South Africa won the bid to host the 13th ISSI International conference in 2011, to be held in Durban. ISSI meets regularly bi-annually. Previous ISSI conferences took place in Belgium (1987), Canada (1989), India (1991), Germany (1993), USA (1995), Israel (1997), Mexico (1999), Australia (2001), China (2003), Sweden (2005), Spain (2007) and Brazil (2009). There was strong support for the ISSI conference to be hosted in Africa (South Africa) for the first time and also recognition that South Africa is research leader in Africa and an emerging research contributor from the developing world.
