Terms and Conditions

By proceeding, registrants accept the Terms and Conditions of the AFALA Conference, and agree with the AFALA Conference immediate performance of services.

1) All registrations to the (SCOPUS/ISI) SOAS GLOCAL AFALA 2023 are refundable in full up to four months from the date of payment, and will be refunded directly to the payer’s payment source. However, this four month period can not exceed one month prior to the start of the confeence, where, four weeks prior to the conference, no refund can be made, except under very specific and extreme circumstances (death, extreme sickness, natural disasters, strikes). The conference organizers shall have full jurusdiction over such a decision, and the registrant will accept such a decision. However, after ths standard four month period, there will be a $20 USD fee, and the refund will be sent to the PayPal account, as The SOAS GLOCAL AFALA cannot refund directly to a credit card after this four month period. At this time, PayPal will take a small transaction fee.

2) All attendants and registrants, and predominantly students and affiliates who receive lowered registration, must be prepared to present identification upon arrival at the conference, and hence upon receiving conference badges.

3) All registration fees must be forwarded to the GLOCAL AFALA by the date 26 September 2023 in order for a place in the conference proceedings, and hence for a place in The GLOCAL AFALA to be guaranteed. The GLOCAL AFALA has received an overwhelming response globally, and we are attempting to accommodate to everyone, but space is limited.
