SAVE THE DATE: International Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference 2020

10 Jun 2019

International Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference 2020, The Melia Hotel, Hanoi, Vietnam, 16th- 18th March 2020.

We are delighted to announce the International Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference 2020, hosted in partnership with CIRAD and the National Institute of Veterinary Research, will be on the 16th – 18th March 2020 in The Melia Hotel, Hanoi, Vietnam.

This three-day event will build on the success of the inaugural IVVN conference in Nairobi, Kenya in March 2018 and the UK & International Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference in London, UK in January 2019. IVVN annual conferences are an excellent opportunity for the global veterinary vaccinology community to meet, and establish novel, international collaborations that are required to develop vaccines for livestock and zoonotic diseases of importance in low-and-middle income countries (LMICs).

The International Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference 2020 will consist of four species-specific themes:

  • Vaccines for Poultry: co-hosted by One Health Poultry Hub and chaired by Prof. Fiona Tomley (Royal Veterinary College, UK)
  • Vaccines for Aquaculture: chaired by Prof. Sandra Adams (University of Stirling, UK) and Dr Thao Ngo (Biotechnology Centre of Ho-chi Min City, Vietnam)
  • Vaccines for Ruminants: chaired by Prof. Bryan Charleston (The Pirbright Institute, UK) and Dr. Yanmin Li (The Lanzhou Veterinary Research Institute, CAAS, Lanzhou, China) 
  • Vaccines for Swine: chaired by Dr. Simon Graham (The Pirbright Institute, UK) and Dr. Wantanee Kalpravidh (FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, Thailand)

Each session will be composed of presentations from invited speakers and selected talks from abstract submissions. There will also be a poster session, social afternoon and plenty of networking opportunities. As with previous IVVN conferences, the IVVN will provide scholarships for researchers from LMICs to attend and additionally, the UK Veterinary Vaccinology Network will provide funding for early career researchers (ECRs) to attend the event.

Conference registration, abstract submission and a call for scholarship applications will open shortly.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hanoi!
