Celebrating the IAS’s 10th Anniversary, this conference will follow the model of the IAS's successful 2014 conference. As well as drawing delegates from around the world, the 2014 conference brought a number of former IAS Fellows back to Durham to convene panels and participate in related activities. The 2016 conference will focus on issues of Evidence, in accord with the IAS’s annual research theme for 2015-16.

The Institute has welcomed panel or roundtable proposals on any aspect of Evidence.

In addition to an open call for panels, the IAS has invited its former Fellows to submit panel proposals considering the evidential aspects of the annual themes under which they undertook Fellowships in Durham. These theme include: The Legacy of Charles Darwin; Modelling; Being Human; Water; Futures; Time, Light and Emergence. As well as encouraging its College of Fellows to reunite in Durham in 2016, these panels will be open to other researchers with interests in these themes.

Panel proposals have also been welcomed for a special roundtable for IAS Directors, to address any theme(s) relevant to IASs around the world.

The call for panels has now closed. If you have missed the deadline and wish to discuss please contact Linda Crowe (
