Speakers will present the latest scientific developments across the range of antiviral research, emphasizing the interdisciplinary nature of the field. ICAR provides opportunities for virologists, chemists, clinicians, pharmacologists, biologists and regulatory agency representatives to develop the collaborative relationships needed for the discovery and development of new antiviral therapies. The conference also offers special events to welcome new scientists and help them establish successful careers. ISAR members will strengthen their network of research associates and add new contacts.
The 2020 program will include:
Women in Science Roundtable
The WIS Committee is excited to announce the 8th Annual Women in Science Roundtable at the ICAR meeting in Seattle, Washington. This event is free and open to both women and men. Advance registration is required as space is limited. Please check back later for more details about schedule, program and how to register for this event.
What is PechaKucha?
PechaKucha is a presentation format where you have 20 slides, each on the screen for only 20 seconds. Your slides advance automatically so you have to keep up with the slides, as you won’t have control of the speed. Some tips on a good PechaKucha presentation – incorporate humor, a surprise or something that is unexpected. Bottom line, you want to entertain the team of judges as well as inform!
Why should you compete?
How to sign up?
When you submit your abstract, please indicate that you want to compete during the submission process. Only seven people, as well as an additional three alternates, will be selected. Selection will be based on abstract quality, novelty, and content of the work. Be sure to submit your abstract and sign up early.

Career Development Panel
Please join us for a panel discussion about career opportunities in antiviral research at the 33rd ICAR meeting. This event is open to all ICAR attendees. Advance registration is required as space is limited. Please check back later for more details about schedule, program and how to register for this event.
This session will give graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and other young investigators the opportunity to present their posters as short talks. Those wishing to be considered for this session should prepare 3-4 slides summarizing their poster, and the presenters will be chosen after review of the posters. Two presenters will be selected as co-chairs.
Poster Award Competition
ISAR will present awards for excellence in scientific poster presentations at the annual Conference. The awards will be presented to recognize young investigators for their outstanding contributions to antiviral research. Awards will be based on criteria including scientific excellence, innovative research methodology, clarity and organization of presentation materials, and competence of the investigator in responding to the poster audience. Award recipients will be chosen by the Poster Award Subcommittee, a panel of ISAR members; with first and second place prizes presented to the winners. Click here for submission details.
The International Society for Antiviral Research (ISAR) is an internationally recognized organization for scientists involved in basic, applied, and clinical aspects of antiviral research. The Society main event is the annual International Conference on Antiviral Research (ICAR), a truly interdisciplinary meeting which attracts the interest of chemists, biologists, and clinicians.
