AISB Annual Convention

Each year, AISB organises a convention consisting of parallel symposia covering various topics.

If you would like to chair future AISB conventions, then please contact the society chair.

If you would like to obtain proceedings from any of these conventions, then we have some Convention Proceedings but these can also be purchased as print versions. Please contact the AISB Secretary for more details.
