Future Congresses

56th International Congress, 2023: Tallin, Estonia

If you and your research institute are interested in organising an ISAE Congress in future (2024 and beyond), please contact the ISAE Senior Vice-President (currently Susanne Waiblinger, ) for more information. We usually have the ISAE Congress alternate years in and outside Europe, but the guidelines are as flexible as we make them.

In the event of cancellation of a congress (e.g., as a consequence of a disease outbreak or acts of terrorism), the ISAE retains the right (by ‘force majeure’) to keep congress registration fees to cover outstanding expenses, if absolutely necessary.
