CfP – PolMeth Europe Meeting, Hamburg

We are pleased to call for proposals for the first PolMeth Europe Meeting in Hamburg between March 13 – 15th 2020. The deadline is December 13th 2019.

Recent data driven and technological advances have a deep impact on Society, Research and Development and therefore also Political Science. New data and new tools revolutionize what we can do with empirical analyses.

To allow for closer networking among data driven Political Scientists on the old continent, we are organizing PolMeth Europe from 13 March – 15 March 2020, at the University of Hamburg, Germany.

It is our goal to bring together junior and senior scholars with a sweet tooth for innovative research methods and their applications. The conference follows the well-established PolMeth format: Faculty have the opportunity to present papers and receive in-depth feedback. PhD students are invited to contribute posters, with ample opportunity for input from more senior colleagues. We welcome proposals that focus on methodological innovations as well as those that apply cutting-edge methods to empirical problems of substantive interest. We also will have two morning keynotes from significant scholars in political methodology.

Eager to actively build a vibrant community of enthusiastic methodologists, we extend the strict conference format with a series of social, mentoring, and networking activities. Financial support for a limited number of PhD students will be available. 

We encourage submissions that reflect the diversity of the profession. Aware that our impact as a subfield comes through embracing this diversity, we actively seek and welcome people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities.

Please submit your paper and poster proposals including a title and an abstract (max 500 words) until 13th December 2019 to polmeth-europeprotonmailcom

Decisions will be sent out by January 3rd 2020.

Registration for the conference will end on 7th February 2020. 

If you have any questions please contact the local organizer, Vera E. Troeger by email: vera.eva.troegeruni-hamburgde.

You can find up-to-date information on the dedicated homepage

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions.
