Abstract mentoring programme

HepHIV has implemented an abstract mentoring programme, an extra support for those less familiar with submitting scientific abstracts but with great best practice examples. The goal of the progamme is to help authors present their material clearly and concisely before their abstracts are submitted for the formal abstract review process. Authors wishing to participate in the abstract mentoring programme are asked to send their draft abstract (in MS Word format) to by the 3 October 2016. Please indicate also to which abstract category (1-11, see below) you wish to submit your abstract.
