15th EASA Biennial Conference

EASA 2018 poster

Staying, Moving, Settling is the theme of the 15th EASA biennial conference which will be hosted by Stockholm University, in the picturesque Swedish capital situated between the Baltic Sea and Lake Mälaren. Please join us for four days of panels, labs, plenary discussions and more from 14 to 17 August.

All convenors and presenters must be members of EASA (during 2018), and have paid their subscription before the conference. Signing up for the membership and paying the membership fee is a separate process from conference registration. So please attend to that now, by visiting the EASA membership page here. N.B. If you are a former member of EASA but your membership has lapsed, please log in to Cocoa to request a membership renewal. Please do not make another application for membership!

Registration remains open. To plan your stay in Stockholm, have a look at the accommodation page and the location page which has a map of venues and accommodation locations, and travel links. Also view the panel timetable.

The Events and meetings page is now posted.

The calls are all over: 1625 papers and 37 labs were submitted; Plenary C (Early Career Scholars Forum) received 10 proposals. Please read further on the Information for authors and convenors page.
