Default Regional AIDS 2012 "Conference Hubs" (informational webinar 7 Mar. 2012 11:30-12:30 EST)

Visitors or contributors to this site might be interested in attending one of these "hubs" (or possibly, registering to host one).

"Extending the Reach of AIDS 2012 Through Conference Hubs" blog.AIDS.gov 1 March 2012.

With the return of the conference to the U.S., organizers are expecting a larger than usual American delegation at AIDS 2012 . Even so, for many others who could benefit — including many state and local government employees and Federal grantees — travel and registration costs will make participation unaffordable. Fortunately, if you are not able to come to Washington, conference organizers have created a way to bring parts of the conference to you — by organizing a conference hub.

Conference hubs are locally organized meetings or mini-conferences where stakeholders come to view videotaped sessions from AIDS 2012. Typically, these sessions are followed by moderated discussions to allow participants to discuss the local implications of the session content with experts. Participation in hubs is free and conference organizers have created a virtual “Hub in a Box” tool kit designed to make organizing and hosting a hub as easy as possible.

On Wednesday, March 7th from 11:30 to 12:30 EST, conference organizers will host a webinar for potential hosts entitled, “Exploring the Possibilities and Logistics: How to Host an AIDS 2012 Conference Hub.” We suggest you register in advance for the webinar.

The benefits to hub organizers include:

* Engagement with local stakeholders
* Free access to key conference sessions
* Strengthening of local networks through the sharing of new information and lessons learned from AIDS 2012

At previous conferences, hubs have been organized across the globe by entities such as governments, community- and faith-based organizations, clinics, medical schools and universities. Any organization with constituents who could benefit from the information to be presented at the conference can apply to host a hub. And, with a range of sessions to be available for screening, local organizers will be able to tailor their program to the specific interests and needs of their constituents.

More than 20,000. That’s the number of delegates that are expected to attend AIDS 2012. According to organizers, the conference received 11,715 abstracts from scientists around the world seeking to showcase their research at the conference. That is a 15% increase from the 2010 conference in Vienna, Austria. After a rigorous peer review process, the Scientific Programme Committee accepted 3,600 abstracts for presentations. Activity in the Global Village is also up; conference organizers accepted 280 program activity proposals for inclusion in this year’s Global Village, a 27% increase over 2010.
...
On May 23rd at 7:00pm EDT, AIDS 2012 staff will host a webinar to help potential organizers learn how to host an AIDS 2012 conference hub.

This session is a follow-up to the March 7th webinar, “Exploring the Possibilities and Logistics: How to Host an AIDS 2012 Conference Hub.” If you were not able to participate in the earlier webinar, you can access an event recording , PowerPoint presentation (PPT file), and Programme Example (Microsoft Word file).
