European Society for Clinical Virology

 The 20th Annual Meeting of the ESCV will be held in Stresa located at the Lago Maggiore, Italy, September, 13-16 2017.

 Details can be found on the website.
 For inquiries regarding sponsoships etc, please contact the local organizers.

  The 19th annual ESCV meeting just held in September in Lisbon, Portugal, was a huge success. A big thanks to the local organizers!

  Accepted abstracts of the meeting can be found in a Supplement of the J Clinical Virology. There is also a (very nice) flip book version.
  Details can still be found on the conference ESCV2016 website. A digest of live #ESCV2016 tweets from the meeting can be found here.

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
- Clinical Virology, based on
lectures given at the annual ESCV-meeting in Prague, Sept 2014
 The program is approved by the Austrian Medical association and CME credits given should be accepted in EU and other countries.

In collaboration with ECDC and ESCMID, the ESCV offered a total of 10 travel grants of 750 to ESCV members to attend the 2016 ECDC Public Health Observership Programme in Stockholm, Sweden.

The ECDC Observership Visit provides a unique insight into Public Health Epidemiology and will allow the awardees to interact with experienced ECDC staff, EUPHEM recruits and colleagues from around the world with an interest in infection. Next year we will probably participate in 2017 Observerships. So keep an eye on our website. The aims and objectives of the ECDC Observer visit can be found on the ECDC website.

October 24-26, 2016, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a Clinical Virology Symposium will be co-organized by our pan-american sister society the 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.

Lectures and cases presented during past ESCV Workshops can be found in the Members area (Workshop banner at top of screen)

For example those presented at the
Congenital Viral Infections in Regensburg, March 2015, and at the
