Retroviruses Scholarship, Community Press, Other Deadlines Soon

October 18, 2002

The annual Retroviruses conference, one of the world's most important scientific meetings on HIV, will not take place until February 2003, but scholarship and other deadlines are approaching. For community members without an accepted scientific abstract, the scholarship or community press applications are the only way to get into this meeting. Therefore some will need to apply for the scholarship whether or not they need the money.

This year the 10th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections will be held in Boston for the first time, at the Hynes Convention Center, February 10-14, 2003.


Deadlines by Date

  • For scientists, abstracts are due October 23 at 5:30 Eastern time (except late breakers).
