Does an isolated system always imply constant volume?

An isolated system should imply constant volume. Because it cannot exchange energy or matter with its surroundings, a sealed container of constant volume is required for an isolated system.

An isolated system cannot exchange energy or matter with the surroundings, which pretty much means that pressure can't change, so yes, an isolated system would have constant volume
