As COVID-19 (Coronavirus) diagnoses continue to increase worldwide, ISA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our members and customers.  

The World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and other global health organizations have universally recommended the cancellation or postponement of gatherings, including conferences, to slow the spread of the virus.  

We are complying with those recommendations, as a result, the ISA Analysis Division Symposium, 26-30 April 2020, Long Beach, California, will be canceled.

The 2021 ISA Analysis Division Symposium is scheduled for 18-22 April 2021 in Galveston, Texas. ISA will rollover all current registrations and exhibit payments to the 2021 event, OR you may request a refund by emailing
