The Internationaler Kongreß für Unterwasserarchäologie (IKUWA), or International Congress on Underwater Archaeology, is one of the major maritime archaeology conferences. The Congress was founded in Sassnitz, Germany, in 1999. Its mission is to raise awareness of the importance of underwater cultural heritage and to support an international regulatory framework for its protection and preservation.

The next IKUWA conference will be held in Fremantle, West Australia, in November 2016. It will be hosted by the Western Australian Museum and marks the first time the conference has been outside of Europe.
