Next Generation Sequencing in Clinical Virology II edition

After the great success of the first ESCV Workshop on Next Generation Sequencing in Clinical Virology last 20-21 November 2018 in Leiden, The Netherlands, we wish to announce the second edition of this workshop which will be held in Valencia, Spain, on 24-25 June 2019, in collaboration with the University of Valencia and the Foundation for the Promotion of Health and Biomedical Research of the Valencian Community (FISABIO). This workshop is open to all the ESCV members interested in metagenomics, bioinformatics and diagnostics-related aspects of NGS relevant to Clinical Virology. It will include lectures by experts in the field and discussions about NGS-related issues presented by the participants. The application form and provisional programme can be found through the following link:



The workshop is funded by the ESCV to further the aims of the Society, which include education and improvement of our knowledge on viral diseases for the promotion of public health. It will also be an opportunity for members of the ESCV Network on NGS in Clinical Virology (ENNGS) to meet and discuss topics of interest.

There is no registration fee for ESCV members and, as a member, you can apply for a bursary to cover (part of) your meeting attendance expenses using the application form. A total of 35 grants will be available from the ESCV and will provide up to €500 for travel and accommodation. If you are not a member yet,  join the ESCV here; the annual fee is €40.

Completed application forms must be returned by 30 April 2019. Successful applicants for a bursary will be informed by 10 May 2018.
