The journal Vaccine ( is the pre-eminent journal for those interested in vaccines and vaccination.  ISV ( is an international organization that engages, supports, and sustains the professional goals of a diverse membership in all areas relevant to vaccines. The 6th Vaccine & ISV Annual Global Congress ( will be held on October 14-16, 2012 in Shanghai, China. 

The pre-conference Computational Vaccinology Workshop (ICoVax 2012: is a satellite workshop to be held on Oct. 13, Saturday, prior to the general Vaccine & ISV Annual Global Congress. The main objective of the ICoVax workshop is to provide an international platform for researchers and bioinformaticians to report and discuss the most recent developments and ideas in the new exciting field of computational vaccinology and vaccine informatics. The first ICoVax, held last year in Seattle, USA, attracted many attendees worldwide and obtained very positive feedback.

The 2nd ISV pre-conference Computational Vaccinology Workshop (ICoVax 2012) will be held for a full day in Shanghai, the largest and most dynamic city in China. Shanghai is a major center of higher education and R&D in China with over 30 universities and colleges. Many international pharmaceutical companies established their regional and even global R&D centers in the suburb of Shanghai. 

The full-length papers submitted to the workshop through Easychair will be peer-reviewed. Selected top papers will be invited to be revised and published in a peer-review journal. The format of abstract poster presentations is also available.
