Participants may format their presentation according to their preference: paper, seminar discussion, poster or another form.
Every abstract will be anonymously reviewed by a team of scholars who will give feedback and suggestions for improvement, if necessary. Our goal is to assist in developing the abstracts to the best possible form and encourage their authors to submit them to research seminars of the 2017 EABS Annual Meeting and to enter their papers for the EABS Student Prize.
During the Symposium each student will get 20 minutes to present his/her paper, which will be followed by an extended discussion. The EABS Graduate Symposium looks forward to welcoming some senior scholars who will offer feedback and share from their own experience in the field. In addition, the symposium looks forward to continuing its tradition of holding a joint trans-Atlantic session with graduate students from the University of Emory.
Candidates should submit their abstracts and/or posters of no more than 300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 25, 2016. Please do not forget to mention the preferred format in the abstract (i.e. paper, workshop, pre-circulated paper, discussion, poster, etc.).
Participants have to be members of the EABS. The one-year membership for 2017 is €10.
