ICAIS provides an international platform for the presentation of research to advance global action to limit the introduction and spread of AIS worldwide and serves as a catalyst for international collaboration on research and management projects.

ICAIS covers a wide range of topics, including species biology, risk assessment, prevention, management and control methods; ecosystem impacts and restoration; public education and outreach initiatives.

Through knowledge sharing and networking, ICAIS connects those involved in science and policy with practitioners and industry professionals on the front lines of AIS prevention and management.
