Please see below some information about the Winter Seminar of the German-speaking section (GfR) of the European Regional Science Association (ERSA). Just to add that the conference language is English.
I would like to invite you to the annual winter seminar of the German-speaking section (GfR) of the European Regional Science Association (ERSA). It will take place between the 16th and 23rd of February 2019 in Matrei in Osttirol (Austria). Abstract submissions (max. 500 words) in all sub-fields of regional science are welcome until the 15th of November 2018 via the homepage of GfR https://gfr.ersa.org/(please also state if you have restrictions regarding the day of presentation when submitting your abstract). You will receive a notification of acceptance no later than the end of November. The seminar language will be English.
The seminar has a rather unique format: sessions are only held in the afternoons and evenings, meaning that there is ample spare time for networking, paper writing, the development of new research ideas, research collaborations, and last but not least for enjoying the beautiful Alpine nature and winter sports activities in the surroundings. Time slots of one hour are reserved for each presentation, providing plenty of room for in-depth discussion. You can find the seminar programs of the previous year here: https://gfr.ersa.org/category/vergangene-veranstaltungen/winterseminar/
Participation in the seminar is free for first-time attendants and members of GfR or other regional sections of ERSA.
