IOTA is open to all interested in sharing knowledge within the context of the Orthodox tradition and in contributing to the life of the Church.

IOTA now has a YouTube Channel with over a dozen videos from this January’s Jerusalem Symposium. The videos include:

• “Highlights” (overview of IOTA’s) –

• “IOTA’s mission

• “Groups” (explains how IOTA’s 25 groups will function and   collaborate)

• “City of Iasi“(the official site of the conference)

In addition, we continue to upload the videos of the Vision Statements that the IOTA Chairs — well-respected Orthodox scholars from eight countries — offered at the Jerusalem Symposium. The Groups Page on the IOTA website has been updated with the texts of the available vision statements too. Stay tuned for more!


The Call for Papers for the Inaugural Conference is open until March 31, 2018. To date, we have received over forty proposals and are poised to double this figure. To submit your paper proposals, visit this page.
