#DSA2024 conference takes place over 3 days: 26–28 June.  The conference will take place as a hybrid conference organised and hosted by SOAS University of London.

Everyone attending the conference, whatever your role, whether a presenter, convenor, chair, discussant, general attendee, needs to register. Even if someone else or an institution is paying for you, you will need to register. Registration covers entry to the conference, the welcome reception and tea breaks and lunches as indicated in the timetable.

You can pay when completing the registration process, but it is not obligatory as you are sent an invoice with 30 days to make your payment.

Registration is now OPEN. Please read through the following information and then choose an appropriate registration category.

While there will be a drinks reception on the opening night to which all delegates are invited, due to the complications/pricing of an event in the capital, we will not be running a social event this year on Thursday evening. We encourage colleagues to use that evening as an opportunity to eat/network with colleagues they have met during the conference, in one of the many places the city centre offers. We have a few suggestions on the Travel and stay page.

Please note that while joining DSA is not compulsory we strongly encourage you to do so, and support the community! Signing up for membership and paying the membership fee is a separate process from registering for the conference and paying the registration fee but we can send you one invoice for both fees if you wish, just email us and request that.

Membership for students is only £11. All those from and residing in low and middle-income countries can become a DSA member for free. For further information about DSA membership and to join up, please visit the DSA membership page.

Funding

The call for Funding closed and all applicants informed of the outcome of their applications.

Cancellation

Registrations cancelled (notifying us by email) more than three weeks (before 7 June) before the conference will be refunded, less a small amount to cover administrative and finance costs. Cancellations made within three weeks of the event will be ineligible for such a refund, due to costs already incurred. Refunds at that point will be discretionary.
