See below for a sample of some important conferences of HIV/AIDS.
Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI)
The Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) was established in 1993 to provide a forum for basic scientists and clinical investigators to present, discuss, and critique their investigations into the epidemiology and biology of human retroviruses and associated diseases. The synergy of basic science and clinical investigation has been a major contributor to the success of the meeting. CROI is the preeminent HIV research meeting in the world and attracts more than 4,000 HIV/AIDS research leaders internationally. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for researchers to translate their laboratory and clinical findings into tangible progress against the HIV pandemic. CROI has facilitated the presentation of important discoveries in the field, thereby ultimately accelerating progress in HIV/AIDS research.
International AIDS Society
The International AIDS Society is the world’s leading independent association of HIV professionals. Education, networking and the promotion of best practice are essential to enhancing the response to HIV/AIDS. Through the platforms of the IAS conferences we provide opportunities to identify gaps, share experience, and increase knowledge and expertise of professionals working in HIV/ AIDS. The IAS is the custodian of the International AIDS Conference, the largest regular conference on any health or development issue. These prestigious conferences provide a unique forum for the interaction of science, community and leadership, and strengthen an evidence-based policy and programmatic response to the epidemic. The conferences also provide an opportunity to intensify political and financial commitments to AIDS, and include the largest international conference scholarship programme in HIV/AIDS. The IAS also organizes the IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention.
Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC)
The American Society for Microbiology is the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world. Membership has grown from 59 scientists in 1899 to more than 39,000 members today, with more than one third located outside the United States. The members represent 26 disciplines of microbiological specialization plus a division for microbiology educators. Eligibility for membership is open to any person who is interested in microbiology and holds at least a bachelor's degree or equivalent experience in microbiology or related field. Many members hold advanced degrees, including a large number at the master's, PhD, ScD, DrPH and MD level. A regularly matriculated student of microbiology or a related field is eligible to become a Student Member. There are also separate membership categories for postdoctoral fellows in the early years of a career.
