Registration for the 57th ERSA Congress

Benefit from the early bird registration fee by registering before and not later than the 9th of June. Late registration is possible until July 31st. Should one of your colleagues or co-authors also want to register, they should use this registration form too. Congress Participants may register an Accompanying Person on the Congress Registration Form, but Accompanying Persons cannot be academic researchers.

Submitters' registration timeline
For presenters in Refereed Sessions, Special Sessions and Young Scientist / Epainos Sessions, the deadline for mandatory paper upload is June 9th 2017. These presenters must be registered before June 9th in order to have a discussant assigned and their presentation(s) scheduled in the Congress programme. Presenters in Ordinary Sessions must register before July 31th 2017 to be included in the programme. Please use the Submission Portal to upload or update your paper. In case the submitter will not present and will be replaced by a co-author, please inform us who will be the registered presenter. Presenters in Ordinary Sessions can also upload their paper at any time if they wish to share it with the participants before the Congress.

Social Events and Technical Excursions
The LOC has organised for all participants and accompanying persons Social Events and Technical Excursions. Technical Excursions will take place in parallel with congress sessions. We have planned four attractive technical excursions within and outside the city of Groningen on Wednesday and Friday. If you are interested, please register via the registration form. Participation requires a small fee.
