Dear ASPO members or potential ASPO members,

It’s that time of the year when we get to hop on the train of thought and ride it straight into the ASPO conference! We are pleased to inform you that the registration for the ASPO conference 2023, to be held at the Railway Museum in Utrecht on the 20th and 21st of April 2023, is now open. Whether you’re a seasoned conductor or a fresh-faced passenger, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to connect, collaborate, and make a real impact on the world around us. So let’s get ready to blow some minds, pull some mental switches, and steer the train of progress in the right direction!

You can register and pay via this survey.

The rates for the conference are:

  • Student – 75 Euros
  • PhD student – 174 Euros
  • Other – 212 Euros

In addition, there will be a vegetarian dinner (and Pubquiz!) on Thursday evening, 20 April, 6.30u at the “Wachtkamer 3e klasse“ at the Railway Museum. For those who would like to attend the dinner, we charge an additional 60 Euros. You can indicate your dietary wishes (e.g., vegan; allergies) in the survey.

We are in the final phase of designing the program, and hope to finalize this in the next two to three weeks. Note that if you are presenting, you still need to register for the conference. The registration closes at April 5, 2023. So hop aboard, you don’t want to miss this ASPO ride!

Best wishes,

On behalf of the 2023 ASPO conference program, poster and student committees,

Elena Bacchini
