The International Council on Archives (ICA) holds an annual meeting open to the general public. The ICA Annual Conference is dedicated to a specific subject in the field of archival science. It consists of several plenary sessions, simultaneous panels, workshops and lectures, in which new initiatives and approaches are presented, discussed and developed, with the participation of about 800 attendees (mainly academics, archivists, computer scientists and public institution officials) from 70 countries.
So far, the Conference had been held in countries in Asia and Europe. However, in 2017 it will be held for the first time in Latin America and Mexico will be the host country.
Its organization will be in charge of the regional Latin American branch of ICA, the Latin American Association of Archives (ALA), under the coordination of its president, Dr. Mercedes de Vega, General Director of the National Archives of Mexico.
In addition to its members in 198 countries, the ICA brings together sections with common professional interests and regions with different archival traditions.
