The 12th Vaccine Congress was organised by Elsevier from 16 to 19 September 2018 in Budapest, Hungary. The Vaccine Congress is complimentary to the journal Vaccine, a leading journal for scientists interested in vaccinology.
The Congress was attended by over 250 participants from academia, research institutions, ministries of health and industry. In addition to the plenary sessions, break-out and poster sessions, a workshop was organized on "Author/Reviewer/Grant writing".
There was also an opportunity to meet the editors of the journal Vaccine for a speed review of draft papers.
