstanding speakers from around the globe will share the newest therapeutic options for viral hepatitis and experts will discuss the path forward to cure this deadly disease, leading to liver cirrhosis and liver cancer. Questions on which end points to use in therapeutic trials and how to combine different agents targeting the virus and/or immune system will be extensively discussed. This workshop also brings together global interdisciplinary experts to provide a framework for how academia and industry should could collaborate to achieve the goal of curing hepatitis B.
