Congress Policy

Registration and Attendance Terms

By registering for or attending a Latin American Studies Association (LASA) Congress, you agree to the following policies and terms:

Registration fees policy

No participant in the LASA Congress is exempt from paying registration fee.

Registration Policy

All those attending sessions, including speakers, discussants, and session chairs, are required to register for the Congress.

Refund Policy

Congress registration fees are non-refundable. 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. As a result, LASA does not refund Congress registration payments, even in cases where the registrant is unable to attend the Congress or the registrant’s proposal submission was not accepted. Please finalize your plans to attend the Congress before registering.
