Singapore program/ registration

We are keeping registration open a little bit. Register by October 5th!And keep checking for updates!


The provisional program for the Singapore conference is now available on our website. As you know, we have had a wonderful response to our call for proposals and we thank you for your patience as we worked through the change from Bangkok to Singapore. The program reflects a wide variety of your interests – from foreign policy and diplomacy to security and approaches to peace to economic and human development, alternative IR theorizing, alternative pedagogies and much more. Apart from the stimulating discussions and debates which we expect, we are looking forward to the networking opportunities this conference will present, given the fact that we are pleased to have participants from Russia and Eurasia as well as Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, various parts of Europe and North America. We would like to particularly welcome graduate students from around the world. We are facilitating an informal networking “buy your own” lunch for you.
At this time, we would like to remind you to please register for the conference. The deadline is October 1st . All persons who are participating on the program must pre-register. Registration is via the ISA website. (Here's a tip: If you begin the registration process but do not complete the payment, we will hold your registration for a while! Write to us if you need a small extension!) For those of you who are awaiting travel grant information, we are afraid that we cannot award these grants until after the pre-registration period. This is the normal policy for ISA. However, we will let you know ASAP after that. Although we hope that very few of you will wish to withdraw from such an exciting conference, please contact us immediately if you need to withdraw.
We will soon be opening up a Chat Room for you to exchange information about the conference. Please refer to the blogsite for details. We have also posted some information there about Singapore itself and will continue to update that with pertinent information on tours, alternative hotels and so on. We also have some information there about out c-sponsor, the Singapore Management University.
We look forward to seeing you in Singapore.
