UACES Annual Conference 2022

5-8 September 2022
Lille, France

Our 52nd Annual Conference

The conference will be a wonderful opportunity to meet colleagues and other academics in the historic city of Lille and to reunite with UACES colleagues in person for the first time in many months to discuss topics related to European Studies and Europe. 

This year UACES will be offering the main conference as a three-day in-person event. We will also be running a one-day virtual event on Thursday 8 September, to enable those who cannot travel to Lille to participate and present their work.
There will be two separate registrations on offer – tickets for the virtual event will give you access to the one-day virtual conference as well as to livestreams of the plenary sessions in Lille. In-Person tickets will give you access to both the in-person and virtual events.

On submitting their paper, participants will be expected to indicate whether they wish to present in-person or virtually. Panels for these events will be timetabled separately and as such, UACES can only accept a change to/from in-person to virtual participation if requested before 31 May 2022. We cannot guarantee any requests to change made after this date except in instances where self-isolation or travel bans are imposed requiring virtual participation.

UACES expects all conference participants to adhere to local covid guidance at the time of the event.

CARA Donations for Academics at Risk

UACES is offering the option to donate to the work of the Council for At-Risk Academics. When registering for the UACES annual conference in Lille (prices listed below), you can opt-in for a donation to CARA, a charity based in the UK that provides urgently-needed help to academics in immediate danger, those forced into exile, and many who choose to work on in their home countries despite serious risks. UACES will match donations from members up to a total of £1500.

What does it cost?

There are different price rates, depending on your membership and professional level. The list below is provisional and can be subject to change depending on incoming papers. We will issue a rebate of the difference in price to anyone who becomes a UACES member within 10 days of registering for the conference at a non-member rate. Indicated prices exclude VAT.
