CAHR 2011 - Program Updates and Early Bird Deadline Reminder
The Conference Organizing Committee for the 20th Annual Canadian Conference on HIV/AIDS Research (CAHR 2011) is delighted to announce
that the Scientific Program has been finalized and author acceptance notices have been sent out. Thanks to all who submitted and help
set a new CAHR record for the number of submitted abstracts!
Complete details on all keynote speakers, including Mark Wainberg lecturer Dr. James Orbinski and CAHR Plenary Speaker Dr. Stephen Moses,
can be found on the CAHR 2011 website .
The committee is especially excited about a special invited session entitled "Ending HIV By 2020: Mission Possible?" featuring a
diverse line-up of speakers including Chief Public Health Officer David Butler-Jones, which will take place on the Saturday. Panelists will be asked
how they would end HIV or HIV incidence in Canada by 2020 from the different perspectives of their field (Biomedical, Public Health, Health Economics,
Policy, and Community). This session will be a conference highlight and sure to spark a lively debate that will carry over to the Gala Party that evening.
Don't forget that this year's conference takes place almost a month earlier than last year, which means the Early Bird registration deadline
of February 25 th is almost here. Register by February 25 th to save on your fee, and book your accommodation at the
Westin Harbour Castle before March 11 th to take advantage of the reduced conference rate. There are several interesting ancillary meetings taking place on the Wednesday and Thursday, including the fourth
annual New Researcher Workshop , so
plan to arrive early.
Please join us in thanking our sponsors for their generous support.
We look forward to seeing you in April for a very innovative and dynamic conference.
