NIDO2021 - XVth International Nidovirus Symposium

Join us online for the Nido2021 – XVth International Nidovirus Symposium, taking place on the 7th and 8th of June 2021. The Nidovirus symposium is a traditionally triennial gathering of researchers and scientists active in the field of the Nidoviruses, a broad group of pathogens of humans and animals such as the zoonotic SARS- and MERS-coronaviruses, common cold viruses, and many economically highly relevant livestock viruses. The meeting hence provides a unique international forum for sharing scientific results and exchanging ideas as well as for meeting old friends.

The program will consist of:

  • 4 plenary sessions (20 speakers)
  • 2 breakout sessions with 3 rounds of 4 parallel presentations (altogether 24 speakers)
  • 2 poster sessions, each with 2 rounds
  • opportunities to separately arrange virtual get-togethers with one or more colleagues for scientific or personal exchange

With an obvious emphasis on the new SARS coronavirus the symposium will cover the entire field of the nidoviruses with speakers presenting their most recent and ground-breaking results and scientific insights in the molecular biology, host-pathogen interactions, immune responses to infection, viral immune evasion strategies, pathogenesis, mechanisms of (cross-species) transmission, epidemiology and development of vaccines and antiviral therapies.

Abstract submission

We are inviting researchers from around the world to participate in this special edition of the International Nidovirus Symposia. In particular we are inviting researchers to submit abstracts for oral presentation to be selected either for the remaining slots in the plenary sessions (20 min) or for the breakout sessions (15 min). Finally, we are inviting researchers to submit abstracts for poster presentation, to be on view during the entire meeting and open for discussion during one of the poster sessions. Abstract submissions will open in February 2021 and close on the 26th of March 2021.

NIDO2021 is selected by the Federation of European Microbiological Societies to offer grants for congress participation for Early Career Researchers
