Join us 18-20 April 2018 for the 4th International Symposium on Neglected Influenza Viruses.
This meeting will immediately follow the 10th International Symposium on Avian Influenza 15-18 April at the same venue, the Grand Hotel, Brighton, UK.

It will retain the format, and build on the success of the previous NIV symposiums held in Atlanta 2015, Dublin 2013 and Florida in 2010. It will explore the latest data on surveillance and disease investigation, virus transmission and control, clinical and experimental virology, and emerging issues and new developments related to swine, equine, canine and other non-human/non-avian influenza viruses.                                                                                                                   

Goals and Objectives

  • To share knowledge of swine, equine, canine and marine mammal and non-human/non-avian influenza viruses across continents and disciplines.
  • To promote interaction among scientists interested in non-human/non-avian influenza viruses whose work may not regularly receive international attention.
