The upcoming UBIAS directors' meeting in Brazil will be the fifth of the kind and the first in the American continent.

In October 2010, the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, Germany, hosted the founding conference of the network. The event brought together 32 institutes of advanced studies from 19 countries on the five continents to discuss the topic 'University-Based Institutes for Advanced Study in a Global Perspective: Promises, Challenges, New Frontiers.'

Since that occasion, which was later considered the first directors' meeting, three more happened from 2013, respecting a geographical rotation and an interval of at least a year between them.
