IDWeek 2016 was a record-setting conference as over 7,000 professional attendees from 93 countries converged on New Orleans. The meeting showcased over 130 scientific sessions and another 130 abstract presentation sessions. The meeting also featured two exciting new programs, The Town Hall: Securing the Future of ID at which IDSA and HIVMA members had the opportunity to share their concerns and ideas about how to attract up and coming doctors to the field as well as how to ensure that the specialty is appropriately valued, and the IDWeek Bug Bowl, a high-energy, filled to capacity, game-show styled event with students from three local medical schools.
Abstracts presented in New Orleans have been permanently archived with Open Forum Infectious Diseases, IDSA’s open access journal. In addition, presentations are housed in the IDWeek Digital Library, where you can catch up on sessions you missed or want to re-watch. This feature is accessible free-of-charge to all registered attendees and can be purchased by those who were unable to attend by going to the IDWeek Post Meeting Tools. While you’re there, you can also claim your CME/CPE/MOC credits. The deadline to claim your credits is December 2!
Thank you again to everyone who came and we hope to see you next year. The IDWeek 2017 Program Committee is already hard at work planning another top notch meeting. Mark your calendars for October 4-8, 2017 in San Diego!
