It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the International Virus Bioinformatics Meeting 2022 (ViBioM 2022), to be held in Valencia, Spain, 24–25 March 2022. The meeting is jointly organized by the European Virus Bioinformatics Center (EVBC), the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology (IATA-CSIC), and the University of Valencia

ViBioM 2022 will offer a great possibility to exchange the latest research results and experiences with an extensive network of leading experts in virology and bioinformatics and engage in inspiring discussions. Our aim is to encourage and assist scientific exchange in both areas and initiate scientific cooperations. The meeting will focus on bioinformatics approaches in virology, and we welcome any contributions dealing with the recent advancements and current understanding of computational technology of virology.

At the current stage, we plan for an on-site conference in Valencia, Spain, which will be the perfect place to also celebrate the 5th birthday of the EVBC. Registration is free of charge, works on a first-come, first-serve basis and is open for 120 participants. Depending on the pandemic situation, it might be necessary to switch to a virtual conference.

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