Conferences and meetings calendar, 2005.
[Note: The list below does not include most meetings designed primarily as continuing medical education (CME) training for medical professionals--some of which, like those of the AIDS Education and Training Centers (AETCs), we highly recommend. Because there are too many such meetings for this list, we included only a few. The same presentations may also be available at different dates and locations.]
Some of the listings below are included for general interest, although it is unlikely that our readers will attend.
If you think other meetings belong on this list, let us know at email@example.com.
