Europe/Berlin timezone

The 30th International Dynamics & Evolution of Human Viruses conference will be held April 19-22, 2023 at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the Heidelberg Marriott in Heidelberg, 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.

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