IAS Triennial Symposia

The IAS has had continuous Triennial Meetings since 1966. In earlier years these meetings represented the almost exclusive activities of the IAS. But they additionally represented a forum for the development of a true international organization with a much more far reaching agenda that includes all of the member societies. These member societies are listed on the homepage.

Upcoming Member Society Activities

The IAS supports 67 constituent societies which have more than 17,000 members. Each society holds periodic meetings in addition to other educational activities held during the year. This site lists upcoming meetings and educational activities of the IAS member societies. Once these events are held, a summary is added to the society link on the IAS website.

Upcoming IAS Endorsed Activities -Non-IAS Member

Every year various organizations promote scientific educational activities and request endorsement from the IAS. If the IAS Education and Executive Committees approve such endorsement, the activities will be listed on the IAS website homepage.
