First Spanish Congress announced


The Spanish National Committee of the European Social Survey (ESS) has announced that its first Spanish Congress event will be held in Madrid during September 2018.

‘Spanish Society in Comparative Perspective: 15 years of ESS in Spain’ will bring together academics from a wide range of disciplines to showcase their research.

The Congress will take place on 20-21 September 2018 at the Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas (CIS) in Madrid, Spain.

It will be an opportunity for speakers to share ideas, discuss results and show the types of research that can be carried out by using ESS data.

Academic papers submitted by early career researchers will be considered for a new prize: the ‘Best ESS Junior Paper Award’. The winner will receive €300 and the runner-up will receive €200.

PhD students currently registered at a university and those who defended their dissertation after September 2015 are eligible for the award.

There are also a number of Student Accommodation Grants available for PhD, Master or Bachelor students. These will cover the costs associated with attending the conference, and include one night’s accommodation in Madrid.

The Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas (CIS) will include a selection of the papers presented at the Congress in its ‘Academia’ publication following the event.

The deadline for submitting an abstract has been extended until Sunday 6 May 2018.
