The first ISF was held in 1981 in Quebec, Canada, and the most recent one in Thessaloniki, Greece in 2019. The ISF is generally held in the third or fourth week of June. The general policy is to alternate each year’s location between North America and the rest of the world, to reflect the international member demographics of our organization.
