International Association for Impact Assessment


  • IAIA seeks proposals for the 2020 conference.


    Do you want to be part of a team that inspires and connects people from around the globe? Do you want to help create an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere that will allow people to learn from each other by sharing their experiences and ideas? Are you an expert in impact assessment and want to be part of an event that will advance practices and theories in this domain? If so, we want to hear from you!

    IAIA–the International Association for Impact Assessment–welcomes proposals from individuals and/or organizations that work in the field of impact assessment to host our annual conference in 2020. We are seeking energetic and collaborative partners to organize the IAIA20 conference and meeting.

    IAIA’s annual conference is the association’s flagship event. The conference is a multi-disciplinary, multi-sectoral gathering of 800+ experts, practitioners, and stakeholders who work in impact assessment. We regularly welcome participants from 80+ countries. This premier conference is a unique opportunity for those in impact assessment to come together to share their experiences, learn from each other, improve their knowledge, expand their networks, and create new opportunities for future collaborations.

    IAIA staff will work with you to help you prepare the best possible proposals. Proposals will be reviewed by the IAIA Conferences Committee, with the final decision made by the IAIA Board of Directors. Proposals are evaluated on a number of criteria such as their completeness (in comparison with the information requested in our proposal guidance document), financial considerations, and location (IAIA likes to move its conferences around the globe in order to be accessible to more interested experts and stakeholders).

    IAIA will accept proposals for the 2020 conference until September 30, 2017. We encourage interested parties to contact us early so that we can work with you to develop the best proposal possible.

    If you would like to work with IAIA and host our 2020 conference, please contact us for more information. Organizing the annual conference is a rewarding and enriching experience. You will gain valuable experience in event planning, expand your professional network, and help contribute to the mission and vision of IAIA. We would love to hear from you!

    If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Jill Baker, IAIA Executive Director, at, for more information.
