IVBM 2020 has been postponed. New date: 08-09 October 2020


The International Virus Bioinformatics Meeting 2020 has been rescheduled to take place from 08–09 October 2020 at Eventforum in Bern, Switzerland.

The submission deadline for the Special Issue “Virus Bioinformatics 2020” in Viruses has been extended to 31 October 2020.

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in this unique conference focussing on bioinformatics approaches in virology. IVBM 2020 will offer a great possibility to exchange the latest research results and experiences to an extensive network of leading experts in virology and bioinformatics and engage in inspiring discussions. We welcome any contributions within this cross-disciplinary field. Sub-topics include (but are not limited to): Systems virology; virus-host interactions; virus classification and evolution; epidemiology and surveillance; viral metagenomics and ecology; as well as clinical bioinformatics.

IVBM 2020 is jointly organized by the European Virus Bioinformatics Center, the University of Bern and the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics. The possibility for registration, as well as the submission of abstracts, will be available online starting autumn 2019. Participation is limited to the first 120 registrations.

We look forward to welcoming old faces and new colleagues who share our excitement for computational virology!

New name – proven concept.

With the increasing interest and ongoing improvement of our annual meeting, we decided to detach the name of the meeting from the name of the EVBC. The concept, however, will remain the same.
