Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee and Board of the International Papillomavirus Society (IPVS), we are very pleased to invite you to participate in the 33rd International Papillomavirus Conference & Basic Science, Clinical and Public Health Workshops which will be held virtually, from July 20-24, 2020.

Our conference theme is “Science and education for action against HPV” and through workshops, invited lectures, and oral and poster sessions presenting the latest research results, the conference will cover papillomavirus (PV)-related topics from basic science to global health impact. We will be paying special attention to HPV prevention and control in populations that are most vulnerable to HPV disease worldwide, including those in Low and Middle Income Countries.

In line with the IPVS mission of addressing the most recent advances across the spectrum of PV research, conference themes will include the epidemiology and molecular biology of PVs; animal models for the study of papillomavirus disease; basic immunology and pathogenesis of PVs; therapeutic and prophylactic vaccines; prevention of HPV associated cancers particularly cervical cancer and other PV-associated diseases, promotion of the spread of the scientific knowledge to benefit the whole community. Our overarching theme will be harnessing the power of innovation from HPV research to deliver globally prevention and control of HPV-related disease.

Yours sincerely,
