2019 NYC Workshop

Fathomless Futures: Algorithmic and Imagined

SASE will host its fourth Early Career Workshop at its 2019 Conference in New York City. The Workshop provides additional career development and networking opportunities at SASE for PhD students and researchers having obtained their PhD after March 2016. Previous Workshop participants are not eligible to participate a second time.

The SASE Early Career Workshop (ECW) provides career development guidance and networking opportunities for early career researchers presenting their work at the annual SASE meeting. It is a one-day workshop that runs the day before the main conference and is hosted by senior SASE professors, including a pre-Workshop evening meal with networking event, sessions on getting published, career development, and an introduction to socio-economics. It also provides an opportunity for longer and deeper discussion of applicants’ conference papers.

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 (under 10,000 words), a short two-page CV, and complete the specific form via the conference submission system by 14 January 2019 28 January 2019. Any application without any 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. Likewise, participants who receive another award for their paper (i.e., the EHESS Fondation France-Japon award) will not receive further support for the Workshop.

There will be approximately 15-20 competitively allocated places at the Workshop. Notification of acceptance will be made on 11 March 2019 01  April 2019 08 April 2019. 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 ensure gender and geographical balance at equal paper quality levels.
