A large part of the program of the IAPSS Autumn Convention 2017 consists of student panels. Here students from all levels (undergraduate, graduate, PhD, post-doc) get the opportunity to present their work and get feedback from other students.

Seven time slots of the conference are dedicated to student panels, with three panels on different topics running at the same time. Each panel features 3 to 5 panelists who all present their paper in a short presentation. The sessions are moderated by a chair. All papers are discussed by a discussant, who gives feedback after every presentation. Finally, the audience gets the opportunity to ask questions or share remarks, making these sessions highly interactive.

IAPSS Award for Academic Excellence

During each IAPSS conference, one paper is awarded with the IAPSS Award for Academic Excellence. All panelists who have submitted their final paper on time will be considered. The winner of the award will be announced during the closing session of the World Congress. If you wish to be considered for the IAPSS Award for Academic Excellence, please submit your paper to convention-panels@iapss.org until August 6, 2017, 23:59 CET.

Full Papers

The final version of your paper should be submitted no later than August 31, 2017, 23:59 CET. You can submit your paper here.
