Dear future meeting participants,
As you may have noticed, the 28th Brazilian Congress of Virology has adopted a completely redesigned schedule. In previous editions, our meeting started on a Sunday at 2 p.m. and ended in the morning of a Tuesday or Wednesday. In 2017, the opening session of our meeting will start on a Thursday (Sep. 7) at 9 a.m. with the presence of the Directors of the Brazilian Society for Virology.
But why was the schedule changed? Our redesigned schedule provides our meeting with intense action right from the start, with presentations and participant engagement starting on day one. This is the model adopted by great international organizations, such as the American Society for Virology (ASV) and the American Society for Microbiology (ASM).
However, in order for the meeting to be successful, participants will have to arrive in Belo Horizonte by the evening of September 6. And to help participants make it in time for the meeting, the Congress secretariat will be open to welcome attendees on September 6 starting at 9 a.m. We are also preparing a surprise social event scheduled to take place on the evening of September 6. So do not miss it!
We look forward to seeing you in Belo Horizonte.
Organizing Committee of the 28th Brazilian Congress of Virology
