Registration for the Australian Respiratory Virology Meeting

Registration is required for Wednesday, 30 October, and is free - this includes morning and afternoon tea, and lunch.

Joint RSV session with the Australian Influenza Symposium

This session will be held on Tuesday afternoon following the Australian Influenza Symposium. You can indicate your attendance at this joint session when you register, below.

Please note: places are limited to 150. Whilst we do not charge a registration fee, there is a cost per head in providing catering, venue hire and associated costs of hosting the event, so "no-shows" can be very disppointing, particularly as we manage a waiting list with people who are keen to attend and who also appreciate a heads up so as they can book flights and accommodation. We ask that you keep these costs and circumstances in mind when you register, and if are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible.

Registration is now closed.
