The 2020 United States Conference on HIV/ AIDS has decided to go to a virtual platform to healthily convene during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 2020 USCHA planning committee has re-issued the Call for Abstracts to solicit proposals from people working in the field of HIV/AIDS interested in convening a workshop at the Virtual USCHA. When preparing submissions, please follow all guidelines outlined in this site and submit required materials on or before July 17, 2020, by 5:00 p.m. PST. The committee will notify everyone accepted as presenters well in advance of the conference dates and send them information concerning all applicable registration and presentation confirmation details.
These webinars were produced when we were still planning an in-person conference. However, the process is still the same.
Your abstract is scored on the following:
The maximum score is 20. To ensure you get as many points as possible, please visit the Submission tips and the sample of a well written Abstract.
Decisions will be sent to all applicants on August 1, 2020. Please check your spam and junk folders to ensure you get the Abstract notification email. NMAC emails are often blocked from main inboxes.
Virtual Workshop presentations are 1-hour in length.
All workshops will have a 30 min presentation followed by a 30 min Q&A. Workshops will be pre-recorded before the opening of the conference. Each workshop will be scheduled for (1) a Rehearsal, (2) a time to record the entire presentation and (3) a time during USCHA to have a live Q&A with conference attendees.
Please plan your presentation to be inclusive of the needs to sufficiently present a virtual workshop.
