American Society for Virology 2017 (June 24-28, Madison, WI)

8 de Mayo de 2017 - Publicado en OTROS CONGRESOS

The 2017 Annual ASV meeting is coming up soon. Here are some important reminders and information about the meeting.

  • The meeting is June 24-28, 2017, at the Monona Terrace in Madison, WI, and is once again hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Information can be found at https://extensionconferencecenters.uwex.edu/asv2017/.
  • Early Bird Registration, which offers a discounted rate, is available only until 5/19/17 at 11:59 p.m. CDT
  • Registration is still open for four Saturday Satellite symposia (Veterinary Vaccines; Virus/Host Co-Evolutionary Processes; Comparisons and Contrasts between Animal and Plant Vector-borne viruses; and Mathematical Virology). The Career Planning Workshop has reached its full capacity of 100, and registration is closed for this event.
  • An "ASV Survival Guide", written by Victoria Meliopoulos and Matthew Evans, can be found at http://www.asv.org/survival-guide. These tips for getting the most out of the ASV meeting should be incredibly helpful for trainees, people who are new to the meeting, and anyone who wants to improve how they use the ASV app.
  • In response to comments from the ASV survey, the 2017 meeting will have a few schedule adjustments. Coffee breaks in the morning have been extended to allow more time to talk to colleagues, and afternoon workshops have been shortened so that they do not overlap with the poster sessions. Together these changes enable more networking opportunities for all.
  • A job bulletin board will be available to advertise postdoctoral, faculty and other positions. This will replace the jobs mixer that had been held in past years.

A near record number of abstracts were submitted for this meeting, covering a wide array of virology. It is exciting to see how much outstanding research is being done by those in the ASV community!
