This Special Issue is dedicated to the 2nd Symposium of the Canadian Society for Virology (CSV2018), which will be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, 13–15 June 2018. The symposium will be a signature event held on campus at Dalhousie University on its 200th anniversary, and fittingly, on the 100th anniversary of the 1918 influenza pandemic. This symposium will provide an important opportunity for Canadian virologists across different disciplines (basic, clinical, social, epidemiological, etc.) to meet and foster exchanges, thereby creating a broader base of research expertise committed to tackling global challenges of virus infections. Presentations will encompass a wide variety of virus-related topics, including Emerging Viruses, Viral Subversion of Host Cell Processes, Viruses of Microbes, Antivirals and Vaccines, Emerging Methods in Virology, RNA in Virus Infection, Viruses of Flora and Fauna, and Antiviral Innate Immunity.
Symposium participants are invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Viruses.
