Call for Papers – Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy PhD Symposium

23-24 March 2010, University of Leeds

In order to build capacities and communities of early stage researchers in areas related to climate change economics and policy, CCCEP will host a symposium for PhD students on March 23rd and 24th at the University of Leeds in the UK. Organised over two days, the symposium will include keynote lectures and research methods workshops, and it will enable PhD students from a range of organizations to present and receive constructive feedback on their research ideas and findings either in seminars or through poster presentations. The symposium will include presentations from students at all stages of the PhD process – and it will consider key conceptual, methodological and empirical dimensions.

Abstract Submissions Process

As space at the symposium is limited, we invite those interested in attending to send a 500 word abstract of their research, noting whether it is research in preparation (i.e. in the first year of the PhD), in process (i.e. in the second year) or near to completion. Abstracts will then be reviewed by members of CCCEP, and selected abstracts will be invited either to present or to prepare a poster for the symposium. Abstracts should be sent to Centre Administrator, Margo Hanson (mbers m.hanson@leeds.ac.uk) by 8th February. Comments from the review process and decisions on who will be invited to attend the symposium will be returned by 22nd February. Those attending the symposium will normally be expected to fund their own travel and accommodation expenses.
