The first ISF was held in 1981 in Quebec, Canada, and the most recent one was held virtually in 2020. The ISF generally takes place in June/July. The 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.

Upcoming:

ISF 2023: Beijing, China | June 25-28
ISF 2024: Charlottesville, Virginia / Washington DC (tbd)
ISF 2025: Paris, France
