Major Scientific AIDS Conference, Paris July 13-16; Reports Online

June 27, 2003

The 2nd IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis and Treatment will take place July 13-16, 2003, in Paris. This conference is organized by the International AIDS Society (IAS), which also puts on the International AIDS Conference, which happens in even-numbered years (the next one will be near Bangkok, Thailand, in July 2004).

The Paris conference has been called "the international forum that brings together scientists and clinical researchers working on HIV/AIDS from both the developed and developing world, forging alliances to jointly address the most pressing issues in the combat against this global emergency" (quote from Professor Joep Lange, chairman of the International AIDS Society). [Note: the International AIDS Society should not be confused with the International AIDS Society-USA, an unrelated organization.]

The final program of the Paris conference was posted June 30 at www.ias2003.org/. The 360-page document (a 3 megabyte file) can be searched on your computer for a keyword or phrase, such as a medical term, drug name, or presenter's name.

Two official Internet providers for the conference are noted on page 15 of the program:

  • Kaisernetwork.org will provide Webcasts of the plenary talks and some of the other major sessions. You can find them at: www.kaisernetwork.org/paris2003 or through the IAS Web site above.

  • Medscape will provide conference coverage and continuing medical education programs based on this conference. See: www.medscape.com/hiv. Note: free registration is required.

On June 30 Medscape said its coverage will include "daily news and expert commentary; an executive summary of the conference that will be published within one week of the conference's close; and a series of approximately 15 topical reviews, which will be available to physicians for continuing medical education credit, that will be published within 3 weeks following the meeting. Slide kits and slide-based presentations of selected conference sessions will also be published on Medscape at that time."
