Call for Papers: SIRCA Young Researchers Workshop 2017 (YRW7)

SIRCA is pleased to open the call for papers inviting our young researchers to submit a current research paper to be reviewed and considered for the SIRCA Young Researchers Workshop 7 (YRW7). This year the event will be held at the University of Melbourne (Victoria) over Monday, November 20 – Tuesday, November 21, 2017.

SIRCA will cover flight expenses as well as one night’s accommodation for the author of the papers selected for inclusion on the workshop program. The Young Researchers Workshop event will provide young researchers (those currently engaged in PhD research or whose PhD thesis was completed less than five years ago) the opportunity to present their paper to a panel of distinguished researchers and receive feedback on their paper from a discussant in a relaxed workshop environment.

To qualify for inclusion the presenting author must be a “young researcher” from a SIRCA Member University. Use of SIRCA data or other innovative data sets are highly encouraged.

The deadline for paper submissions is September 1, 2017.

To submit please send two copies of your paper: one as a Word Document and one as a PDF Document to All Word Documents need a cover page that should contain the following; names of the authors including those who are Young Researchers highlighted, and full contact details of the lead author and person submitting the paper including email, mobile phone and name of University. PDF and Word Documents should not contain author details in the body of the paper.

If you have any questions, please contact
