Following the 1997 Summer Institute of Intercultural Communication (SIIC) the International Academy of Intercultural Research under the leadership of Dan Landis was formed as an outgrowth of SIETAR International. The International Academy for Intercultural Research is an association of about 250 scholarly Fellows and Members focused on intercultural research in varied disciplines worldwide. IAIR’s mission is to encourage the highest quality empirical research and practice aimed at understanding the ways in which cultures interact, primarily through biennial meetings and publications, like its flagship International Journal of Intercultural Research (IJIR).

“Grüezi mitenand!” (Swiss Greeting)

After two years of a forced break by Covid 19 where many of our contacts took place exclusively virtually, we are looking forward to experiencing with you a "real" conference after the amazing Shanghai 2019 experience! Please join us as we come together to share the latest findings from intercultural research, to learn from each other, to discuss and to find answers to the burning questions of our time. And of course, to enjoy being together once again!

For this purpose, we humbly invite you to come to the Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences in Rapperswil-Jona (close to Zurich), beautifully located directly on Lake Zurich with a stunning mountain view where you can let your mind flow through the clean air of the near Alps or have a swim in the lake during the conference breaks.

While we all are optimistic at heart, we will very carefully follow the developments of the pandemic around the globe to adjust the character of the conference accordingly if needed.
