As a member of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS), the Canadian Association of Slavists holds its annual conference in conjunction with the Federation's Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. This event is organized in partnership with a host Canadian University and usually takes place at the end of May / early June. Other learned societies comprising the CFHSS also attend the congress, turning the event into a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue and networking. The congress routinely holds a Book Fair, featuring many university presses and scholarly publishers.
