IASNR Conference (Formerly ISSRM*)
Our annual meeting (the IASNR Conference) occurs every year in June. The IASNR Conference is a venue for presenting cutting-edge research and engaging in productive discussions focused on the sustainable management of natural and cultural resources.
Since its inception in 1986, the IASNR Conference has always had a broad focus that encompasses a wide variety of international resource management issues, environmental justice, collaborative stakeholder processes, and the social impacts of natural resource management.
If you are interested in hosting an IASNR Conference please contact [email protected] about the proposal process.
