Scientific Programme

The Scientific Programme for this Congress is currently under development. Below you can see details of confirmed faculty and preliminary topics. The programme will maintain the plenary session presentation format, with no sessions running in parallel during the meeting. In addition to plenary presentations, the programme will include Keynote Lectures, the Lock Lecture, Industry Sessions and presentations based on abstracts submitted. The congress welcomes abstract submissions, and whilst only a small number can be accepted for oral presentation, we anticipate a sizeable display of Scientific Posters in the Congress Exhibition Hall throughout the Congress. To help you plan your attendance, a Programme Overview is available here.

As in previous years, the programme will be of interest to clinical investigators from across the globe to review current research and discuss its implications for HIV management strategies. Although there have been significant advances in treatment, new challenges have now appeared. This Congress has moved into areas beyond treatment to look at prevention and cure. The role of people living with HIV in treatment decisions and self-management will feature and we look forward to perspectives in the programme from the community.
