We are currently inviting submissions of abstracts for papers and posters. We have both themed and open strands for which submissions are invited.
The themed strands are as follows:
In terms of open strands, the programme for the conference is intended to reflect the research interests and priorities of the social science and policy sectors within Wales, the UK and internationally. As such, all topics will be considered for inclusion within the conference programme.
WISERD invites submissions from all areas of the research community including, but not restricted to, academics, students and third sector colleagues.
PhD Student Competition
WISERD, in collaboration with the ESRC Wales Doctoral Training Centre, will be awarding prizes to postgraduate students who present posters.
All posters submitted by postgraduate students will be automatically entered into the competition. If you do not wish your poster to be entered, please note this in the ‘additional information’ section of the abstract proforma.
In addition to the Poster competition, the 2014 WISERD conference will include a ‘collaboration short essay competition’. Entrants must be currently registered PhD students and must be attending the conference.
Entries should be sent to WalesDTC@cardiff.ac.uk by Friday 13 June 2014. They will be judged by the DTC Director and a senior WISERD representative.
