May 2013 will mark the 30th year since the publication in Science reporting for the first time the identification of a retrovirus associated with AIDS-related syndromes, now referred to as human immunodeficiency virus. To celebrate this anniversary, the Institut Pasteur in collaboration with the U.S. National Institutes of Health and other partners is organizing an international symposium. The objective of this symposium is not to trace the history of the discovery of the virus, but to focus on the critical challenges and the future priorities that remain in HIV science as a result of 30 years of fantastic achievements. Distinguished international speakers will share their findings and their vision of the priorities of HIV research in the coming years. The symposium will gather a broad array of participants: senior scientists, young investigators, students and clinical researchers working in HIV and related areas from developed as well as resource-limited countries. Approximately 500 participants are expected to attend.
