Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pre-register if I am not going to present?

  • All participants at LASA2016 (paper presenters, chairs, discussants, organizers) must pre-register by March 31, 2016 (17:00 hours EDT), otherwise their names will not appear in the Program Book nor will they be able to present at the Congress. Additionally, their panels may be cancelled due to insufficient presenters.
  • Acceptance as an official LASA2016 Participant does not confer automatic LASA2016 registration. If you have an institutional membership and a role in the congress, the institutional membership does not exempt you from paying the registration fee for the congress as an individual.
