17 August 2018

25th October, 2018 - 26th October, 2018
University of Sussex

Abstract submission deadline: Monday 10th September 2018

This conference will give PhD students and early career researchers (within 5 years after finishing a PhD) the opportunity to network, collaborate and socialise with others working in regional and urban studies, planning, geography, politics, development studies, economics and related fields. This is an annually run conference and previous participants particularly valued the invaluable feedback received, new ideas and learning how to strategically develop and enhance their profiles for career progression.

The conference will bring together a range of international participants from different disciplines to present and debate their work in a welcoming, supportive and stimulating environment. Participants will be able to enrich their engagement with contemporary research in the field and share their learning.

Experts in academic publishing, funding and impact will be present during the conference and provide insights into how to publish in academic journals, how to build a professional network, how to promote your publications, how and where to apply for funding and how to increase the impact of your work. 

The 2018 conference is supported by the University of Sussex ESRC Doctoral Training Centre and organised in partnership with the School of Global Studies and the Institute of Development Studies.
