The 6th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2011) will examine basic, clinical and prevention sciences as well as operations and implementation research. Reflecting a very strict selection procedure which ensures an outstanding quality of science at the conference, 35% of over 3,000 submitted abstracts have been chosen for presentation. Drug policy will be prominent at IAS 2011, highlighted by the plenary session Ending HIV Transmission Among Drug Users by 2015 by Nora VOLKOW, USA.

Satellite meetings and exhibition space applications now open

Industry-sponsored satellite meetings will take place all day on Sunday, 17 July and in the mornings and evenings on the remaining days, Monday to Wednesday, 18-20 July. Satellite meetings take place in the conference centre but are fully organized and coordinated by the organization hosting the satellite. The contents and speakers of the satellite meetings will be reviewed by the programme committee to ensure that they meet the scientific and ethical principles of the conference.

A limited number of satellite meetings sponsored by non-commercial organizations will be available during the conference. Please note that there are no opportunities for commercial satellites other than those organized by Major Industry Sponsors.
