We are looking for presentations, workshops, and panels on any number of index- and information-related topics.

In addition, we are expanding our offerings for poster sessions by accepting papers as well. All papers submitted that meet our guidelines will be published in an online, post-conference book of proceedings. All papers will also be considered for poster sessions, which will be displayed during the conference. (Authors who attend the conference to support their papers receive precedence.) This is a great opportunity to share knowledge not only on indexing, but also on non-indexing topics of interest to indexers.



Toronto is an astonishing and eclectic mosaic of people and languages, cultures and lifestyles, all in one clean, safe, friendly place. It's a North American city of rare openness, energy, and style. Its skyline includes the CN tower, considered one of the Modern Wonders of the World, and its miles of waterfront, beaches, boardwalks and trails perfectly complement Toronto's bustling downtown core.

Plans for the conference are well underway, with an active calls for presentations, papers, and poster sessions. We've negotiated some great rates at the hotel, and the Toronto Pearson International Airport is less than 90 minutes away from over 60% of the U.S. population. Toronto is also Canada's most international city, which is perfect for us because our meeting is the triennial international conference among the indexing societies. We expect delegates from around the world.

We hope you can join us this year. You don't want to miss what is becoming the biggest, most exciting, and most rewarding conference so far.
