Deadline EXTENDED: March 1 2023

The International Association of Genocide Scholars (IAGS) is soliciting proposals for local hosts and venues for our 17th biennial conference to be held during the summer of 2025.

IAGS conferences typically feature several plenary sessions and keynote speakers, as well as concurrent thematic panels where approximately 250-450 papers are presented over a 4 to 5-day timeframe. IAGS conferences are collaborative endeavors that bring together and capitalize on the expertise and experience of both the host institution and IAGS. The 2025 conference will be organized by a joint conference committee of equal membership from the IAGS and from the hosting group(s). The committee will responsible for the content planning as well as work together on logistics, when necessary. Among the items the Conference Committee will deal with are: the selection of keynote speakers and special events, development and implementation of the peer-review process for paper and panel proposals that is based on the criteria determined by IAGS as consistent with its mission as a scholarly organization, and the development of principles and protocols for interactions with external groups (media, national and international governments, etc.).
