Young Researchers Workshop

RMIT Melbourne
RMIT University, city campus featuring Storey Halls Green Brain venue for the Young Researchers Workshop

Young Researchers Workshop is now Closed

A workshop for young researchers will take place on Tuesday 26th June 2018 just ahead of the commencement of main conference. The workshop provides an opportunity for conference delegates who are graduate students (at Masters and PhD level) to discuss their dissertations, publication plans and job market issues amongst themselves and with other more experienced scholars who share an interest in questions surrounding economic aspects of art and culture.

Dr. Jordi McKenie from Macquarie University will organise the workshop and members of the Executive Board of the ACEI, including Prof. Alan Collins from Nottingham Trent University will participate.

Interested graduate students should submit the Young Researcher Workshop Expression of Interest Form by January 31st, 2018. To apply for a space in the Young Researchers Workshop applicants will need to submit a 700 word abstract of their dissertation, indicate which stage they are at, provide their institutional affiliation and title of their graduate program, as well as what type of job they envisage after graduation (academic, government, consulting). Applicants will be informed of whether they have been allocated a place at the workshop by February 28th, 2018.

Please note that participants at the Young Researchers Workshop are also encouraged to respond to the Call for Paper if their research is at the stage where they have sufficient findings to present a full paper as part of the main conference programme. It is however not necessary that Young Researcher Workshop participants submit a paper to the main conference, especially for those participants who are in the early stages of their research. As such it is expected that not all Young Researcher Workshop participants will present at the main conference, but it is expected that all Young Researcher Workshop participants will be attending the main conference. All Young Researchers attending the workshop are also encouraged to submit a poster explaining their research which will displayed in communal areas at the main conference. Once you have been accepted into the Young Researchers Workshop further information will be provided regarding poster submissions.

If you are a Young Researcher Workshop participant who presents a paper for the main ACEI conference you will be eligible for the Presidents Prize which recognizes the best paper from a PhD student presented at the conference. Benefits of this prize include an expedited process for publication in the Journal of Cultural Economics.
