2018 Registration



A) Conference Registration

The CPSA conference is held within the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences (Congress). The dates of the Congress are May 26 - June 1, 2018. The CPSA conference dates are May 30th to June 1, 2018. Congress registration is now open. Attendees are able to register by mail or on-line via the Congress website HERE. The early registration date is 31 March 2018. CPSA is association #48 within the Congress.

All attendees must register for the Congress AND the CPSA conference. Anyone who does not causes a loss of revenue for the CPSA and is responsible for any increase in Congress registration fees. By not paying, participants only serve to withhold much needed support for the CPSA and penalize their paying colleagues with higher fees.

Paper, poster and 3MT presenters are required to pay their registration fees by the early registration deadline or see their presentation removed from the programme by Friday, April 6, 2018.

In order to attend the CPSA conference, all attendees are required to pay two fees:

1) Congress Registration Fee:

  • $70 + 5% GST = $73.50 - students, retired and unwaged attendees registering by March 31;
  • $180 + 5% GST = $189 - regular attendees registering by March 31;

  • $90 + 5% GST = $94.50 - students, retired and unwaged attendees registering as of April 1;

As CPSA President, I invite all conference delegates to join me for this year’s President’s Dinner, which will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Centre Regina on Thursday, May 31 at 6 pm.

For faculty supervisors in a position to do so, I encourage them to bring their students to the dinner as their guests. This is a great opportunity to meet other political scientists! Spouses, partners, friends and other guests of delegates are also invited.

The President’s Dinner is also when we announce the winners of our prizes and honour their achievements. We hope all members of the prize juries and shortlisted colleagues will be present. The five new members of the CPSA Board of Directors and the new President and Vice-President will also be announced and introduced at the dinner. Join us in welcoming them to the Board!
