5th South East European Doctoral Student Conference
13 - 14 September 2010, Thessaloniki - Greece
Building on the success of the four previous doctoral conferences which each attracted over 100 papers from countries all over the SE European region and beyond (UK, France, Germany, Holland, Slovenia, Hungary, Poland and as far as Ukraine), we are pleased to announce the organisation of the 5th SEERC Doctoral conference.
The aim of the conference is to further facilitate the exchange of knowledge between young researchers and to consolidate the established network of scholars currently undertaking research in and around the topic of South East Europe. Having identified academic isolation as a financial advance problem that many doctoral students face today, SEERC aims to bring researchers together with the purpose of establishing collaborative links between disciplines, for testing the ground with innovative ideas and for engaging the wider academic community.
The Conference is open to young researchers currently undertaking doctoral study, or in the early years of their research career (up to 2 years following the award of their PhD degree). It has an inter-disciplinary focus and the themes and topics reflect the organisation of research by tracks of interest within SEERC. More information on the suggested topics can be found in the following page.
All papers presented at the Conference will be evaluated by an expert panel of academics and other PhD Conference participants. Each presentation will be followed by questions from the audience and comments/feedback from the panel members. The accepted submissions will be included in the electronic and paper Proceedings published by SEERC. In addition, there will be a general discussion session guided by the panel discussants and participants, addressing various issues on PhD work and research experience in general.
