Information Regarding Abstracts

The programme of the parallel sessions of the VI International Eastern Europe and Central Asia AIDS Conference (EECAAC 2018) will include presentations selected from submitted abstracts.

Participants of the conference are invited to submit abstracts (concise descriptions) of their research or selected topic.
If the participant wishes to present his abstract for an oral presentation, he should choose the option “oral presentation.” Regardless of the inclusion of an oral report in the program, submitted abstracts will be included in the collection of abstracts of EECAAC 2018. If a participant chooses to not be considered for an oral presentation, the option “abstract for publication” should be chosen. It is also possible to apply for a poster presentation.

Oral presentation, abstracts and poster presentations should focus on one of the predetermined topics outlined by the programme committees of the EECAAC 2018 within the tracks of “Science and Medicine,” “Effective Prevention,” “International Development Assistance,” and “Civil Society.”
