Dear colleagues, dear friends

On behalf of European Expert on Rotavirus Vaccination group and European Rotavirus Molecular Biology Group, we would like to invite you to the 6th European Expert Meeting on Rotavirus Vaccination (EEROVAC) for the first time joined together with Rotavirus Molecular Biology Group meeting which will be held April 23rd – 25th 2019 in Riga, Latvia.

The meeting will bring together two important expert groups and scientists, practitioners, public health professionals and other stakeholders to discuss and exchange the most recent research on rotavirus vaccination, epidemiology, and biology not just in Europe, but far beyond its borders. The meeting provides an international forum to share expertise and create new collaborations. It will provide comprehensive updates on the latest advances on rotavirus by leaders in the field. The program will include invited lectures, as well as original oral, poster, and case report presentations.

This year the meeting will take place in Riga.

The Gothic spires that dominate Rīga's cityscape might suggest austerity, but it is the flamboyant art nouveau that forms the flesh and the spirit of this vibrant cosmopolitan city, the largest of all three Baltic capitals. Like all northerners, it is quiet and reserved on the outside, but there is some powerful chemistry going on inside its hip bars, modern art centres, and in the kitchens of its cool experimental restaurants. Standing next to a gulf named after itself, Rīga is a short drive from jet-setting sea resort, Jūrmala, which comes with a stunning white-sand beach. But if you are craving solitude and a pristine environment, gorgeous sea dunes and blueberry-filled forests, begin right outside the city boundaries (by "Lonely Planet").

On behalf of organizers,
