Building on the success of the five previous Doctoral conferences which each attracted over 100 papers from countries all over the SE European region and beyond (UK, Greece, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Sweden, Serbia, FYR of Macedonia, Belgium and as far as USA), we are pleased to announce the organisation of the 6th South East European Doctoral Student Conference (DSC 2011). DSC 2011 will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece, on the 19th and 20th of September, 2011.
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 problem that many doctoral students face today, DSC 2011 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 topic areas covered by the conference can be found on the conference website.
