Dear colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to the STI & AIDS World Congress 2013 in Vienna,

which will be held as a joint meeting of the 20 th Meeting of the International

Society for Sexually Transmitted Diseases Research (ISSTDR), and the 14 th

World Congress of the International Union against Sexually Transmitted

Infections (IUSTI).

The conference will take 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.

During the conference, you will experience a scientific program of very high quality,

reflecting the broad range of STI/HIV science and clinical practice.

We are expecting the largest attendance of all ISSTDR/IUSTI joint conferences and a

large number of abstracts on the current research work.

We believe 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 will make your stay a

memorable one.

We trust you will find the 20 th ISSTDR Conference / 14 th IUSTI World Congress both

professionally and personally rewarding.

Join us for the STI & AIDS Congress Vienna 2013!
