Seventh Annual Research Student Conference: Creating Communities: Local, National  and Global. University of York, England, 23 -24 May 2012

Researchers for the New Europe - Creating Communities: Local, National and Global

The CiCe annual research student conference accepts 12 students each year to present their papers, give and get feedback to and from fellow students and receive comments from experienced tutors in doctoral research.

This year the selected students represented universities of six countries. The biggest number of participants carry out their doctoral research in UK universities, but we had students from Spain, France, Portugal, Turkey and Poland. In terms of their country of origin we had students who come from Colombia, Slovakia, Bangladesh. 

The Scientific Committee of the student conference consisted of Luigi Cajani, University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’, Italy; Penelope Harnett, University of West England, UK;  Roger Johansson, Lund University and Malmö University, Sweden; and was chaired by  Márta Fülöp, Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary. All of the students presented highly interesting research therefore it was not easy to choose the best works. One important criterion the committee applied was the originality of the submitted work, either in terms of its theoretical background or its methodology.

The committee awarded 3 Best Paper Awards.  The winners were:

Rosie Bosse Chitty, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK.

Camilo Tamayo, University of Huddersfield, UK.
