8th International AIDS Society Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2015)

19-22 July 2015 Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

The 8th IAS Conference on HIV Pathogenesis, Treatment and Prevention (IAS 2015) will be held at the Vancouver Convention Centre on 19-22 July 2015 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This biennial forum is the largest open scientific conference on HIV/AIDS related issues and is expected to gather some 6,000 delegates from across the globe.

IAS 2015 will be a unique opportunity for all those involved in the global response to HIV, including scientists, clinicians, public health experts, community leaders, and media professionals, to meet and examine the latest scientific developments in HIV-related research, and explore how such developments can be realistically applied in implementation programmes.

IAS 2015 is organized by the International AIDS Society (IAS), in partnership with the University of British Columbia (UBC) Division of AIDS, based at St. Paul’s Hospital, Providence Health Care. The Division was created in 2007 to bring together, enhance and expand the research, training, service delivery and administration that have evolved over the last two decades within the UBC Department of Medicine and Providence Health Care.

2015 National HIV Prevention Conference

December 6-9, 2015 Atlanta, Georgia

The 2015 National HIV Prevention Conference is a collaboration between several federal agencies, local governments and other organizations. It is the preeminent conference for state and local health departments, community based organizations, federal agencies, researchers, clinicians, people living with HIV and others to share the latest advancements, strategies and accomplishments in HIV prevention and care.

The National HIV Prevention Conference allows for in-person collaboration between researchers and program personnel planning and implementing HIV prevention and care programs.  The conference will bring together more than 3,000 individuals who are working to stop the domestic spread of HIV. It will provide an opportunity to continue refining, improving, and strengthening our nation’s response to HIV.

This four-day conference will include plenary sessions, workshops, roundtables and poster presentations and is a platform for conference participants to engage in rigorous scientific, programmatic, and technology information exchange.

HPV 2015-- 30th International Papillomavirus Conference & Clinical and Public Health Workshops

September 17-21, 2015 Lisbon, Portugal

Join us for the 30th International Papillomavirus Conference & Clinical and Public Health Workshops (HPV 2015) that will be held September 17-21 in Lisbon, Portugal. This year we will focus on HPV and Globalization, exploring new worlds in research as well as new proposals to reduce inequities in global health.

HPV gathers researchers, clinicians and other health professionals to share and exchange research regarding the epidemiology of HPV, virus vaccines, cervical cancer prevention and other papillomavirus associated diseases. We host an international forum that enables the exchange of knowledge between the research and clinical communities showcasing the latest advances in science and practice through state of the art oral and poster presentations.

Mechanisms of HIV Persistence: Implications for a Cure

April 26—May 1, 2015 Boston, Massachusetts

Despite long-term control of HIV replication with cART, HIV persists as silenced integrated DNA in memory CD4 T cells, and possibly in other cellular reservoirs, including naïve cells and macrophages. Low level replenishment of the reservoir via limited cycles of replication, may also contribute to persistence, at least in some patients. Curing HIV infection will only occur if these barriers are reversed, or if host capacity to control HIV indefinitely is improved. A number of promising interventions which might reverse latent infection have been identified, and proof that such drugs affect HIV transcription in vivo provided in pilot clinical trials. The observation that few patients treated during primary infection control durably replication-competent HIV after interrupting therapy suggests host responses might be manipulated, leading to a functional cure. The path forward will require a detailed understanding of the mechanisms of viral latency which could lead to the identification of new drugs, and a better knowledge of the plasticity and dynamics of the main HIV cell reservoirs: CD4 T cells and macrophages. The role of the tissue microenvironment has to be underlined with the major help of non-human primate models. At the 2015 Keystone Symposia meeting on Mechanisms of HIV Persistence: Implications for a Cure, experts from both within and outside the HIV field will present findings from recent advances on immune mechanisms and therapeutic strategies which could lead to HIV cure.

EUROGIN 2015 Congress

Feb 4-7, 2015 Seville, Spain

The EUROGIN 2015 Congress aims at developing a full review of current scientific developments in the field of cervical cancer and human papillomavirus related diseases, raising the public health profile and increasing the need for responsible health services in this area.

The event endeavors to translate scientific and evidence-based research into clinical practice while highlighting the following aspects:

- Recent advances and updated scientific insights in HPV screening, testing and management

- The impact of HPV and associated cancers on public health

- Strategies to prevent and treat HPV related diseases

- Exchanging information on early detection, new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and prevention strategies including screening and HPV vaccination

Speakers include international leaders from academic, government and private organizations, representatives of medical and scientific societies, as well as women's health associations who will discuss and exchange ideas on issues relevant to both individuals and public health
