Workshop on Emerging Virus Infections
Dear ESCV members,
We cordially invite you to attend a workshop on Emerging Virus Infections to be held at the University Clinic of Dentistry Vienna in room B1 and B2 (Sensengasse 2a, 1090 Vienna, Austria), 23rd and 24th January 2020.
The workshop aims to give an update on different aspects of emerging virus infections. It will provide an overview on the actual epidemiological situation and clinical data of different emerging viruses as Flavi-, Hanta- Chikungunya-, Avian flu-, Crimean-Congo-, Ebola-, Corona-, or Bornaviruses, especially concerning the situation in Europe. It will further focus on the handling of highly infectious samples from patient to the diagnostic labs and will deal with challenges in diagnostics of emerging viruses.
The workshop will combine lectures by experts in the field and discussions about interesting aspects of emerging infections, and the participants are encouraged to also provide short case contributions on the topic.
Due to the workshop format, there will be enough room for discussions with well-known experts and exchange of ideas with other European clinical virologists.
The workshop is supported by the ESCV to further serve the aims of the Society, which include education and improvement of our knowledge on viral diseases and contribute to the promotion of public health.
