33rd Annual Meeting of the American Society for Virology
2014-06-21 to 2014-06-25
Fort Collins, Colorado, USA

Colorado State University, Fort Collins, Colorado
June 21 – 25, 2014

We invite you to participate in the 33rd Annual Meeting of the American Society for Virology being held in Fort Collins, Colorado and hosted by the Colorado State University.

The 2014 ASV scientific program will include symposia, two (2) satellite symposia; concurrent workshops and poster sessions on a wide range of virology topics; and special educational presentations punctuated by collegial mixers and social events. The conference will also feature a showcase of exhibitors. The meeting will begin Saturday, June 21st with satellite symposia and kicks off with the Welcome Reception at 3:30 pm which will be followed by the Keynote Address at 5:30 pm and the first group of simultaneous workshop sessions that evening. Note: The deadline for the electronic submission of abstracts ended February 3, 2014.

Fort Collins and the Colorado Front Range

The City is a vibrant community with a thriving art and music scene centered in its Old Town district, a short walk from campus, or use the city’s new MAX rapid transit line. An array of culinary options can be found in Old Town and many offer outdoor dining. We urge you to consider spending a few extra days pre- or post-ASV 2014 to take advantage of Colorado’s abundance of natural beauty and recreational activities near Fort Collins, such as walking the Poudre River Trail, mountain biking at Horsetooth Resevoir, fly-fishing and white water rafting on the Cache La Poudre or Big Thompson Rivers, or visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park about an hour drive away in Estes Park, one of America’s most beautiful natural areas. Fly into Denver International Airport, located approximately 60 miles from Fort Collins, where shuttle bus services or car rentals may be reserved for travel to the meeting site.


On-campus residence hall rooms are available for participants. In addition, a number of rooms have been blocked at local hotels which may be reserved by ASV 2014 meeting participants. Visit the conference web site at for complete program information; online meeting registration; as well as information on travel and accommodations.

We look forward to seeing you at ASV 2014!

Poznan, Poland

An international symposium of the Polish Society of Experimental Plant Biology.

The Organizing Committee is very pleased to invite you to participate in the next Post-transcriptional Gene Expression Regulation in Plants meeting which will be held in Poznan, Poland, in the Collegium Biologicum of Adam Mickiewicz University, Umultowska 89, 61-614 Poznan. The PGRP meeting 2014 will start on Monday June 30th at 8.00 am, and end on Wednesday July 2nd at 2 pm.

All aspects of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in plants will be covered.

Topics include:

  • Regulation of pre-mRNA processing
  • RNA turn-over and surveillance
  • Regulation of translation
  • Epigenetics
  • Long non-coding RNAs
  • Biogenesis and function of small RNAs
  • Regulation of plant development and stress responses at the level of RNA
  • Bioinformatic and computational tools to study RNA structure, evolution and function link

Viruses of microbes: Structure and function, from molecules to communities
2014-07-14 to 2014-07-18
Zurich, Switzerland

Viruses of microbes are the largest biological entity on planet earth. Despite their omnipresence, many aspects of the biology of viruses of microorganisms, the interaction with their hosts, and their ecological impact are not well understood. Furthermore, these viruses offer a broad repertoire of tools which can be harnessed for a variety of applications in medicine, food safety, and biotechnology. The Viruses of Microbes Meeting aims to bring together researchers working on all aspects of these organisms, ranging from fundamental research on structure, genetics, and molecular mechanisms, to biotechnology and applications. link

International Union of Microbiological Societies
2014-07-27 to 2014-08-01
Montreal, Canada
We are pleased to announce that the Opening Scientific Lecture, scheduled on Sunday, July 27, 2014, will be delivered by Prof. Julian Davies from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Life Sciences Institute, University of British Columbia. link

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
