The History of the ISA

The International Summer Academy is the community’s annual event and is alternatingly organized by the different member organizations.

The format and topic of the ISA change each year but the central concept is that it is a conference organised by members for the academic benefit of one another, typically taking place over 5-7 days. ISAs are normally attended by approximately 30 students.
