5th ECPR Graduate Student Conference, University of Innsbruck 3 - 5 July 2014

The ECPR Graduate Student Conference is specifically tailored to the needs of graduate students looking to gain valuable political science conference experience, network, and further their personal and academic development in political and social sciences. Ideally suited to 'first-time' delegates, the conference combines a comprehensive academic and social programme over three days.  The Graduate Student Conference is only open to graduate students who are studying for a Master's degree, a PhD, or who hold junior postdoctoral positions.

The format of the conference
The academic programme consists of lectures, roundtables and themed Sections and Panels covering all the main areas of political science, political theory, international relations and European studies. Each Panel will include 3-5 Papers to be presented and discussed. Attendees can present and discuss their work or simply observe and become involved in other elements of the programme. Individuals may perform each conference function (Section Chair, Panel Chair, Discussant, Paper giver) only once within the academic programme and Panel Chair(s) may not present a Paper in the same Panel that they are Chairing.


Conference funding opportunities

Funding opportunities up to €250 are available for travel and accommodation to individuals affiliated with ECPR member institutions (subject to meeting the required criteria). The funding application process will open next year and details will be available on the website in due course.
