ICA Annual Conference Registration Discounts
ICA holds an annual conference at which hundreds of research papers are presented and over 2,000 scholars from all over the world participate. The conference provides the ample opportunity to network with colleagues who share your teaching and research interests worldwide. We recognize outstanding contributions to the field through awards and fellowship programs. ICA Members qualify for discounted conference rates, where both membership and conference registration together are a better value than a nonmember registration.
