Welcome note

Dear Colleagues,

It was our pleasure to welcoming you to the 31st Annual Meeting of the Society of Virology (GfV) from March 30 to April 2, 2022. When we decided to organize this meeting we had of course been hoping to be able to invite you to the Bavarian capital, Munich, in person.

Owing to the ongoing SARS-CoV-2 pandemic we had to adapt our plans and had  use a hybrid format, combing on-site speakers and audience with a virtual format for this meeting. Short-term developments of the situation in Germany and globally as well as local regulations have had of course strongly influence the final number of participants that attended in person. The 2022 Annual GfV Meeting had devote enough time to SARS-CoV-2 research to allow everybody to catch up with the latest developments and to discuss “hot topics” with national and international experts.

The recently founded „junge GfV“, which focusses on our junior members, organized a round table discussion during this meeting to foster the exchange between all generations and experience levels of virologists.

We are already looking forward to the meeting in Ulm in 2023 and wish you a good time until then.

On behalf of the organizing committee
