See you in Nashville — register for NICAR23!

NICAR will be back in Nashville this spring after 26 years. We can’t wait to see y’all on March 2-5, 2023! Registration is now open and professional members can register at the early-bird rate of $299 until January 9. Student members can register at any time for $100. We’ll be at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel — book your stay now before the discounted block fills up.

NICAR23 will not include virtual sessions. Our goal is to provide the best possible experience and we have found, based on attendee feedback, that a hybrid event does not meet the highest level of standards that IRE members have come to expect. We instead have significantly bolstered our affordable and accessible virtual training opportunities scheduled throughout the year.

Additionally, we're expanding and rebranding the DBEI Symposium, our all-virtual conference held in the fall, to IRE Access Fest. Access Fest will offer programming focused on diversity, belonging, equity and inclusion, and also provide trainings that you would see at a typical IRE or NICAR Conference. Check out DBEI21 and DBEI22 schedules for examples. Access Fest will be held on October 12-14, 2023 - more details coming soon!

We’d love to hear from you about what else you’d like to see. Fill this form out any time you have an idea for an event.

We’re lining up a schedule for NICAR23 packed with data workshops, hands-on classes and panels, but there’s still time to send us your ideas! The pitch form will remain open through September 30. For questions about pitching or anything else, please email

IRE is committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical ability, age, appearance or religion. Take a moment to read through the IRE Code of Conduct before making a pitch:
