Before and after each annual conference, ICA hosts pre- and postconferences. These sessions are either all-day or half-day miniconferences, intended as an extension of the main ICA conference, but separate in terms of budget, programming, and administration.
For the 2018 Prague conference, space in the hotel is limited. While we have approximately 20 slots within the hotels, ICA also accepts proposals for pre/postconferences to be held outside of the hotel and even outside of Prague. All off-site preconferences outside Prague should be held on Wednesday, 23 May, with the following day 24 May given to travelling to Prague. All on-site (in the conference hotels) preconferences will be held on Thursday, 24 May with an end time of 5pm.
All postconferences will be on Tuesday, 29 May if in the hotel or elsewhere in Prague, or Wednesday or later if outside Prague. If you choose to have an off-site conference, you may either propose a location you have already obtained in advance or you may mark on your proposal form that you wish to speak with our local host for help in determining a location. In all cases, please think carefully about your own break-even budget (the form has a formula for determining this) and whether you will need more than one room (if you might need a breakout room, for instance). Because of space restrictions it is unlikely we can accommodate late requests for additional rooms.
If you are interested in planning and submitting a preconference or postconference proposal please fill out the proposal form by Thursday, 1 September 2017. More detailed instructions are within the application form.
If you have questions after reading the form, please contact Jennifer Le (firstname.lastname@example.org).
