COVID-19 Update

Currently, the CMV Public Health and Policy (CMV-PHP) Conference planning committee will continue to move forward with preparations for the 2020 CMV-PHP Conference that will be held in Ottawa, Ontario August 30-September 1. We assure you that the safety and security of our attendees, exhibitors, presenters, and staff are our top priority as we navigate the unprecedented situation that COVID-19 presents across the world.

Conference planning staff are monitoring restrictions being placed on travel to and within Canada as well as restrictions and guidelines for large group meetings from the Public Health Agency of Canada (Canada), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (USA), and the World Health Organization (worldwide).

You may be considering whether or not to attend the conference and we would like to ask you to allow some time before making any final decisions. We have made some contingency arrangements to help set your mind at ease.

  • Abstracts are due on April 20, 2020. Please consider submitting an abstract as we plan on moving forward with the conference either in person or virtually. Submit your abstract here.
  • Conference registration is planned to open on May 1st with refunds possible through July 29 (less a 25% processing fee).

We are very hopeful that the efforts happening all over the world to address and contain this virus will allow us all to come together in Ottawa. Please reach out to us with any questions at info@cmvconference.org.


The goal of the Congenital CMV conference is to present the latest research on diagnosis and treatment, raise awareness, delineate prevention efforts, provide information about early intervention options, and disseminate family support resources in an effort to reduce the number of babies born with CMV and connect families affected by CMV with the resources they need to improve their quality of life.

With your help, we can reduce the number of babies born with CMV!
