'Crisis or Renewal in Europe(an studies)', 13th UACES Student Forum conference, Kent Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) and The Institute for European Studies (IES-VUB) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, 18-19 June 2012.
The UACES Student Forum is organising its Thirteenth Annual Conference, on 18-19 June 2012 at the Kent Brussels School of International Studies (BSIS) and The Institute for European Studies (IES-VUB) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. This two day conference aims to provide a friendly environment in which postgraduate students can gain experience of presenting research and develop contacts with other researchers in their field. The conference is aimed at research students of all levels and proposals are welcome from all students working in the field of European Studies within various disciplines. Some established academics and/or postdoctoral researchers will also be present to provide feedback and there will be a number of keynote speakers who have contributed extensively to the development of European Studies.
There is no registration fee to attend the conference but delegates would be expected to pay for a conference dinner on the 18th June (optional to attend).
In order to submit abstract proposals for both panels and papers please complete the Paper Submission Form (which can be downloaded from http://www.uaces.org/events/conferences/brussels/ ) and then submit by clicking the `Submit by Email' button in the top-right corner of the document. The deadline for submission of proposals is 23 March 2011. Successful applicants can expect to hear back by the beginning of May.
If this method of submission is unavailable please send both paper and panel proposal to Elise Rietveld ([log in to unmask] ) and Lara Kennedy ([log in to unmask]) together with the affiliation of the author(s), email address, research area, and year of PhD study.
Postgraduate students may propose a paper individually. The Student Forum Committee will organise papers proposed in this manner into panels. We also encourage students to form pre-organised panels by using the Student Forum’s Euroresearch mailing list to contact other paper-givers. Panels should contain one Chair (who is not presenting a paper) and three paper-givers. The proposals should include a summary of the overall theme and objective of the panel (max.200 word) along with a 200-word abstract for each of the three papers in the submission form. Proposals should be submitted by the Convenor (usually the chair or a paper-giver) of the panel with the agreement of all other participants.
The organisers of the UACES Annual Conference, to be held in Passau (See the UACES website) recommend that students planning to attend and present there, first attend and present at the Student Forum Thirteenth Annual Conference in Brussels.
Further details of the conference will be posted on the Student Forum website -http://www.uaces.org/events/conferences/brussels/ as they become available.
