Annual IASSIST Conference

Each May/June the annual conference provides data professionals a variety of opportunities to participate in discussions about data sharing and management, data access and repository tools, metadata for research data, best practices for preserving data, global resources for information, new technologies professional development and much more.

The conference consists of workshops focused on the profession, stimulating plenaries, individual presentations, panels, and posters. Networking opportunities with peers from around the world take place in breakout groups, interest group or birds of a feather sessions, and perhaps most importantly, during the breaks.

The annual conference is an international event. Conference locations reflect our membership base and typically rotate to a different region each year.

 Please familiarize yourself with the Code of Conduct pertaining to all IASSIST events.

2021 IASSIST Events

Because of the continued health and economic concerns caused by the coronavirus, the Administrative Committee of IASSIST, in conjunction with the Program and Local Arrangements committees, voted to change the plans for the 2021 conference and hold two events.

The main conference was virtual and took place in May 17-20, 2021.

A joint IASSIST/CESSDA meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden had to be cancelled. Those who had accepted to present in this event have been contacted to discuss if they would like to participate in 2022.
