4th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention, 22-25 July 2007, Sydney
Over 5,000 delegates from 133 countries registered for the meeting this year. For attendees from Europe, Africa and the US, the distance and cost probably limited attendance to the meeting. For those lucky enough to be able to attend, the meeting included a wealth of new data in many aspects of HIV research. Over 3,100 original abstracts were submitted and 978 abstracts were accepted for oral or poster presentation.
It is also important and encouraging to see that the IAS has invested sufficient resources to ensure high quality internet access to the most important aspects of the meeting. Web casts are available for many plenary and oral presentations, including the late breaker sessions and including the questions and panel discussions afterwards. Most of these studies have links to the powerpoint slides and an email link to the main author. Additionally, MP3 audio recordings and transcriptions for many of the sessions are also online.
As with all reports and summaries, readers are encouraged to go directly to the source material for more details.
