The following sessions are open to all conference attendees:

The full conference agenda is now posted online. Highlights include:

  • Interactive poster sessions with authors on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
  • Plenary sessions on program science, social and behavioral issues, global health systems, and global challenges in bacterial STIs.
If you’d like to take advantage of the special hotel rate for conference attendees, remember to make hotel reservations before the end of the day, as the negotiated rate will increase after May 7.  If you are not able to join us in Atlanta, you can still be part of the conference by following the #STDConf14 hashtag on Twitter.
Special Note For Presenters:
Colleagues hosting oral presentations will have the opportunity to upload their slides before the conference. An email with further instructions will be sent in the near future.
Poster presenters should plan to be available from 12:00pm to 1:30pm on Tuesday, June 10 and Wednesday, June 11 to answer questions from Conference attendees.
Additional information for presenters- including recommended formatting for slides and posters- is available on the Information for Presenters section of the Conference website.
