IAS 2023

Conference embargo policy


All research presented at IAS 2023, the 12th IAS Conference on HIV Science, is embargoed

alternative text

The policy specifies that while authors may publish the fact that their abstract has been selected for inclusion in the conference programme, they may NOT share data from the abstract in any form (including print, broadcast or online publication, media release or conference presentation) before its official release at IAS 2023.

As is the case with most scientific and medical conferences, IAS 2023 abstracts are released to delegates and media representatives under a strict embargo policy.

Embargo breaks by presenters

A conference committee will review any potential cases of embargo breaks by presenters. Embargo breaks by presenters may result in the removal of the abstract in question from the conference programme. This includes publication of the abstract data in a journal or public outlet before presentation at the conference.
