IACR Newsflash

IACR Constitution (2016)

The Association has updated its Constitution and Standing Rules.  These were ratified by the Board and submitted to the vote of the members, with the voting process completed in January 2016.  The 2016 Constitution conserves valued parts of the current Constitution while taking into consideration other suggestions to best meet the needs of our membership. 

See the letter of introduction from the IACR President and the IACR Executive Secretary outlining rationale and the process for the update. 

Call for proposals to host the IACR Annual IACR Scientific Conferences

The Annual IACR Scientific Conference is key activity of the Association. It brings together members as a means to foster the exchange of information internationally, so improving quality of data and comparability between registries. We invite proposals to host our annual conference for 2018 – 2021.

Hosting an IACR Scientific Conference involves establishing a local organising committee to help the Program Committee form a theme, provide meeting arrangements (recommended hotels, transportation and visitor information), developing a social programme, providing staff to assist with logistics (registration, book of abstracts, workshops) and identifying regional partners.

Registries that are interested are asked to declare their interest by submitting a brief proposal via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to outline the location, local organizing committee and rationale to the Association. Selected candidates will be invited to prepare a presentation to the Executive Board for final decision.
