As part of LASA’s standard procedures, all papers need to be submitted to LASA Secretariat by the due date. However, if the paper of a non LASA travel grant recipient will be published at a later date as part of a dissertation, the presenter can include in the email a note requesting the paper not to be published. LASA will then proceed to acknowledge the submission but will not publish the paper on the website. *Please note this exception is only applicable to those participants not receiving a LASA travel grant, all LASA travel grantees’ papers will be posted on the website.
Participants are not required to bring hard copies of their papers; instead they need to send a final copy of their paper via email to firstname.lastname@example.org - PDF or Microsoft Word format.
LASA will be providing an LCD projector, a screen and the proper connections for a laptop in each meeting room. Each panel will be responsible for bringing a laptop for their presentation. Separate audio and video equipment, as well as, internet connection will not be provided. Any video presentations should be recorded on DVD or any other media so they may be viewed via the laptop. Presenters will be required to provide their own speakers if needed.
If for any reason you cannot attend, please inform the Secretariat no later than March 31, 2016. Registration fees will not be refunded.
Any presenters who no longer have a panel after March 31, 2016 will be sent to the Program Chairs.
