Dear IPID members, We welcome you to a research workshop at Örebro University June 8-9, 2009.
For those of you struggling with a research paper, a project proposal or a thesis… this is where you want to be! What we offer you is two days of support and discussions in a friendly and creative atmosphere. We will read, listen and discuss during the days and have fun (BBQ at Annika´s place!) in the evening.
The workshop will be a forum where postgraduates can present their ongoing work and get feedback from their peers. The workshop is designed to provide an informal environment where postgraduates can share their research findings and ideas in a non-judgemental way. By attending the workshop postgraduates can improve their understanding of the most significant current research issues and share research ideas and practices in the field of ICT4D. The purpose is also to further strengthen the existing network between researchers within ICT4D.
The workshop is open to all postgraduate students with interests in the area of ICT4D (who are IPID-members!). Further requirements are that you will have to send in a draft or finished paper/thesis/research proposal that you want to discuss and that you are willing to read somebody else’s work in advance. Every one participating will have to make a short presentation of their ongoing work, but focus will be on the discussions. In order to stimulate these discussions all papers will be distributed in advance and each paper will have a main discussant.
To register your interest in the workshop, please send an e-mail to Annika Andersson email@example.com by the latest May 1st. To permit feedback from the selected discussants we will also need your paper no later than May 15th. To maintain the intimacy and richness necessary for this type of event, the number of participants is limited to 15. First come, first served.
There is no registration or attendance fee. There will be hand-outs offered free of charge and IPID will sponsor each participant with up to 1000 SEK for travels and accommodation. We will pay for the food.
