October 24-26, 2016, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a Clinical Virology Symposium will be co-organized by our pan-american sister society PASCV. The main goals for this meeting are to share and discuss knowledge about the advances in viral diagnosis with a focus on molecular assays and novel technologies, as well as to learn on the improvement, characteristics, and indications of new human vaccines and new therapeutics. Details can be found on the meeting website.

The ESCV E-learning program is available, free of charge for ESCV members. Two programs are available: 
- Congenital Virus Infection, based on lectures given workshop in Regensburg, March 2015
