Scientific Meetings

ISSX organizes its scientific meetings on a regular schedule, with an International Meeting held in one of the three major regions of the world every third year. Regional Meetings are held in the intervening years, usually annually in North America, biennially in Europe, and in other parts of the world when possible and as appropriate. The Scientific Affairs Committee of ISSX is charged with the responsibility for setting the meetings calendar on behalf of the Society.


ISSX Scientific Meetings and Workshops

An International ISSX Meeting is a meeting for the entire Society with a broad ranging program to serve the interests of all its various scientific and geographical constituencies. Regional Meetings are organized to serve the interests of members within these regions; they may be more specialized, and the majority of the invited speakers are generally from the region in which the meeting is held. 

Workshops on specific topics are also be held from time to time, and these operate under the same general principles as ISSX meetings, with an organizing committee and program review and approval from the ISSX Scientific Affairs Committee and ISSX Council.
