Kangaroo Island has been named as the host of the 2017 International Small Island Studies Association Conference at this year's event in Penghu, Taiwan.
The conference connects islanders and people who study islands: consultants, community leaders and scientists. They'll gather to discuss matters such as transport, exports, water, the environment and education.
It will be the first time the conference has been held in Australia. The 3-4 day conference will bring around 200 delegates to Kangaroo Island.
