2019 International Symposium

June 03rd - 05th, 2019

Our 2019 International Symposium is in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from June 3rd-5th! Join us at the historic Fairmont Palliser for an unforgettable conference.


Every year the IACA hosts the Annual IACA Conference in the United States. The international symposium allows members from outside the US, who would normally not be able to attend the annual conference, to benefit from the training sessions and discussions designed to benefit them. This three-day conference includes a broad range of topics for analysts, law enforcement practitioners from all areas of the criminal justice system, and police executives.

IACA International Symposiums have been previously in Vancouver, the Hague, Toronto, and Halifax. Calgary has been selected as the location for the 2019 Symposium, and we have partnered with the Calgary Police Service as our Host Agency.
