Affiliated Independent Events

Affiliated Independent Events applications are now closed. Please note that those events submitted after 20 April are not guaranteed to appear in the printed programme but will still appear on the website.

Affiliated Independent Events take place outside the conference venue at times that do not conflict with the conference programme. All Affiliated Independent Events must be approved by the XIX International AIDS Conference organizers.

Criteria for selection as an official Affiliated Independent Event include:
  • Affiliated Independent Events should reflect and/or support the vision and goals of the conference.
  • Affiliated Independent Events should address HIV/AIDS, Co-infections or issues faced by individuals or organizations affected by or responding to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
  • The Affiliated Independent Event programme should reflect conference policies and goals of diversity and inclusion.
Although there is no processing or sponsorship fee associated with Affiliated Independent Events, individuals requesting event affiliation should be registered attendees for AIDS 2012.

As a service to Affiliated Independent Events organizers, all approved events will be published in the final conference programme and on the AIDS 2012 website.

The conference organizers reserve the right to approve or reject any Affiliated Independent Event application, and may decline a request, wholly or partially that, in its opinion, is not in keeping with the character or purpose of the XIX International AIDS Conference. The XIX International AIDS Conference is not responsible for the final content or the organization of any such event, which are the responsibilities of the event organizers.

Organizations wishing to host an Affiliated Independent Event in cooperation with AIDS 2012 may now apply online. The Affiliated Independent Events application form is accessible through your conference profile.
