The International Committee on Nomenclature of Viruses (ICNV) was established at the Ninth International Congress for Microbiology in Moscow, in July 1966. The second meeting of the Committee was held in Mexico City at the time of the Tenth International Congress for Microbiology in Mexico City in August 1970. Following the decisions of this meeting, the First Report of ICNV, entitled ‘Classification and Nomenclature of Viruses’, has been produced as a monograph, edited by the President of ICNV, Professor P. Wildy, and published in June 1971 by S. Karger, Basel, as No. 5 of its series ‘Monographs in Virology’.

At the meeting in Mexico City the Executive Committee (ECICNV) and its Subcommittees were reconstituted and the composition of ICNV was reorganized. The present Executive Committee met for the first time at the time of the Second International Congress for Virology in Budapest in June 1971. A further meeting of the Executive Committee will be held in 1973. In 1975, coinciding with the Third International Congress for Virology, the ECICNV will meet and there will be a Plenary Session of ICNV.
