Overview of the Meeting
Since its inception in 1996, the International RSV symposia remains the longest ongoing meeting to specifically discuss RSV and has seen continual growth in both meeting attendance and abstracts. This event remains the premier meeting to bring together leading scientists, students, non-profits, regulators, sponsors, and leaders in industry from all over the world to discuss past and current efforts to understand, treat, and hopefully one day prevent RSV disease.
The RSV scientific community has continually grown over the last decade.
300+ Annual Attendees
200+ Posters & Abstracts
The past two international meetings, in 2014 (Stellenbosch, South Africa) and 2016 (Bariloche, Argentina), saw greater than 300 attendees and over 200 posters and abstracts presented and we anticipate greater attendance with the meeting this year.
The 11th International Respiratory Syncytial Virus Symposium (RSV 2018) will be held at the Omni Grove Park Inn in beautiful Asheville, NC USA from October 31 to November 4, 2018. This meeting is being organized by Dr. Martin Moore (Meissa Vaccines, Inc., previously in appointment at Emory University) and co-organizers Dr. Natasha Halasa (Vanderbilt University) and Dr. Christopher Stobart (Butler University) in partnership with The International RSV Society (IRSVS), founded in 2017, and the International Society for Influenza and other Respiratory Virus Diseases (ISIRV). The International Organizing Committee for this meeting features a diverse panel of leading RSV scientists from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
Past international RSV meetings have been fortunate to be sponsored by leading industry and non-profit organizations. With the recent increases in past meeting attendance and the growth of the RSV community, at this year’s meeting, we anticipate great attendance and hope you will consider providing sponsorship support.
