Seattle-lite: pre-conference workshops – watch online

New CROI logo 2017

Simon Collins, HIV i-Base

The commitment to providing all presentations online as open access educational resources is one of the most impressive aspect of the annual CROI meetings.

Options include to watch the presentations with slides, download audio only or as podcasts, pause, repeat, enlarge slides to catch the details – and that this now becomes live on the same day.

And every year, before the main conference, state-or-the-art lectures provide sharp overviews of key subjects. Each lecture reviews current knowledge on the subject and sets the background for the new research that will be presented during the main conference.

So these lectures are already online – and are an excellent way to spend an hour or two to sharpen your knowledge.
