March 20 - 24, 2016: HIV Persistence: Pathogenesis and Eradication (X7)

March 20, 2016 - March 24, 2016
Resort at Squaw Creek
Olympic Valley, California, USA

joint with the meeting on HIV Vaccines (X8)

Despite the clinical success of antiretroviral therapy (ART), every day there are more people newly infected with HIV than those initiating ART. The complexities of dispensing lifelong ART for HIV-infected individuals make it imperative to develop strategies for HIV eradication, or at least to strictly control the virus without daily therapy. The clearance of a retroviral infection is a herculean task and requires unraveling the mechanisms of viral persistence and host immune interactions. Further, ART does not appear to completely mitigate the impact of HIV infection on human health, and a better understanding of the overt and subtle immune pathologies induced by HIV infection is needed. Recent studies of early therapeutic interventions and HIV-resistant cellular therapies have provided new insights into the development of HIV eradication strategies. The meeting will focus on all aspects of HIV persistence and eradication that include: (1) The understanding of persistent HIV infection; (2) Innate defenses against retroviral infection; (3) The interplay of the host inflammatory response and HIV pathogenesis; and (4) Novel concepts for viral eradication. Special attention will be paid to progress in the development of model systems to study latent infection as well as strategies to eradicate it. Emphasis will be placed on new, unpublished findings that will highlight novel insights and creative strategies to develop effective control and eradication of HIV infection.

March 20 - 24, 2016: HIV Vaccines (X8)

March 20, 2016 - March 24, 2016

joint with the meeting on HIV Persistence: Pathogenesis and Eradication (X7)

The development of a safe and effective HIV vaccine remains a major global health priority and a complex problem to solve. Current efforts emphasize an ability to elicit systemic and mucosal antibody responses capable of preventing the acquisition of infection. Evidence from multiple passive transfer experiments in non-human primates, as well as from studies of immunologic correlates of modest efficacy in the RV144 Thai trial, support the notion that both neutralizing and non-neutralizing antibodies have potential to prevent infection. Major advances have been made in understanding the epitopes, structures and evolutionary pathways of broadly neutralizing antibodies, leading to new avenues to pursue for vaccine design. The extraordinary breadth and potency of some recently discovered neutralizing antibodies has generated additional interest in potential therapeutic applications, including cure strategies. There has also been a steady increase in knowledge of other types of antiviral antibodies and their effector functions that may be important for vaccines. This meeting aims to cover a range of topics including: 1) Initial virus transmission events for vaccine intervention, 2) Non-neutralizing antibody correlates of sterilizing immunity; 3) Epitopes, structures and ontogeny of broadly neutralizing antibodies; 4) Novel vaccine concepts for broadly neutralizing antibody induction; and 5) Immunotherapy. Emphasis will be placed on recent unpublished findings in key areas that hold the greatest promise for rapid progress toward an effective vaccine.

July 22 - 28, 2018: International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018)

July 22, 2018 - July 28, 2018
Amsterdam RAI
Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS

The International AIDS Society (IAS) announced that Amsterdam, Netherlands will host the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018). AIDS 2018 will be held on 22-28 July 2018 at the Amsterdam RAI and is expected to bring together some 18,000 participants from around the world.

“The Netherlands is a great example of what happens when a government supports outstanding science and embraces evidence-based HIV programmes in combination with a robust commitment to human rights,” said Chris Beyrer, President of the IAS. “We are delighted to convene the International AIDS Conference in a city and country so committed to fighting the epidemic.”

This is the second time that Amsterdam will host the International AIDS Conference (IAC). The 8th International AIDS Conference was held in the Dutch capital in 1992. The last IAC to be held in Europe was AIDS 2010 in Vienna. Amsterdam will be an important opportunity to measure the progress since then, especially in Eastern Europe where decisive leadership and engagement is critical for an effective response to the epidemic.

“We are honored to host AIDS 2018 and committed to making it a historic event,” said Mr. Lambert Grijns, the Netherlands Ambassador for Sexual and Reproductive Health & Rights and HIV/AIDS. “Amsterdam is a global city and we will ensure the conference reflects the many thousands of people who will attend.”

Amsterdam was selected to host AIDS 2018 following an evaluation of candidate cities conducted by the IAS Governing Council. Bids are reviewed based on three main criteria: impact on the epidemic, conference infrastructure, and freedom of movement and travel for people living with HIV. According to a policy of non-discrimination first adopted by the IAS Governing Council in 1992, the IAS will not hold its conferences in countries that restrict short term entry of people living with HIV, and/or require prospective HIV-positive visitors to declare their HIV status on visa application forms or other documentation required for entry into the country.

The International AIDS Conference was previously held in Melbourne, Australia in 2014. The next conference (AIDS 2016) will be held in Durban, South Africa in July 2016.
