ESS Conference: Call for Papers now open

02/07/18

Leading academics can now submit their research using our data to be considered for inclusion at the 4th International ESS Conference being held in Germany during April 2019.

The 4th International ESS Conference - Turbulent times in Europe: Instability, insecurity and inequality - will take place at the University of Mannheim in Germany on 15-17 April 2019.

The Call for Papers formally opens today (Monday 2 July) - the deadline for abstracts is 15 September 2018.

Session proposals already accepted can be broadly categorised into six areas: democracy and political participation; social inequality; climate change; immigration; welfare and methodological aspects of the ESS.

Additionally, the conference committee is seeking papers on health and subjective well-being, anti-immigrant sentiment, human values, justice and other topics where ESS data has been analysed.

The conference committee is requesting that researchers submit an abstract of up to 300 words (plus 3-5 keywords) via email before the September deadline. A decision on submitted papers will be reached before 30 November 2018.

Applicants are asked to include the corresponding session identification number, which can be found on the Call for Papers page within the conference section of our website.

Abstracts can be submitted with up to two different possible sessions for each paper.

The committee also welcomes papers that are not necessarily relevant for any of the proposed sessions, as long as the use of our data can be demonstrated.

Early Career Researchers are reminded that they can submit their paper to be considered for the Jowell-Kaase Prize, due to be announced at the conference.
