IAAC events comprise open research events and our own internal planning and management meetings. This page provides a visual overview of our activity as an aid to planning your diary.
Our research workshops are usually a half-day and are held to involve the widely experienced Community of Interest (COI) in our research programmes. COI members number some 600 people and we are always happy to add more; please contact us at if you’d like to be considered for the COI list.

There are four private discussion meetings (PDM) each year, usually held over a discreet dinner in a leading London establishment. The meetings are mainly for the benefit of our sponsors who recognise the importance of being involved in the new policy developments. These meetings are always led by a leading academic, top government official or a leading corporate executive. Attendance at PDMs is by invitation.

Our flagship event is the annual symposium that addresses strategic IA and cyber security issues pertinent to the current research programme. On most occasions, Ministers have contributed as well top corporate managers, senior public servants and eminent academics. Our annual symposium provides unrivalled opportunities for attendees to network with the IA and cyber security champions and policy developers. This is an open event that incurs a nominal registration fee to cover basic costs. Contact for details.

IAAC’s Academic Liaison panel have regular private meetings throughout the year. Read more about this panel here.
