5th ECPR Graduate Conference Innsbruck 2014

  • Conference Call
  • His­tory and Aims

    The ECPR’s first Grad­u­ate Stu­dent Con­fer­ence was held at the Uni­ver­sity of Essex in 2006. Grad­u­ate Stu­dent Con­fer­ences are held in alter­nate years to the Gen­eral Con­fer­ence, and have sim­i­larly been held in a range of Euro­pean cities.

    In addi­tion to sec­tions and pan­els, there are round tables, sym­posia, a ple­nary lec­ture and an inter­est­ing social pro­gramme. The ECPR Grad­u­ate Stu­dent Con­fer­ences rep­re­sent an excel­lent oppor­tu­nity for grad­u­ate stu­dents to come together from all over Europe to share their work and expe­ri­ence by pre­sent­ing papers or by sim­ply observing.

    2014 Edi­tion in Innsbruck

    The 5th ECPR Grad­u­ate Con­fer­ence 2014 will take place at the Uni­ver­sity of Inns­bruck, Aus­tria on July 2 – 5, 2014, orga­nized by the Depart­ment of Polit­i­cal Sci­ence at the Inns­bruck School of Polit­i­cal Sci­ence and Soci­ol­ogy.

    The ECPR Grad­u­ate Stu­dent Con­fer­ence is specif­i­cally tai­lored to the needs of grad­u­ate stu­dents look­ing to gain valu­able polit­i­cal sci­ence con­fer­ence expe­ri­ence, net­work, and fur­ther their per­sonal and aca­d­e­mic devel­op­ment in polit­i­cal and social sci­ences. Ide­ally suited to ‘first-​time’ del­e­gates, the con­fer­ence com­bines a com­pre­hen­sive aca­d­e­mic and social pro­gramme over three days. The Grad­u­ate Stu­dent Con­fer­ence is only open to grad­u­ate stu­dents who are study­ing for a Master’s degree, a PhD, or who hold junior post­doc­toral positions.

    Con­fer­ence Format

    The aca­d­e­mic pro­gramme con­sists of lec­tures, round­ta­bles and themed Sec­tions and Pan­els cov­er­ing all the main areas of polit­i­cal sci­ence, polit­i­cal the­ory, inter­na­tional rela­tions and Euro­pean stud­ies. Each Panel will include 3 – 5 Papers to be pre­sented and dis­cussed. Atten­dees can present and dis­cuss their work or sim­ply observe and become involved in other ele­ments of the pro­gramme. Indi­vid­u­als may per­form each con­fer­ence func­tion (Sec­tion Chair, Panel Chair, Dis­cus­sant, Paper giver) only once within the aca­d­e­mic pro­gramme and Panel Chair(s) may not present a Paper in the same Panel that they are Chairing.
