Abstract

Virology Division News 1463 M. A. Mayo Scottish Crop Research Institute, Dundee, U.K. The following two papers [1, 4] have been submitted recently in advance of the Internation- al Virology Congress (ICV) that is to be held in Paris in July of this year. The authors base their proposals on papers that have appeared in the last two years concerning virus names [2, 3, 5, 7–9]. Both authors suggest that ICTV should make substantial changes to the existing procedures laid out in the International Code of Virus Classification and Nomen- clature [6, 10] for the naming of virus species. The papers are published here to inform discussions that look set to take place at the ICV. ICTV operates on behalf of all virologists and so it is important that virologists make their views known to ICTV. There will be a Taxonomy Workshop at the ICV and in this, in informal discussions, or at the ICTV Plenary Session, there should be opportunities for the ICTV Executive Committee to be made aware of virologists’ feelings. Opinions can also be posted on the public page of the ICTV web site (http://www.danforthcenter.org/iltab/ICTVnet or http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ICTV/).
