2020 RSA Annual Conference Refund Page

On 13th March 2020, in a virtual meeting, the Board of the Regional Studies Association took the difficult decision that the Annual Conference, Ljubljana, Slovenia cannot go ahead as planned in June.

This decision was taken in the light of the evolving situation relating to coronavirus and in close consultation with the local organising team. We are very grateful to our local organisers for their calm stewardship during this global public health crisis.

For clarity, none of the events associated with the annual conference will take place – including the Technical Tours; Early Career Women’s Network; RSA Territorial Ambassadors meeting; RSA Board meeting or Regional Studies Journal Editorial Board meeting. We are making alternative arrangements for each and will be in touch with those affected shortly.

Given that this event was going to be one of the largest and most geographically diverse conferences that we have ever run, we are pleased to announce that the RSA Annual Conference in Ljubljana, while not running in June 2020, has been rescheduled to run as the RSA’s Annual Conference in 2022. Again, we would like to thank the local organising team for their flexibility and commitment to the Association, its members and our wider community.

Next Steps for Conference Participants

We hope this early decision to cancel the conference in June removes uncertainty for you and enables you to cancel any travel, accommodation and further commitments and prevents any additional costs.

The RSA is offering participants a choice in relation to paid conference fees:

  • 100% conference fee refund
  • Using your conference fee to pay for future RSA events or Association membership

Please let us know below how you wish to proceed.
