Hello Everyone!

The Thirty-Seventh International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts is right around the corner! The on-line registration system will be open until March 2, 2016. After March 2, the on-line system will be closed temporarily so that the conference committee can commit to the hotel for space and meal requirements. The system will open again for on-site registration on March 16th. Please note that date changes for registration purposes are reckoned by local time in Orlando, Florida

Although you can join the association even if you don’t attend the conference, current IAFA membership is required if you are presenting a paper at the conference. If you haven’t already done so, you can renew your membership and register for the conference here:

If you are not presenting, but still want to attend the conference and hear some amazing papers, you do not have to be a member of IAFA, but you do have to register for the conference. You can register for the conference here:

A list of all fees associated with the conference can be found here and a “How To” guide for membership renewal can be found here, and a “How To” guide for registering and paying for the conference can be found here.

Student Caucus (SCIAFA):

The purpose of the Student Caucus (SCIAFA) is to foster and promote growth, scholarship, and fellowship among the student members of the IAFA and to address the needs of students working in the field of the fantastic, by establishing mentoring and other programs, through coordinating efforts with the main body of the IAFA. If you are a student member of the IAFA, you are automatically a member of SCIAFA
