Withdrawal Deadline

Every year, ISA has far more people applying than we have space for in the program, and hundreds of worthy applicants are turned away. Because of this, ISA's Governing Council imposed a withdrawal deadline, by which time you could still cancel your participation (and the Program Chair(s) could substitute another worthy participant); if you failed to cancel your professional obligation by that date, you would be penalized by not allowing you on the program for future Conventions. 

Please note, withdrawals past the deadline due to lack of funding and other professional or personal commitments are not considered sufficient reasons for exemption from the penalized withdrawal list.

Endeavoring to create communities of scholars dedicated to international studies, ISA is divided into 7 geographic subdivisions of ISA (Regions), 29 thematic groups (Sections) and 4 Caucuses which provide opportunities to exchange ideas and research with local colleagues and within specific subject areas.
