The first conference was organized on November 20 and 21, 2003 in Montreal. Subsequently, it was organized on a biennial basis as much as possible, under the sponsorship of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – santé (FRQS).

To organize the conference, Dr. Awissi called on specialists in research ethics and scientific integrity in Quebec, Canada and elsewhere in the world.

The membership of the symposium support committees has often changed from one symposium to another. However, Dr. Denis Cournoyer, Me Pierre Deschamps and Me Michel T. Giroux, three specialists in research ethics and scientific integrity, were approached very early on and were regularly members of the scientific and conference organizing committees.
