We are pleased to report that the next gathering will take place at the Westin Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia, USA, from November 12 through 16. For those not familiar with this locale, the Buckhead area is 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta, a lively district surrounded by an abundance of restaurants, shops and nearby attractions.  The area is easily accessible from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson airport via MARTA public transportation system or a 14 mile taxi/Uber or Lyft ride directly to the hotel.

Walter Royal, III, M.D., chair of the local committee, and members Margo Brinton, Ph.D., James Sejvar, M.D, and Bill Tyor, M.D., along with the ISNV meeting committee have been working together on an exciting agenda which will feature participants from the Center for Disease Control and Emory Center for AIDS Research who will report on innovative research from their prominent groups.

In addition to showcasing the local talent, the meeting will continue to highlight some of the most exciting areas of research in Neurovirology including such hot topics as Aging with Chronic Viruses, Brain-Gut Connection, Therapeutic Targeting, and Biomarkers of neurodegeneration. As in previous years, the sessions will be comprised of invited plenary speakers and short talks from selected abstracts where cutting-edge research has been identified by the Abstract Review Committee.

As always, in recognition and support of our rising young scientists, we will extend a large number of travel awards to those who exhibit excellence in scientific research in various topics relative to the program.

From the opening reception through the abstract talks, poster session and informal gatherings with other leaders in the field, attendees will be immersed in an educational experience which can only be had at an ISNV conference! We encourage you all to be ambassadors of ISNV by enhancing the visibility of this exciting educational and research exchange opportunity to your students, trainees, and colleagues. The overall strength of the Society rests with an active membership across the United States and with our international colleagues located in many countries around the world.

Please check the ISNV website for updates on the call for abstracts, lodging, and registration.
We look forward to seeing everyone in November!
