Frequently Asked Questions

I am a member of LASA with an accepted proposal, do I have to register for the congress?

Yes, membership and registration are two different services. Congress registration includes entrance to the sessions, Book Exhibit, Film Festival as well as to the social events like the Welcome Ceremony and Gran Baile. Details about member benefits can be found at:

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

All participants at LASA2018 (paper presenters, workshop/roundtable participants, chairs, discussants, organizers) must pre-register by Thursday, March 15th, 2018 (17:00 hours EDT), otherwise their names may not appear in the Program Book. Additionally, panels may be modified due to insufficient presenters. All attendees (no active role in the congress) must register, either by pre-registering or upon arrival at the congress site. Acceptance as an official LASA2018 participant does not confer automatic LASA2018 registration.

I would like to pay my pre-registration fee. How can I do so?

Pre-registration for LASA2018 will be available on-line after November 13, 2017.

What will my registration fee cover?

Each registration fee covers:

  • Admittance to all sessions and book exhibits
  • Admittance to the Welcoming Ceremony and Reception
  • Admittance to the Film Festival
  • Admittance to the Gran Baile
  • Online Conference Proceedings

**The Program Book will only be available online and in our exclusive application. A printed version can be bought at an additional cost.
