Symposium Proposal Notifications

All proposals will undergo a consistent and meticulous review by the Scientific committee when being considered for a session in the scientific program.

Proposal Submission is Closed

We are organizing the scientific program for the upcoming 36th International Papillomavirus Conference & Basic, Clinical and Public Health Scientific Workshops (IPVC 2024) and welcome proposals for Special Interest Satellite Symposia.

The 2024 conference theme is “Equitable, evidence-based approaches to HPV disease”.

Session types: A wide range of proposals covering the fields of basic science, public health and clinical science will be considered.

Session structure: The program can accommodate slots that are 60 or 90 minutes long; two chairs maximum and 3-5 presentations.

Proposals will be vetted and accepted based on scientific rigor and topical relevance to the conference for a limited spot in the Scientific program.

IPVS aims to have a program that is balanced for gender and geography (with a maximum of two speakers/chairs from the same nationality). We appreciate all proposals from the HPV community that help in achieving this objective and encourage proposers to include speakers at an early career-stage. The submission form will allow you to indicate which of the speakers is ‘early career’.
