Call for papers - Research Conference 2013

The Understanding Society Research Conference 2013 call for papers is now open.

The conference provides an international forum for the exchange of research based on longitudinal data. An important aim of the event is to bring together people from different disciplines. Papers may be based on any aspect of economics, sociology, politics, social psychology, or research and survey methods.

Organisers are not only keen to receive papers using Understanding Society and the British Household Panel Survey, but also the European Household Panel, the European Union Statistics of Income and Living Conditions and from other UK and non-UK longitudinal studies, as well as comparative papers using the major national panel surveys and the Cross National Equivalent File.

300 word abstracts of papers for presentation at the Conference closed on 15 March 2013.

The Conference is being held at the University of Essex from Wednesday 24 July to Friday 26 July 2013.
