This workshop will have a broader scope than the previous three; it will still focus on novel oncogenic viruses but will also include new insights on well-established oncogenic viruses. The meeting website provides further details, including the preliminary scientific programme and practical information about travel and accommodation. Meeting registration will open on 18 January 2016.

The meeting will immediately follow on from a major conference entitled “Global Cancer: Occurrence, Causes and Avenues to Prevention” in Lyon, France (7-10 June) on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of IARC (http://www.iarc-conference2016.com/).
