Dear MSA Colleagues, 

As we draw closer to the MSA Congress at the University of Valencia May 28 – 31, 2024, we have some important information to share with you.



It is the intention of the Congress Program Committee to have the Preliminary Program (without dates and times) posted on the MSA website the first week in April. The purpose is to give you the opportunity to make any necessary corrections/changes to the title of your paper, your name, institution, etc.


As the Program Committee moves to the final stages of finalizing the program, we ask those who plan to attend the Congress to please get registered. The Program Committee has over three dozen proposal submissions from individuals who have not yet registered. If you plan to attend, please register now; if you do not plan to attend, please let us know, as  this information will greatly facilitate the work of the committee. Also, if you have not submitted your paper abstract, please do so as quickly as possible.



 At this writing I only have two rooms remaining for the post tour. Several of you have indicated you plan to participate but have not registered. Any rooms not occupied by April 1 we will need to cancel or the MSA will be responsible to pay for them. Please get your Congress Post Tour Registration in and remember, THE TOUR STARTS IN VALENCIA AND ENDS IN MADRID. Complete details are on this MSA Website.


See you in Valencia,

Ben Taggie
