We are pleased to announce the 10th anniversary "International Young Scholar German Socio-Economic Panel Symposium".

The symposium provides an opportunity for doctoral students and young postdoctoral researchers of all 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. This gives you the unique opportunity to receive thorough and individual feedback on your 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. 


We encourage interested young scholars to submit a preliminary paper or an extended abstract (about 350 words, in English) before November 22, 2013. We will inform you whether your proposal has been accepted before December 20, 2013. The deadline for submission of the full paper will be February 28, 2014.

The symposium is organized by the Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS) of the University of Bremen, the Jacobs University, and the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) in collaboration with the Hanse Institute for Advanced Study (HWK).
