IAIA22 carbon offset program

IAIA continues to strongly support the need to reduce the carbon footprint around our conferences. To this end, US$5 from every conference registration will be donated to Cheakamus Community Forest (CCF) to help offset the carbon footprint of this conference. The CCF is a joint venture with the Lil'wat and Squamish First Nations and the Resort Municipality of Whistler. Together, these three partners oversee the management and operation of the forest. The CCF management of the forest involves a significant reduction in harvesting from historical levels with decisions made locally. For further information, please see

video/audio policy

To foster sharing of information and open discussions, IAIA encourages presenters and panelists to speak freely and respectfully share their knowledge and experiences. During technical sessions, individuals are not permitted to record with personal audio or visual equipment or other recording devices such as cell phones, cameras, or recorders, without permission from the speaker.


Any media attending the event will be designated with a "MEDIA" name tag. Media will be allowed to take photographs, notes, and interviews, but video/audio recording by media will be allowed only during the opening and closing plenaries. Any recording by media during technical sessions requires prior permission from the speaker.


By attending the conference, you agree to allow your image to be used by IAIA.




To avoid costs which would necessarily be passed on to delegates in the form of higher registration fees, IAIA does not provide copying, printing, computers or other business services or equipment. 


Please plan to arrive prepared, or contact your hotel to ensure that it offers any facilities you need.




IAIA refunds registration fees upon written request received before 13 April 2022. A US$125 processing fee will be retained. After 13 April, no refunds are issued for cancellations or no-shows. Substitutions for paid registrants may be made in writing without financial penalty. Refunds are issued after the conference.



IInsurance and Liability

 IAIA, the organizing committee, and the venue will not be responsible for medical expenses, accidents, losses or other unexpected damage to property belonging to conference participants, either during or as a result of the conference and during all tours and events. Participants are strongly advised to arrange their own insurance for health and accident, lost luggage and trip cancellation.




Attendees with a disability and/or special accessibility needs were asked to contact IAIA HQ by 13 April to make arrangements. If you have a disability and/or have special accessibility needs and require assistance, please advise IAIA staff at the registration desk. However, we cannot guarantee accommodation of requests made on-site.



Anti-harassment policy

IAIA is committed to providing a safe and harassment-free conference/event experience for everyone. IAIA does not tolerate harassment of, or by, conference/event participants or invitees in any form. Conference/event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference/event without a refund at the discretion of IAIA. IAIA also reserves the right to report the incident to relevant authorities. IAIA's anti-harassment policy and information on how to file a report can be found at



Sustainable conferences

IAIA takes the following steps and many more to mitigate the impacts of our conferences:


Limit printed materials; communicate via e-mail and Web to the extent practical and possible.


Contract with venues that participate in green programs (e.g., hotels that provide a linen and towel reuse program).


Use bulk servings and pitchers rather than individual bottles; use china and silverware rather than disposables.


Participate in a carbon offset program.
