Call for Papers

Abstract submission (January 1 – March 1, 2016):

The ISA RC28 invites researchers to contribute to its annual summer conference to be held in Bern, Switzerland, August 29–31, 2016. We expect contributions on the broad theme of social inequalities, social stratification, and social mobility. However, papers relevant to the theme of the conference, “Economic inequalities, deprivation, and poverty”, are particularly welcome.

Participants should submit a title, an extended abstract (800–1000 words), and up to 5 keywords. The extended abstract should include a clear description of the research question, theoretical framework, data, analytical strategy, and main findings. Please also choose up to three topics from the predefined list of topics shown on the submission page and specify the suggested type of contribution: oral presentation or poster presentation. All submitted contributions will be subject to a peer review process. The type of contribution might be subject to change by the program committee.

Make your submission online using the conference management tool (abstract submission opens January 1, 2016). The deadline for submission is March 1, 2016. First authors will be notified about the outcomes of their submissions by April 15, 2016.

The deadline for submission of the full papers is August 15, 2016.
