Late Breaker

Late Breaker deadline: Friday 14 August 2020
To be eligible to submit a late breaker, the submitter must sent a letter of intent detailing the working title of the abstract, a short summary, and the reason why the late breaker request is being made by the regular deadline of Friday 26 June 2020. Only when this letter is acknowledged by the secretariat will a late breaker be considered.

All accepted abstracts for this Congress are published as a supplement to the Journal of the International AIDS Society.


Encore abstracts will be considered by the Committee. These abstracts, if scoring highly during peer review are unlikely to receive an oral presentation in the congress scientific programme. Abstracts scoring highly are however likely to receive a ‘thistle’ award on the poster/board and a Poster Certificate on-site at the Congress

If a submitted abstract is accepted for presentation, one of the authors on the abstract will be required to register for the congress and present the abstract. All abstracts will be considered for either oral or poster presentation unless you specifically opt for ‘poster only’ during the submission process.
