The 30th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI), held from February 19 to 22, 2023, is currently planned as an in-person conference with an option for virtual participation for most sessions. The in-person component, hosted in Seattle, Washington, US, will feature additional sessions and networking opportunities for those attending in-person. The best and most consequential original research will define the science at CROI 2023, including research in HIV, hepatitis viruses, SARS-CoV-2, monkeypox, and other viral infections and their related conditions.

The CROI 2023 Program below is preliminary and subject to change. New information will be posted as it becomes available.
