18th International European AIDS Conference (EACS 2021)

27–30 October 2021, hybrid, London


The 18th International European AIDS Conference (EACS 2021) ran from 27-30 October 2021 as a hybrid conference – and EACS are to be congratulated for taking this decision.

Approximately a quarter of the more than 3000 delegates attended the ExCel Centre in London, reconnecting for the first time since COVID-19 with interactions that can only come from face-to-face meetings – many commenting on how important this felt.

Other delegates were able to watch all the same sessions simultaneously as a live virtual meeting – with instant access to all content. This means that the conference became immediately available online for delegates. Many of the sessions were also simultaneously translated into Russian.

The programme and abstract book from the meeting are available as open access, but other resources are more complicated, with webcasts behind a paywall.
• (programme)
• (PDF abstract book)
• (ePosters)
• (webcasts – needs EACS membership – from €30 for a year)

Abstracts can also be accessed through the online programme (first link above). For oral sessions this involves click on the day of the presentation and for posters this is through clicking the two elibrary listing in the programme (for Thursday and Friday).
