Welcome from the Conference Chair

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the conference “Viruses 2018: Breakthroughs in Viral Replication” to be held in Barcelona, Spain 7-9, February, 2018. The importance of viruses to human health has never been more apparent, and significant progress is being made in understanding virus replication, structure, transmission, pathogenesis, and antiviral immunity. This conference will bring together leading virologists from around the world to share their recent findings. Meeting participants will have the opportunity to present posters and short talks on their work and discuss their research in a relaxed, collegial environment.

The conference is sponsored by MDPI, the publisher of the open-access journal Viruses and follows the very successful meeting “Viruses 2016: At the Forefront of Virus-Host Interactions” held in Jan 2016 in Basel, Switzerland. 

I very much look forward to seeing you at this exciting meeting in Barcelona.
