Open Invitation: Early Stage Researchers Colloquium
The Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society is pleased to invite all interested researchers to its annual Early Stage Researchers Colloquium to be held in Berlin on 21 November 2013. In cooperation with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation we wish to gather early stage researchers (Ph.D. candidates and post-docs) from all disciplines in order to push ahead with the discussion revolving around Internet research.
Alongside the Colloquium a thematically focused meeting on Chances and Risks of Social Participation will take place in the afternoon of 22 November 2013 including a panel discussion on political participation. We warmly invite you to join us and our guests during this afternoon to gain insight into this key issue within the I&S research community.
We kindly ask you to confirm your participation via the online registration form:
Registration for the colloquium closes on 30 September 2013.
