PhD contest
PhD paper contest
Our generous Steering committee member Katrin Voltmer has established a prize for the best PhD paper of the conference. The content of the prize is 150 euro; it has been established for three consecutive years. The eligible papers must be written exclusively by young scholars (PhD and/or Master students); both individual and group submissions are welcome. The volume of the paper must be between 4,000 and 6,000 words in English (excluding bibliography but including tables, pictures, and other appendices).

Both options work only for the papers actually presented at the conference.

To participate in the contest, please follow these simple steps:

1) Submit a 300-word abstract to by January 15, 2018;

2) Wait for the decision of the selection committee;

3) In case of a positive decision on your abstract, please submit the full version to the same email by March 1, 2018.

Formatting guidelines will be provided to the authors of the abstracts selected for presentations after January 27, 2018. The general guideline is the following: the pages should be 4,000 to 6,000 words including the title page, plain text body, references, acknowledgements, and appendices (tables, figures etc.). Please attach the title page to your letter in a separate file for the blind peer-review purposes.

MS Word files only will be accepted for reviewing.
