Applications for EA Global: London 2019 are now open.

This year’s conference takes place on 18-20 October at The Brewery. You can watch the highlights from last year on the CEA YouTube channel.

If you already have a solid understanding of effective altruism and want to network, gain skills, study more complex problems, or move into a new role, this conference is designed for you.

Early bird tickets are available at £299 until midnight on 31st July, and £399 thereafter. Discount codes will also be available during registration for anyone who needs them.

If you’d like to attend, please apply now. The application only takes a few minutes, and you don't have to pay for anything until you're accepted.

More about admissions

We use an application in order to allocate our limited spots to the attendees who seem most able to help each other pursue their goals. We receive hundreds of applications for each conference, so we usually aren’t able to go into detail about specific decisions, but we hope that the “more about admissions” section on our FAQ is helpful if you have more questions.

Ideas for content

We use a panel of experts in different fields to compile ideas for speakers and topics at EA Global. You can also submit ideas here, including nominating yourself if there’s a talk or workshop you’d like to give.

Thank you for posting this and especially organizing the EAGs in general! They are a valuable community contribution.

One thing I'm curious about is why the prize for a ticket has increased?

Thanks!

This year we did set a higher price, which more accurately reflects the cost of putting on the event. But it’s important to us that the ticket price not block attendees from coming, so we’re continuing the use of discount codes. We hope that people will use the discounts if that’s what makes it practical for them to attend (even if they are not low-income but are, for example, prioritizing donation).

Yeah, I'm also wondering about the price. Is this just because costs have gone up, or is the higher price going towards bigger discounts for those less able to pay the full cost?
