Registration & fees

The organizing team really hopes that by August 2021 a partly face-to-face event will be possible, but this might still not be the case, and definitely not for all participants. Thus, the AILA 2021 World Congress will be based on a fully virtual event, allowing for hybrid attendance if possible:

  • A fully virtual basis: we are working on the e-platform now and details will be sent to the participants soon.

  • A truly hybrid additional layer: If the pandemic is under control and large on-site events can be held in a safe and relaxing way, the virtual platform will remain and will be fully integrated into the live ( physically present in Groningen) event, so the participants (including featured speakers and symposium organizers) can decide for themselves to attend live or virtually.


Before April 1st, AILA will make the final decision, based on whether (or not) all COVID-19 restrictions in Europe will have been lifted.

In both cases, the AILA 2021 organizing team will stick to the program schedule as presented on the website and leave the symposium organizers in charge of their own program (order of presentations and number of minutes allocated to each speaker).

Because of the new structure, registration fees were lowered considerably (see below). The new fees take into account that organizing a virtual event of this size also brings new challenges and costs.

We hope that the fact that virtual attendance reduces costs (e.g., no accommodation and travel costs) allows many AILA members to attend.  After the conference AILA will make a selection of presentations accessible to the wider public for free.

Student registration

The AILA2021 offers a reduced registration to students enrolled in an accredited college or university program. Students for whom tuition is paid for or reimbursed by an employer are not eligible for discounted registration. During the registration students need to upload a student card.


Cancellation of registration has to be done by email to the AILA2020/2021 Secretariat ( If a cancellation is received before or on June 10, 2021 reimbursement of the registration fee and social events, minus 75 Euro handling charges, will be made. After this date, or if registrants fail to attend the Congress for any reason whatsoever, regrettably no refund (registration fee and social events) can be made.
