Symposium Eighth International Young Scholar German Socio-Economic Panel Symposium

For the 8th time the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS) of the University of Bremen and the Jacobs University and the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) in collaboration with the Hanse Institute for Advanced Study (HWK) are pleased to announce the
"International Young Scholar German Socio-Economic Panel Symposium".

The symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students of all disciplines (e.g. economics, demography, psychology, sociology, public health, geography) at any stage of their doctoral thesis, to present empirical research in progress - carried out with panel data (especially SOEP data) - and to discuss theoretical, conceptual and empirical issues with senior researchers. We encourage interested young scholars to submit abstracts.

If you would like to attend the symposium, please submit an abstract of your topic (350 words, in English) together with complete contact information before November 15, 2011. We will inform you whether your proposal has been accepted before December 15, 2011. The deadline for submission of the full paper (3.000 words) will be February 15, 2012.

All accepted papers will be made accessible to commentators and participants one month prior to the symposium. During the symposium each presenter will have about 20 minutes for presentation, 10 minutes comments by a senior researcher, and 10 minutes plenary discussion. The official language of the symposium will be English.

Catering as well as accommodation for non-locals will be provided. The conference fee is € 25.
