Selection of abstracts:
All papers will be refereed by members of the Scientific Committee on the basis of the abstract submitted.
Most papers will be presented in parallel workshops. Additionally, a special session hosted by the EMES PhD Student Network (created after the 1st EMES PhD Summer School) will be organised during the conference. This special session is open to all PhD students, and will include some parallel discussions (led by EMES members) with the aim of networking, sharing ideas, and interacting with professors and senior researchers.
PhD students may present their papers in the main workshops, but they will have the alternative option of presenting them in special PhD paper sessions if they feel their research ideas and findings are at an early stage of development. PhD students should indicate their preferences when they submit an abstract. The referees will make the final decision as to whether a paper is accepted and in which type of workshop it is to be presented.
Those authors invited to participate will have to submit their final, complete article by 27 May 2011. All authors must formally register for the conference.
Financial support: a certain number of registration subsidies will be available for researchers from non-OECD countries and PhD students whose papers have been accepted. Should you be interested in applying for a registration subsidy, please indicate so at the time of submitting your abstract.
