SHOT 2019 Graduate Student Workshop

SHOT 2019 Graduate Student Workshop: Call for Papers

Call for Papers: 
SHOT 2019 Graduate Student Workshop
Annual Meeting 2019: Milan, Italy
24-27 October 2019
 
 
   SHOT ECIG is pleased to issue the Call for Papers  for the Graduate Student Workshop at the SHOT 2018 Annual Meeting to be held 24-27 October, 2019 in Milan, Italy. 
 
   SHOT invites applications from graduate students to present short papers: 

(up to 10 pages, 1.5-spaced) at an intensive workshop embedded in the formal SHOT conference. The workshop will provide graduate students with an opportunity to develop their presentation skills and to receive extensive feedback on their work from several established scholars.  

   This is an excellent chance to become familiar with SHOT’s scholarly community before presenting a first official paper at a later SHOT conference as a candidate for the Robinson Prize. Accepted students will be listed in the program and eligible to apply for travel funding.

   The workshop will be on a morning or afternoon session during the annual meeting, which runs 24-27 October. Each graduate student will present their paper, with or without slides, and be invited to comment on other papers as appropriate. The workshop will be mediated by Katrin Boniface (ECIG Co-chair), with several established scholars offering their feedback.

 

Submit proposals to this form.

 

***The deadline for proposals is April 27th, 2019 ***

 

While we will try to accommodate all submissions, space and time are limited.
