Since its inception, IAHAIO has held an international conference every three years, usually in a different country each time, from Glasgow to Japan to Chicago. These IAHAIO triennial conferences provide attendees with the very latest in HAI research, education and practice. By attending, you can talk with the key players in the HAI field, learn about work that has not yet hit the publication world, and stay abreast of the trends in HAI. Our conferences also provide wonderful opportunities for networking.

IAHAIO invites its Full Member organizations to submit a bid to host a triennial conference. This is a fantastic opportunity to host one of the biggest human-animal interaction events in your own country and thereby work with IAHAIO to expand the field and bring the latest research and programme developments to new audiences.

More recently, IAHAIO has hosted symposia and other regional events between its international conferences.
