Please get in touch with Virus Bulletin (email [email protected]) if you experience any problems with making your hotel booking.
The Novotel London West is offering VB2023 delegates a special booking rate of £150/night (inclusive of taxes and breakfast).
The hotel’s cancellation policy is as follows:
No cancellation charge applies prior to 14:00 (local time), up to 7 days prior to arrival. Beyond that time, the amount due is not refundable, even if the booking is cancelled or modified.
Whilst speakers have been asked to commit to presenting their papers in person in London, should they find themselves at the last minute unable to travel, we will have a plan in place for them to present (provided they are able) in virtual format, either by means of a recording or via a live web link (depending on individual circumstances).
Sessions in the Green room and the Red room will be recorded, and will be made available to delegates for viewing after the conference (provided permission has been granted by the speaker).
The first round of selections for the VB2023 programme is already complete, however the call for last-minute papers (presentations that deal with up-to-the-minute topics) is now open (until 2 September).
We are also accepting proposals for poster presentations.
Poster presentations are a great way to engage with your peers, share ideas, get feedback, and learn, all in an informal setting. Find out more here.
Probably. We can’t be sure at this stage what scope we will have for guest tickets at the social functions but we plan to try our best. Please tell us if you’d like to bring a guest and we will see what we can do!
Please advise VB of any specific dietary requirements you have, and we will pass the information on to the conference venue and request that provisions be made. However, note that it is each individual delegate’s responsibility to inform the VB2023 Conference venue regarding any food allergies and/or intolerances that the delegate may have. For the avoidance of doubt, it is not VB’s responsibility to collect such information or to transmit details to the conference venue and/or hotel. VB hereby excludes liability for any delegate’s failure to inform the conference venue and/or hotel of any such food allergies and/or intolerances.
