We summarize the 14th meeting of the International Astronomical Consortium for High Energy Calibration (IACHEC) held at \textit{Shonan Village} (Kanagawa, Japan) in May 2019. Sixty scientists directly involved in the calibration of operational and future high-energy missions gathered during 3.5 days to discuss the status of the cross-calibration between the current international complement of X-ray observatories, and the possibilities to improve it... This summary consists of reports from the various WGs with topics ranging from the identification and characterization of standard calibration sources, multi-observatory cross-calibration campaigns, appropriate and new statistical techniques, calibration of instruments and characterization of background, communication and preservation of knowledge, and results for the benefit of the astronomical community. read more
