Dear colleagues and friends,

We are pleased to announce that registration and abstract submission is now open for the XVIth International Nidovirus Symposium, which will take place from May 14-18, 2023, in Montreux, Switzerland.

Over the past 40 years, the Nidovirus Symposium has evolved into a triennial event covering all aspects of nidoviruses and nidovirology.  This eclectic group of viruses are found in humans and animals and include pathogens such as SARS-CoV-2, zoonotic SARS- and MERS-coronaviruses, common cold viruses, and many other economically and highly relevant livestock viruses.

​This meeting will provide the opportunity for researchers from across the world to share their latest discoveries and scientific results and exchange ideas face to face. The meeting will take place between the 14th and 18th May 2023 with the stunning backdrop of Lake Geneva at the Montreux, Music and Convention Centre (2m2c), Switzerland.

We have an excellent scientific program planned that includes many international experts in the field of Nidovirology, including keynote talks from Mike Ryan (WHO, Switzerland), Christian Drosten (Charité, Germany), and Ralph Baric (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA). Other confirmed speakers include Edward Holmes, Lisa Gralinski, Stanley Perlman, Linda Saif, Elizabeth Campbell, Vincent Munster, Shane Crotty, and many more respected colleagues.

We are happy to share that Vincent Racaniello will be onsite to broadcast an episode of TWIV from the Symposium. Furthermore, we are pleased to announce that Virus Research will publish a Nidovirus Special Issue and waive the APC fees for papers submitted to this issue for attendees of the Symposium.

After the last online meeting in 2021, we are excited to have an in-person meeting again and are looking forward to welcoming you here in Switzerland!
