Dear Colleagues and Partners, Online registration is now open for the upcoming scientific meeting on vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) – ‘VDPVs and their Implications: State of the Art’ – on 30 May to 1 June 2012 at the International Conference Centre in Geneva, Switzerland. The meeting is being organized by the World Health Organization (WHO), in collaboration with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Ministry of Health, Japan. WHO will sponsor a limited number of attendees (primarily speakers). Additionally, a number of spaces will be reserved for open participation based on a first come/first serve basis (exclusively for attendees able to fully fund their own participation). The online registration will remain open until Friday 4 May, after which we will distribute email confirmations to all registered participants.
