2013 Annual Research Conference
Dates: September 9-12, 2013
Location: Reno, NV


ICCA's 2nd Annual Conference in the “What Matters” Series

"One Criminal Justice System with Many Decision Makers: Working toward A Shared Vision"

September 9-12, 2013



On Monday, September 9, 2013, ICCA will offer two or three intensive, day-long pre-conference workshop on a variety of topics. These workshops may involve a team of presenters, panel presentations, or be interactive with the audience.

Research Conference Workshops

On Monday, September 9 through Thursday, September 12, the ICCA Conference will feature commissioned keynote presentations of new research on various aspects.

Themes this year will include:

  • "What Matters" in offender supervision including research about desistance from crime;
  • What actually happens in the correctional education, transitional housing, employment, substance abuse and mental health treatment practices;
  • "What Matters" with female offenders and marginalized populations;
  • What must occur for restorative justice to happen?

The array of workshops for which we are inviting your participation will demonstrate evidence-based best practices and promising practices at work in the field. Workshops are typically 90 minutes in length, with 5-6 workshops running concurrently following each plenary session. The format may be lecture, panel presentation, or interactive. Workshops offering strong elements of both research and practice may opt for conducting two consecutive 90-minute workshops for a total of three hours in length.


The ICCA conference is the premiere international research conference on community corrections. Attendance for the Reno conference is estimated at 500-600 community corrections agency leaders and program directors, probation and parole officers, jail re-entry program directors, as well as researchers, government representatives, officers of the court, and vendors.


Presenters are responsible for their own transportation and accommodation costs, but will be offered free conference registration for the day of their presentation.
