Any "community" member who wants to attend the 8th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, February 4-8, 2001, in Chicago, must act now. You cannot get into this conference by paying at the door. If you write for a well-known AIDS "community newsletter," you can probably get in through the "community press" category, but the registration deadline is Friday, November 17, 2000. If you are an AIDS advocate or activist not associated with a publication, you may need to use the "scholarship" route (even if you do not need the money); deadline for these scholarship applications is also November 17, 2000. (AIDS Treatment News published Retroviruses conference deadlines on September 22, 2000, but did not have the press and scholarship deadlines at that time.)
Mainstream press have longer -- until December 31, 2000 or until the press slots are filled, whichever happens first. Researchers and clinicians without papers accepted for presentation at the meeting can apply starting Friday, December 1, 2000 -- and must apply as soon as possible at that time. These doctors and scientists should remember to send their faxes to reserve a place at this conference on World AIDS Day (December 1, 2000).
Instructions for these and other application processes are at http://www.retroconference.org
