The Australasian Virology Society aims to promote, encourage, support and advocate for the discipline of virology in the Australasian region. The society was incorporated in 2011 after 10 years operating as the Australian Virology Group (AVG), founded in 2001. AVG began as a regular biennial meeting whose aim was to provide a national forum and opportunity for those with interests in human, animal, plant, or prokaryotic virology to meet and discuss wide-ranging issues from basic molecular virology to ecology, disease, diagnosis, and control. This meeting is now a regular feature of the Australasian virology calendar.
The Brazilian Society for Virology (BSV) was established in 1986 to support the development of basic and applied virology in South America. The society promotes the exchange of information and stimulates the collaboration among virologists.
The Canadian Society for Virology (CSV) was established in 2016 to support the further development of a robust Canadian virology research community. The society seeks to help virologists interact and exchange ideas and support the training and career development of the next generation of researchers. The CSV has created structures that will foster collaboration and accelerate the translation of research findings to positive outcomes for Canadians.
The German Society for Virology (Gesellschaft für Virologie; GfV) promotes the development of Virology as a research area in the life sciences, medicine and veterinary medicine. Founded in 1990, the society is the largest virological society in Europe with about 1'100 members, mainly from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but also further countries.

SIV-ISV is operating to disseminate the culture and science of Virology at all institutional levels.
Society’s duties include: informing the public opinion about the major achievements in the Virology field, collaborating with governmental Organizations, establishing relationships with national and foreign Associations having similar aims and sharing the same values as SIV-ISV.
The main objective of the Spanish Society for Virology (SEV) is to promote basic and applied virology both amongst interested parties and society as a whole, to encourage exchange of information, and stimulate discussion and collaboration among virologists. The SEV is an interdisciplinary society with some 460 members, who work on a wide variety of different areas of Virology.
The SEV represents Spanish virologists in the Spanish Confederation of Scientific Societies (COSCE) and in the Federation of European Microbiology Societies (FEMS), and as thus is responsible for managing FEMS grants for young research workers and financial help for the organization of scientific meetings.
The Swedish Society for Virology was founded in 2008 to provide a forum for all interested in virology, including clinical, pre-clinical, environmental, veterinary, plant and/or microbial (phage) virology. The aim of the society is to promote the exchange of information and stimulate discussion and collaboration among scientists active in all aspects of virology. The society presents current information regarding upcoming events and meetings, grants, positions, and education opportunities.
