We are pleased to announce the 11th International Young Scholar German Socio-Economic Panel Symposium. The symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students and young postdoctoral researchers of all relevant disciplines (e.g. economics, demography, psychology, sociology, public health, geography) to present empirical research in progress – carried out with panel data (especially SOEP data). Each accepted paper will be discussed by a leading senior researcher, giving participants the unique opportunity to receive thorough and individual feedback on their research project.

Moreover, we will award the Joachim-Frick Memorial Prize for the most innovative, best written and best presented symposium paper. The award comes with € 200 prize money.

Call for Papers
We encourage interested young scholars to submit a preliminary paper or an extended abstract (about 350 words in English) before November 21, 2014. We will inform you whether your proposal has been accepted by December 19, 2014. The deadline for submission of the full paper is February 10, 2015.

All accepted papers will be made accessible to commentators one month prior to the symposium. During the symposium, each presenter will have about 20 minutes for the presentation, 10 minutes for commentary by a senior researcher and 15 minutes for plenary discussion. The official language of the symposium is English.
