Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the 3rd Workshop on Emerging Oncogenic Viruses which will be held in San Pietro in Bevagna, Manduria, Italy, from 4 to 8 June 2014.

The success of the first two Emerging Oncogenic Viruses meetings, held in 2010 and 2012, and enthusiastic feedback from the participants, about 120 top scientists, encouraged us to repeat the event in 2014.

You are cordially invited to attend this meeting, which is intended for basic researchers (biologists and epidemiologists) as well as clinicians. The workshop is organized and co-sponsored by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum; DKFZ).

The objectives of the meeting will be the discussion and critical evaluation of the epidemiology, immunology, and biology of cancer-associated viruses. The meeting programme will emphasize new HPV-related cancers and newly discovered human polyomaviruses; advances concerning other pathogens will be incorporated as they arise.

The official language will be English.

The venue will allow casual, prolonged personal interactions, in order to promote in-depth discussions and provide opportunities to establish new collaborations.

San Pietro in Bevagna is close to the town of Manduria, which is located in the province of Taranto in Puglia, South Italy.

We look forward to welcoming you in Manduria!
