The organising committee has decided to discuss and consider a Biennial format to future full forum conferences. The aim is to hold another full forum conference in 2015, then to move to Biennial conferences, with the next one being held in 2017. In between there will be smaller regional workshops on specific topics which can be proposed by members. Odd years (ie. 2015/17/19...) will avoid clashing with the ISAD and ISBD Regional conferences thereby reducing what is currently a very busy conference calendar.
The committee has also decided to rotate the full forum conference around five cities in Europe in order. These are the following:
These are the venues where the conference has been most successful in achieving a good blend - an exciting programme, good delegate numbers and ease of access for international delegates. In addition the conference will attempt to take a slot in April in future at least two weeks away from EPA, APA and Easter.
This may be difficult, in which case, the date may therefore slip into late March or early May accordingly. We make every effort to avoid clashes with other conferences however it is unfortunately sometimes unavoidable. We do move dates sometimes if clashes become apparent, but not within 5-6 months of the conference. Please check the website around this time for final dates.
Applications can be made to the secretariat if you wish to hold an IRPB workshop. At present we are considering applications from:
