Thank you

Dear colleague,

On behalf of the Organising Committee of the STI & AIDS World Congress 2013 (Joint Meeting of the 20th ISSTDR and 14th IUSTI Meeting), we would like to cordially thank all participants of the conference review.

The congress took place from July 14 to 17, 2013, in Vienna’s most famous conference venue, the Hofburg Congress Center (former winter palace of the Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I), located in the heart of the city.

The scientific programme provided very high quality, reflecting the broad range of STI/HIV science and clinical practice. The conference attracted the largest number of delegates of all ISSTDR/IUSTI joint meetings from more than 100 countries. More than 1300 abstracts have been submitted, those accepted are published in a supplement of the Journal Sexually Transmitted Infections. We hope that the historic ambience of the Hofburg Congress Center and the hospitable atmosphere of Vienna with its great variety of cultural offers as well as the scientific and social programme during the meeting made your stay a memorable one. We trust you found the 20th ISSTDR Conference / 14th IUSTI World Congress both professionally and personally rewarding.

We hope to meet you again at the next STI & AIDS World Congress 2015 in Brisbane.
