Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a track and a section?

LASA sections provide networking opportunities all year round and have dues requirements to join. LASA sections have their own budgets, director boards and some provide awards and grants for the LASA congresses. For more information on sections, visit the link LASA Sections or contact the LASA sections coordinator

The program tracks are LASA’s organized themes for congress proposals. Participants choose a track theme during the proposal submission process when submitting proposals. Each track has a chair responsible for reviewing the proposals for the conference. Visit the program tracks page to select the most appropriate one for your proposal.
