Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, the SPPV-HPV Portuguese Society and the International Papillomavirus Society (IPVS), we are honoured to invite you to participate in the 30th International Papillomavirus Conference & Clinical and Public Health Workshops that will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on September 17 -21, 2015.
This exciting conference will bring together researchers, clinicians and other healthcare professionals in an international forum, enabling the exchange of the latest advances in both science and practice, within the research and clinical community.
Through a variety of state-of-the-art sessions, keynote lectures, roundtable discussions, workshops and sessions including oral and poster presentations, the conference will have a special focus on HPV and globalization and exploring new worlds in basic and clinical research, and new proposals to reduce inequities in access to health.
In line with the IPVS mission, addressing the most recent advances across the spectrum of HPV research from basic sciences to public health, conference highlights will include epidemiology of HPV; molecular biology; basic immunology and pathogenesis of HPV; vaccines; prevention of cervical cancer and other papillomavirus associated diseases; strategies to help in the development of research; and promotion of the spread of the scientific knowledge to benefit the whole community.
We are happy to host the 2015 HPV meeting in the exciting city of Lisbon, Portugal. Recently voted as "Europe's Leading Destination", Lisbon's appealing climate and exciting history is amongst the most interesting of any European capital city. Lisbon's facilities attract people from all over the world, making it the right place for new bridges in science and knowledge.
We do hope that you will join us in what promises to be a most extraordinary event!
