List of Previous Locations

The table below charts the venues and dates of all IWC Commission and Scientific Committee meetings from 1949 to the present day.  The abbreviation 'Spec' refers to special, additional meetings, usually convened to resolve a particular issue.  The Commission meeting cycle moved from annual to biennial in 2012.  The Scientific Committee continues to meet every year but, in years where both meetings occur, is separated from the Commission Meeting by a period of at least 100 days.
