AIDS 2022 will take place from 29 July to 2 August 2022, with pre-conference meetings beginning on 27 July 2022. For the first time, the world’s largest conference on HIV and AIDS will be hosted in-person in Montreal, Canada, as well as virtually, to make it accessible to as many people as possible.

All registrations for AIDS 2022 must be submitted through the online registration form.

Group registration is applicable for 5 or more persons.

Media registration is free for qualified individuals attending AIDS 2022 as journalists, photographers, videographers and community educators.

Scholarships open on 1 December. If you are submitting a scholarship application, please do not submit a separate conference registration until you receive a notification from the AIDS 2022 Scholarship team.

Registration fees

To encourage the broadest participation in the conference, the IAS has adjusted the registration fees to make the conference as accessible as possible.

The conference offers a four-tiered fee structure, with lower registration fees for delegates from upper-middle-income countries, lower-middle-income countries and low-income countries (based on the World Bank Classification) and students/youth/postdocs.

To participate in AIDS 2022, delegates and student/youth/postdocs can choose between two registration formats:

In-person plus virtual conference registration includes:

  • In-person access to all conference sessions, satellite sessions, poster discussion sessions, the exhibition, the Global Village and pre-conference meetings
  • Online access to all conference sessions, satellite sessions and pre-conference meetings streamed live on the virtual platform, session recordings and on-demand content, the virtual exhibition, e-posters and the virtual Global Village throughout the conference and after

Virtual conference registration includes:

  • Online access to all conference sessions, satellite sessions and pre-conference meetings streamed live on the virtual platform, session recordings and on-demand content, the virtual exhibition, e-posters and the virtual Global Village throughout the conference and after

You are entitled to put USD 75 of your registration fee towards one of the following three options:

  • Two-year IAS membership: The two-year IAS membership will be activated following the conference or, if you are already an IAS Member, the existing membership will be extended by two years. For more information, take a look at the IAS membership benefits.
  • Conference scholarship fund: Your contribution will support the International AIDS Conference Scholarship Programme.
  • AIDS 2022 civil society partners: Your contribution will be equally split between the AIDS 2022 civil society partners to support outreach and engagement efforts at the community level.
