Entries for January 2017


ISA Statement Regarding Executive Order on Travel Ban

On Friday, January 27, 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order which bans entry of all refugees to the United States for 120 days, and which suspends entry for refugees, immigrants, dual nationals, and US permanent residents from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days, or longer.



Announcement to ISA Convention Registrants

ISA has received many messages of concern in recent days about developing policy changes within the United States. The ISA leadership are all deeply concerned about the implications of these changes, especially for scholars from affected countries. As always, ISA remains dedicated to and embraces diversity, inclusion and academic freedom in all of our activities and programs. We remain committed to this philosophy for the 2017 Baltimore convention and beyond.


23 routine maintenance will be undergoing some routine maintenance this evening, between 5:30pm and 8pm EST. This may result in a temporary period of inaccessibility for the ISA website but should be short in nature. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 



ISA Hong Kong 2017-Pre Registration Deadline!

Tomorrow, January 20th, is the last day to confirm your participation on the ISA Hong Kong 2017 conference program by registering for the conference. Participants must REGISTER BY JANUARY 20, 2017 in order to remain on the program. This applies not only to paper presenters but to people who are serving as panel chairs, discussants and roundtable participants. Any participant who fails to register will be removed from the program.*

Non-attending co-authors do not need to register (as long as one of the authors is registered and will be attending), but they should contact us to make sure that their name remains on the program.

* Please note: Payment is required to complete registration. This policy is necessary to help with issues caused by late withdrawals, which create problematic holes in the program. Thank you for your understanding and attention to this matter!



Check Out Our Exhibit Hall #ISA 2017!

Our Exhibit Hall is a popular destination for Annual Convention attendees. The ISA 2017 exhibit hall will be located in the beautiful Key Ballroom at the Hilton Baltimore, and we will have 70+ companies participating. The hall contains the Cyber Cafe and sponsored coffee breaks and is open to registered participants from Wednesday at 1pm through Saturday at noon.




Online Registration Ends January 30th

Most participants already completed their registration but in case you haven't, we wanted to let you know that our online registration option closes on January 30th. If you complete your registration payment by the 30th, we'll have your badge ready to pick up and go - that's the fastest and easiest way to get started at the convention.

You can always register on site in Baltimore, but please be aware that it costs more and takes additional time than just registering online today.

Tips For On-Site Registration

  • Arrive early: On-site registration takes longer than just picking up your badge from the pre-registration desk. So, come early. If you have an 8:15 am panel on Wednesday, we strongly recommend coming Tuesday afternoon to get signed in (Check out the Registration/Badge Pickup Hours in the At the Convention page).
  • Have your card's billing address: Our credit card provider requires billing addresses for some credit card payments. So, if you're planning to register onsite, make sure you know the billing address for your card and have it ready.

We look forward to seeing you in Baltimore!
