Special Rate(with proper ID):

Students and local scholars (including neighboring countries) with no role in the congress and no previous affiliation with LASA may attend LASA2017 for $10. This payment can be made online after March 30th. This special rate includes, panels, the Film Festival, the Book Exhibit and the Closing Ceremony.

Preregistration Refund Policy: NO REFUNDS

LASA does not refund conference preregistration payment if a registrant is unable to attend the Congress. Please finalize your plans to attend the Congress before preregistering.

Many more people would like to serve on panels than the Program Committee can accommodate. After discovering that participants agree to deliver a paper or act as discussants/chairs only to withdraw at the last moment, leaving panel spaces empty that others would have gladly filled, LASA has enacted a no-refund policy to encourage accepted panelists to fulfill their obligations to attend the meeting.
