Conference details

The Regional Studies Association’s Annual Conference 2020 #RSA20 will be the association’s largest knowledge exchange and networking gathering to date. It is being held in partnership with the School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia.

This four-day conference brings together academics and policymakers to exchange news, views and research findings from the fields of regional studies and science, regional and economic development, policy and planning. There will be representation from around 50 different global territories as the RSA gathers both established experts and early career researchers in the beautiful city of Ljubljana.

The conference will feature 450+ presentations, high-profile plenary speakers, a number of specially convened sessions, workshops, networking sessions, walking tours and field trips. The social programme will include the conference dinner and a reception, side events, sport activities, exhibitor stalls and post-conference tours to explore Slovenia.

#RSA20 will address topics concerned with regional and urban development, policy and research. The Association takes a broad view of its remit but all submissions will be refereed prior to acceptance to ensure minimum standards of quality and field relevance and innovation are maintained. In addition to abstract submissions, the RSA welcomes proposals for special sessions, networking events, book launches, author meets critic sessions, etc.

You will need to register on the Regional Studies Association website to attend the conference.
