Reminder: SIRCA’s Young Researchers Workshop 7 Call for Papers

Reminder: SIRCA are seeking submissions for the 2017 Young Researchers Workshop 7. The deadline for paper submissions is September 1st, 2017.

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.

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.
