By The International AIDS Society,

IAS – The International AIDS Society – leads collective action on every front of the global HIV response through its membership base, scientific authority and convening power.

Founded in 1988, the IAS is the world’s largest association of HIV professionals, with members in more than 170 countries. Working with its members, the IAS advocates and drives urgent action to reduce the impact of HIV. The IAS is also the steward of the world’s most prestigious HIV conferences: the International AIDS Conference, the IAS Conference on HIV Science, and the HIV Research for Prevention Conference. In light of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, IAS also convened two abstract driven COVID-19 conferences, in July 2020 and February 2021.

This biennial conference presents the critical advances in basic, clinical and operational research that moves science into policy and practice. Through its open and inclusive programme development, the meeting sets the gold standard of HIV research featuring highly diverse and cutting-edge studies. IAS 2021 participants can expect a full conference experience via an easy-to-use digital platform that connects researchers, health care providers, advocates and policy makers. Additionally, a “local partner hub” will convene locally based experts in the original host city of Berlin, in accordance with local health advice and regulations.

Take a first look at the conference schedule featuring daily Prime Sessions, on-demand Oral Abstracts and E-posters, a dedicated IAS Channel, activities from our local partner hub in Berlin, and much more. In recognition of Berlin as the original host city, the conference programme will follow Central European Standard Time (CEST)
