Purpose of conference
PIASA has organized annual conferences since 1942. Their main purpose is to convene experts from the Polish-American community working in various disciplines of the humanities, arts, and sciences and to highlight their latest research and accomplishments. The conference offers multiple presentations and panels in both plenary and thematic sessions as well as a banquet and cultural and networking events. The conference also recognizes the highest achievements in the humanities, arts, and sciences with the presentation of the PIASA awards. The most recent PIASA conferences were in Warsaw (2014),Washington, DC (2013) and Boston, MA (2012).
