3rd Ringberg Symposium on Giant Virus Biology
After two successful symposia in 2013 and 2015, we are happy to announce the 3rd Ringberg Symposium on Giant Virus Biology. This biennial international scientific gathering is a platform to discuss the genetics, structure, biochemistry, ecology, and evolution of extremely large DNA viruses.
The Symposium will be held from 19 to 22 November 2017 at Ringberg Castle near Tegernsee, Germany, in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps (http://www.schloss-ringberg.mpg.de/home). The meeting starts on Sunday at 3 pm with coffee and cake, and finishes on Wednesday at noon. If you cannot arrive timely on Sunday afternoon, we suggest that you stay in a hotel in Munich for Saturday night. Please see the travel information sheet for further details. For those participants staying at Ringberg Castle, the conference fee of ~360 Euros covers meals and accommodation and can be paid by credit card at the end of the meeting.
The conference fee for people staying at a nearby hotel is ~150 Euros and includes lunches and dinners at Ringberg Castle. Discounts apply to participants from Max Planck institutes. Travel support may be available upon request.
Due to the limited capacity of our conference venue, participation in the Symposium is by invitation only.
