Each year the Association of Internet Researchers organises a key event – the annual AoIR conference. This conference brings together hundreds of academics, researchers, graduate students and other participants for a interdisciplinary, multi-methodological look at the Internet. The conference has developed a reputation for being friendly, welcoming of diverse opinions and broad in its scope. The conference aims to gather together leading scholars and help set directions for research within disciplines, as well as in interdisciplinary ventures. We encourage all Internet researchers to attend.

The Association makes every effort to announce upcoming conference venues up to two years in advance.
