CONFERENCE UPDATE. In anticipation of the Feast of the Ascension, we are overjoyed to report that 300+ speakers from over THIRTY COUNTRIES are being scheduled to present their papers at IOTA’s Inaugural Conference in Iasi, Romania on 9-12 January 2019. In terms of output and representation, the event is poised to become the largest gathering of Orthodox scholars, clergy, lay leaders, and professionals in modern history.

REGISTRATION OPEN. All prospective attendees, including speakers, may now register for the Inaugural Conference by completing the following three steps online: 1) become an IOTA member here; 2) register here; 3) and make a hotel room reservation by sending an email to the hotel management here. Due to high demand, space is limited. The headquarters hotel, Unirea, will be able to accommodate about a third of all conference participants.
