The 35th International Papillomavirus Conference & Basic Science, Clinical and Public Health Workshops (IPVC 2023) – will once again gather researchers, clinicians and other health professionals to share knowledge and ideas on papillomaviruses and their associated diseases, from basic science to global health impact. By harnessing the power of innovation from HPV research, we can deliver on global prevention and control of HPV-related disease.

The conference will be held on March 27-31, 2023 in Kyoto, Japan. We are very much hoping this will be a face-to-face meeting. This will provide the opportunity to meet with colleagues again, but also to experience the flavour of the Japanese culture from the ancient city of Kyoto, particularly as the last meeting in Japan was in 1984. We are very excited to organise this conference in Japan, especially as Japan moves forwards to reintroducing HPV vaccination and considers a change from cytology to HPV cervical screening.

The tagline for the conference is “Coming Together for HPV Elimination”. In line with the IPVS mission of addressing the most recent advances across the spectrum of PV research, conference topics will include:

Expanding scientific knowledge to benefit the whole community
Prevention of HPV infection and their associated diseases and cancers especially cervical cancer
The epidemiology and molecular biology of PVs
Animal models for the study of papillomavirus disease
Basic immunology and pathogenesis of PVs
Therapeutic and prophylactic vaccines
Changes in screening and HPV vaccination in Japan
With the overarching theme “Translation of research, new discoveries and education into clinical practice and public health to eliminate HPV and related diseases globally”, conference participants will hear about the latest research findings, scientific news, best practice updates and get opportunities for educational and networking exchanges.

The conference will be structured around 3 main tracks: Basic science, Clinical Research and Public Health, Epidemiology, & Implementation Science. The Scientific Committee is working hard to assemble an excellent line-up of speakers across workshops, keynote and plenary lectures but you can also expect to hear about the latest research results with the oral and poster sessions covering papillomavirus (PV)-related topics from basic science to global health impact.
