We hope to see you at the next event!
The annual Vaccine & ISV Annual Global Congress, co-organized by the Vaccine journal and the International Society for Vaccines (ISV), is the largest non-commercial conference in the vaccine field and attended by vaccine experts and researchers around the world. The journal Vaccine (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/vaccine/) is the pre-eminent journal for those interested in vaccines and vaccination. ISV (http://www.isv-online.org/) is an international organization that engages, supports, and sustains the professional goals of a diverse membership in all areas relevant to vaccines. The 7th Vaccine & ISV Annual Global Congress (http://www.vaccinecongress.com/) was held on October 27-29 , 2013 at Sitges, Barcelona, Spain.
The pre-conference Computational Vaccinology Workshop (ICoVax 2013) was a satellite workshop held on Oct. 26, 2013, prior to the general Vaccine & ISV Annual Global Congress. The main objective of the ICoVax workshop is to provide an international platform for researchers and bioinformaticians to report, share, and discuss the most recent developments, scientific findings, and ideas in the new exciting field of computational vaccinology and vaccine informatics. This is also a platform for making new friends and building up potential collaborations. The first ICoVax held in 2011 in Seattle, USA, and the second ICoVax2012 in Shanghai China, attracted many attendees worldwide and obtained very positive feedback.
The full-length papers were submitted to the ICoVax 2013 workshop through Easychair and were peer-reviewed.
