It is with great pleasure that we announce the conference Viruses 2020 – Novel Concepts in Virology to be held in Barcelona, Spain, 5-7 February 2020.
Because of their global impact on human, animal, and plant health and their utility as tractable model systems, viruses continue to play a central role in all aspects of biomedical research, ranging from molecular and cell biology, structural biology, and immunology to evolution, epidemiology, and bioinformatics. This conference will bring together leading virologists from around the world and across the broad field of virology to share results of their recent studies. Meeting participants will have the opportunity to present posters and short talks on their work and discuss their research in a stimulating and collegial environment.
The conference is sponsored by MDPI, the publisher of the open-access journal Viruses and follows the very successful meetings Viruses 2016 – At the Forefront of Virus-Host Interactions held in January 2016 in Basel, Switzerland and Viruses 2018 – Breakthroughs in Viral Replication, held in February 2018 in Barcelona.
We very much look forward to seeing you at this exciting meeting in Barcelona.
