Dear viroid researcher,

we would like to invite you to participate in a four-day conference

Viroid diseases and molecular mechanisms of viroid pathogenesis

The conference will take place from

June 25—28, 2015

at the Institute of Plant Molecular Biology (IPMB), Biology Centre of the Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) in České Budějovice (Budweis).

Abstracts to all topics of viroid research are welcome. The program will contain oral presentations and posters to cover all aspects of research on viroids.

We plan to have four sessions with oral presentations on Friday (June 26th), Saturday (June 27th), and Sunday morning (June 28th). On Thursday (June 25th) we will organize a welcome party and on Friday afternoon a visit of the Budweiser brewery.
