New registration categories for LASA2021

January 8, 2021

For an inclusive and accessible Congress to all

We would like to send our warmest greetings from the LASA leadership and management team, and we wish you and your loved ones the best of health for 2021.

We are aware that the pandemic has hit families’ economies drastically and, in many cases, tragically. For this reason, and recognizing that the progressive registration model for the LASA2021 Virtual Congress is not sufficient to respond to the serious burdens of the academic communities of our continent, on December 19, 2020, the Executive Council approved two new categories of registration for LASA2021.

People who wish to participate in LASA2021 now have three payment options:

  1. Progressive registration model
  2. Pay what you can
  3. Solidarity fee

We trust that these options will enable the participation of all our membership and from anyone who wishes to register as an attendee.


Registration to LASA2021 Virtual Congress is temporarily closed while the new options of payment are implemented and registration made accessible to all.

Membership will be notified by e-mail and through our website when registration is reopened.
