Program Description

 

The 29th International Dynamics & Evolution of Human Viruses conference will be held June 22-24, 2022 at the Sanford Consortium in La Jolla California. This will be a hybrid meeting, which will include a live in person meeting and a virtual option.

This meeting series was designed to promote discussion between specialists in quantitative and computational approaches in two areas in the field of virology where these are particularly important:

  1. Modeling of viral and cellular dynamics
  2. Viral evolution and population genetics

Many of these approaches were originally developed for HIV but are now applied to many viruses where extensive data are available. We encourage the submission of abstracts relating to work on HIV, SARS-CoV-2 and other human viruses. We consider topics on statistical, mathematical, computational, and integrative approaches to analyzing the dynamics and evolution of human viruses within the scope of this meeting.

Abstracts are being submitted under the following topics from which the final conference schedule will be constructed:

  • Genomic Sequencing & Bioinformatics
  • Vaccines & Immunology
  • Software Tools & Methods
  • Origins & Emergence
  • Transmission Dynamics & Clusters
  • Within Host Dynamics

We actively encourage participation of researchers from around the globe, including junior scientists and members of minority groups.

 

We will continue to accept abstract submissions for posters until April 30, 2022.

COVID-19 Health & Safety

We follow state and local guidelines and protocols related to COVID-19 safety measures. Due to the high risk for transmission in indoor settings, attendees will be required to wear a facemask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Individuals who fail to comply will not be able to participate. In such a situation, no refunds of registration fees or other venue/travel related expenses will be provided.
 
A key method to reduce transmission at both indoor and outdoor events is to verify that attendees are fully vaccinated or have recently tested negative for COVID-19.
 
Attendees are required to provide a negative PCR test 48 hours prior to arrival and a negative test within 2 days after arrival.
 
 

More information will be sent with your registration confirmation.
