ICA Congress

5 Sep 2016 to 10 Sep 2016
Seoul, South Korea

The ICA Congress takes place every four years. It is much bigger than the Annual Conferences and is even more open, with no preferential registration period for members. The professional programme development is led by ICA’s Programme Commission through a Programme Committee with representatives from the ICA network and the host organization. The programme aims to capture the best examples of archival and records management achievement during the previous 4 years and to act as a discussion and planning forum and signpost for the future cycle.

The Congress usually attracts well over 1000 archives and records management professionals.

The next Congress will take place in Seoul, South Korea during the week of the 5th September 2016. The theme is “Archives, Harmony and Friendship”.

Korea is covered with beautiful hills and fields, where unique archival culture has bloomed and grown. The ICA Congress 2016 will be the chance not only to introduce Korean archival culture which has blossomed over the last 5,000 years, but also to share the results of a recent archival culture renaissance and to contribute to the development of humankind’s archival culture. The ICA Congress 2016 will be held with a fresh archival culture festival and events composed of various programs which accompanying families may also enjoy.

Korea is ready to welcome you with warm hospitality to its capital city, Seoul, in September 2016.
