ICVB 2021 : International Conference on Viral Budding

Amsterdam, The Netherlands
February 8 - 9, 2021

Call for Papers

ICVB 2021 : International Conference on Viral Budding is the premier interdisciplinary platform for the presentation of new advances and research results in the fields of Viral Budding. The conference will bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and scholars in the domain of interest from around the world. Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
  • Viral proteins that promote budding
  • Host proteins that promote/inhibit budding
  • Virus-host interactions/complexes relevant to budding
  • Budding mechanisms of both RNA and DNA viruses
  • Budding antagonists
  • Compounds with antiviral (antibudding) activity
  • Novel assays to identify budding inhibitors
  • Innate immune interactions triggered during virus budding
  • Cytoskeletal interactions and enveloped virus assembly
  • Role of lipids, microdomains, and membrane curvature in budding
  • Reconstitution of membrane curvature and budding in vitro
  • New imaging techniques for visualizing virus budding
  • Intracellular transport of assembly complexes
  • Use of animal models (e.g., knockout mice) to study virus budding
