We are pleased to announce that the call for papers for the WISERD 2015 Annual Conference is now open. The sixth annual WISERD Conference will take place from 30th June to 2nd July 2015 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. We are delighted to be able to confirm that Karl Wilding, Director of Public Policy at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and writer and political economist Will Hutton have agreed to deliver two of our keynote addresses at the 2015 event.
We are inviting proposals which address the following research themes:
- Social Care, Health & Wellbeing
- Civil Society
- Data & Methods
As in previous years, there will also a be a series of Open Sessions reflecting the broader research interests and priorities of the social science and policy sectors within Wales, the UK and internationally.
Open sessions will consist of collections of papers in the same thematic or methodological area. Session convenors for open sessions are encouraged to collate abstracts for proposed sessions prior to submission for consideration. We would then consider this group of abstracts as an entirety.
WISERD conferences have an emphasis on fostering collaboration and inter-disciplinarity and we welcome contributions from colleagues from all academic disciplines and sectors. We also welcome presentations from PhD students and colleagues from the public, policy and practice communities.
We encourage participants to think creatively about the format of their presentation and welcome proposals for a variety of session types, including: single papers, colloquium, workshops, panels and poster/exhibition pieces. For more information on session types, please click here.
To Submit a Proposal
Proposals for papers; colloquium; workshops; panels; workshops and poster/exhibition materials should take the form of a short abstract. An online form is available here.
