2020 Virtual Workshop

Development Today: Accumulation, Surveillance, Redistribution

SASE will host its fifth Early Career Workshop at its 2020 Conference online. 

The SASE Early Career Workshop (ECW) is a one-day workshop that provides an opportunity for a longer and deeper discussion of applicants’ conference papers and is hosted by senior SASE professors.

Applicants must be PhD students and researchers having obtained their PhD within 3 years of the annual SASE meeting. If you would like to apply for the Workshop, your paper abstract should be submitted and accepted to the main conference through the normal process. Applicants must also submit their full paper, a short two-page CV, and a short one-page case for support to SASE via the submissions system before the general submissions deadline passes (January 10, 2020 January 24, 2020)Any application without all of these elements will not be considered for inclusion in the Workshop.

While two papers may be submitted to the SASE conference, applicants may submit only one paper to be considered for the ECW. Only those papers accepted to the main conference will be considered for inclusion in the Workshop.

Each ECW participant will have their full main conference fee waived. Full conference accommodation will also be paid, including the additional night of accommodation for the Workshop. Participants will receive a certificate of participation. In the case of co-authored papers, please note that only one author may participate in the Workshop for a given paper. Participants not requiring support for travel or accommodations should state this in their one-page letter.

There will be approximately 15-20 competitively allocated places at the Workshop. Notification of acceptance will be made by April 2020. These places will be awarded on the basis of the quality of the paper submitted to the SASE main conference, as assessed by the ECW Committee and Faculty. Additional criteria for ranking papers receiving the same quality assessment include PhD status, academic status, and co-authorship. In particular, priority will be given to:

  1. PhD students closer to their defense;
  2. Researchers who just received their PhD;
  3. Applicants without a tenured position;
  4. Single-author papers;
  5. Applicants without tenured co-authors.

Throughout the selection process, the SASE ECW Committee and Faculty are committed to ensuring gender and geographical balance at equal paper quality levels.

Previous Workshop participants are not eligible to participate a second time.
