International AIDS Society

Group Registration


Important information

Any group registrations received with less than five persons will be rejected and a request made for each individual participant to register directly through their own conference profile.

The registration fee structure is identical to the structure for individual delegates, which is based on the World Bank Classification for high-income countries and middle/low-income countries.

Group members must be at least 18 years old (as of 22 July 2012). Group members may be asked at any time to present a valid form of identification stating their age.

Group members can not register accompanying persons online. This can either be done onsite or by contacting the AIDS 2012 Registration Department.

As part of the registration, each member is entitled to contribute USD 75 of the registration fee towards one of three options (this is included and will not be an extra cost to you):

  • Two-year IAS membership

    The membership will be activated after the conference and the login details will be sent to the group member by email. If the group member is already an IAS member, the existing membership will be extended by two years. Otherwise, a new membership for two years will be given. IAS membership benefits include:

    • Access to the Online Membership Directory in the Members' Area, to search for and contact other members, and to find job vacancies in the field of HIV and AIDS
    • The possibility to subscribe to the journal AIDS at a 26-50% discount
    • The possibility to receive a 40-80% discount on Health[e]Foundation’s online HIV[e]Education course
    • The electronic IAS Newsletter, IAS Member e-Updates and the latest information on upcoming IAS conferences
    • The opportunity to post upcoming conferences and meetings in your region in the IAS Event Calendar
    • The opportunity to decide who shall govern the IAS by taking part in the IAS Governing Council Elections
    • The right to vote at ordinary and extraordinary General Members’ Meetings
    • The opportunity to participate in and receive results from IAS membership surveys
    • Membership certificate and membership card

  • Conference scholarship fund

    The contribution will support the International Scholarship Programme of the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012).
  • Contribution to the conference international community partners

    The contribution will be equally split between the international community partners of the XIX International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2012).
