3rd IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis and Treatment, 24-27 July 2005, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

This issue of HTB includes reports from this biannual meeting that this year attracted close to 5000 registered delegates.

As with many conferences now, many sessions can be viewed on the internet and provide an excellent opportunity for people who unable to attend the meeting.

Daily conference coverage including webcasts and transcripts of plenary sessions, select press conferences and other sessions, and the opening and closing ceremonies, has been archived and is available for viewing on:
with links to this site from the IAS conference website:

Abstracts from the meeting are also available to search online although finding them is difficult until AEGiS have completed their archive. Some links from the online programme will access the powerpoint slide used for oral presentations but not the abstracts. The IAS main website also hasn’t added this years meeting to website. Abstracts can be accessed free online in a number of ways:

  1. Via the conference schedule planner:
    Links via the ‘programme at a glance’ planner to each section of the programme, include online links to most of the individual abstracts and some of the powerpoint presentations used for the oral sessions.
  2. Via the IAS online abstract archieve:
  3. Using AEGiS conference database:

By far the easiest way will be to use the AEGiS online conference database, and although the full programme had not been archived by the time we went to press, it is expected to be available shortly. Careful proofing undertaken by AEGiS often means that many abstracts are more accurate on this excellent non commercial website.
