Young Researchers Workshop
** The IAPS Young Researchers Workshop (YRW) is going on as planned. We will come back in a few days with updated deadlines and more information on the virtual conference. In the meantime, please consult our FAQ about the transition to a virtual conference.
The IAPS Young Researchers Workshop (YRW) will be held prior to the IAPS 2020 conference on June 21 and 22. It is intended to give postgraduate students of all IAPS-relevant disciplines an opportunity to discuss their research proposals and ongoing work with leading scholars and academics, and to build international networks with other students in the field of people-environment studies. The workshop language is English.
Sessions regroup students working in similar areas or with similar methodologies with two or three mentors. Every student has 15-20 minutes speaking time and ensuing discussion with mentors and other students is given 15 minutes. Prior to the workshop, papers are shared with mentors and other participants.
Once their abstract has been accepted, students will be well instructed about the structure of the submitted paper as well as the content of their PowerPoint presentation. *to be announced soon
