Scholars from academic institutions around the world are invited to submit a proposal to the Academic Committee. The topics covered are wide ranging and diverse, with a healthy representation of the Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities.
Conferences are open to an academic audience, by invitation only. The duration of each conference is approximately from 2-7 days. 

Some of the conferences are sponsored solely by the IIAS.  Others are jointly sponsored with the Israel Science Foundation (ISF).
