Symposium Proposal Notifications

We are organizing the scientific program for the upcoming 35th International Papillomavirus Conference & Basic Science, Clinical Research and Public Health Workshops (IPVC 2023) and welcome Special Interest Satellite Symposium proposals. The 2023 conference theme is “Coming together for HPV elimination”.

Each proposal will be reviewed by the IPVC 2023 Scientific Committee. Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate all proposals due to space and time limitations. It is not possible to provide feedback on the reasons why talks may or may not have been selected.

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 achieving this objective and encourage to include speakers in an early career-stage. The submission form will allow you to indicate which of the speakers is ‘early career’.

Session types: We welcome proposals for Special Satellite Symposium Sessions.

Special Interest Satellite Symposium Sessions: 60 or 90 minutes long, two chairs maximum, 4-5 presentations. Please include the Symposium level and specify the target audience – for beginners or advanced.
