Your standing as a participant in LASA2017 brings with it significant responsibility to your colleagues, to the Latin American Studies community, and to the Association. LASA International Congresses provide opportunities to disseminate research findings, exchange ideas and make contact with other professionals from many countries. Individuals may be seriously inconvenienced and disappointed when they attend sessions only to find that persons they looked forward to hearing and seeing fail to appear. Do not be recorded as a "no-show." If for any reason you cannot attend, inform the Secretariat by April 1, 2017.
