The AIDS 2018 Conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands will convene the world’s experts to advance knowledge about HIV, present new research findings, and promote and enhance global scientific and community collaborations in synergy with other health and development sectors.
Abstracts may be submitted through a personal conference profile, until 5 February 2018 (23:59 CET). Full submission guidelines are available here.
Abstracts submitted to the conference will go through a blind, peer-reviewed process carried out by an international review panel. Final selection of abstracts will be done by members of the Scientific Program Committee by mid-April.
The highest-scoring abstracts will be selected for presentation in Oral Abstract Sessions or Poster Discussion Sessions. The majority of the selected posters will be displayed in the Poster Exhibition.
Young and/or less experienced abstract submitters may benefit from the Abstract Mentor Program prior to abstract submission.
The Scholarship Program is open to everyone around the world working or volunteering in the field of HIV and AIDS who is at least 16 years of age at the time of the conference. This program provides financial assistance to help people who would otherwise be unable to attend and benefit from the conference
Priority is given to:
- Those whose participation will help enhance their work in their own communities
- Those who are able to assist in the transfer of skills and knowledge acquired at the conference
- Those whose abstract, workshop or Global Village and Youth activity has been selected.
The conference secretariat offers a free Abstract Mentor Program for young or less experienced researchers to benefit from expert mentoring. Learn more and submit your draft abstract today.
