ESF- International PhD Mentoring-Workshop on ‘Children’s Well-Being’
13 September 2012, 9-17.00, Goethe University of Frankfurt am Main, Germany
The International Society for Child Indicators Research (ISCI) in collaboration with the European Science Foundation (ESF) is organizing an international mentoring workshop for PhD students. This PhD workshop offers the opportunity for doctoral students to discuss their PhD projects with international experts in the fields of qualitative and quantitative research on children’s well-being. After giving a 20 minutes presentation the participants will get feedback from well-known members of the ISCI scientific board and will get the opportunity to debate with them and with other PhD students from Europe.
The presentations of the PhD projects can be about:
• General questions about research design
• Research methods for research with children
• Analysis of data collection
• Theoretical debates about children’s well-being
As this is a mentoring workshop, problems and questions about work in progress can be discussed within the presentations.
A limited number of grants are available to cover accommodation and travel (200-400€). For application, we request an abstract of 500 words maximum (including the research design you are using or planning to use in your PhD project and the question you want to focus on in your presentation). After a selection, a number of applicants will be invited to submit a full paper by 1 September 2012. Selected papers by the participants will be published in the ‘Child Indicators Research journal’.
Deadline for applications: 15 June 2012
