As you may know, as a response to the current political situation in Spain and Catalonia, there have been peaceful protest movements occurring in Barcelona. We do not expect any related disruption at the conference site and there should be no impact on the meeting. Moreover, the demonstration up till now have been completely peaceful and have not caused us to be concerned regarding our safety/security. Finally, during the last months we have successfully held three other conferences in Barcelona (two in September and one in October) and we are working to make Viruses 2018 a great meeting for the Virology community.
