General Information Guide Now Available to Help You Navigate AIDS 2012

May 17, 2012

General Information Guide Now Available to Help You Navigate AIDS 2012

With over 20,000 participants and more than 250 sessions, you may be starting to wonder how you will navigate AIDS 2012. This week, conference organizers released the General Information Guide to help you with your planning. The Guide contains a wealth of practical information, including details about on-site registration and check-in, a convention center map, and tips for getting around Washington, DC. The full list of categories covered in the Guide are:

  • Conference Overview
  • Conference Practicalities
  • Business Information
  • Organizers and Partners
  • Affiliated Independent events
  • Exhibition
  • Satellites
  • Tours and Programmes

The General Information Guide does not provide a detailed schedule of sessions and events (that will be available on June 8 through the online Programme-at-a-Glance). Use this time to get a lay of the land before you map out what sessions or satellites you will attend, or which webcasts you will view.

We also want to draw your attention to an important deadline for AIDS 2012. The deadline for submitting late breaker abstracts for the conference is Tuesday, May 22. We encourage authors to visit the conference website to review submission guidelines.
