WHAT: The Smith Conference Committee at UW-Madison invites submissions for the 2021 IASS Annual Conference. The conference builds on the success of the IASS’s recent meetings in Scotland, Chile, Italy, Southern California, and the planned conference in Japan.

We aim to bring together scholars of Smith across disciplines and will consider individual and coauthored papers on Smith from any field and at any institution. We also welcome proposals for author meets critics sessions to discuss books published in the last two years (or forthcoming); proposers of such sessions should solicit interest in participating from the author and at least two critics prior to submission.

WHERE: We hope to be able to host an in-person conference in Madison but are planning for both a hybrid and online format as well. We aim to be able to include as much of our membership as possible. We will follow CDC, WHO, and UW-Madison protocols in determining the final format of the conference, which we plan to announce with acceptance decisions.

Cancellation of 2020 IASS in Tokyo

It is with great pain that the IASS board came to the decision to cancel the annual conference in Tokyo, due to the current outbreak of Coronavirus.

Refunds for registration and dinner will be processed soon. We cannot refund the fees that PayPal charges.
Individual participants will be responsible for their own cancellations and refunds of transportation and accomodation.

We regret any inconvenience this cancellation may cause. And we surely hope we can see each other soon enough in another event.
The IASS board would also recognize and deeply thank the local organizers for all the hard work they did both in organizing a conference that had a remarkably wonderful program, and in handling all the difficulties due to the consequences of the Coronavirus.
The IASS Board
