Due to the continued success of the pre-conference, we are once again accepting submissions for 2019. Everybody planning to attend the Annual SoFiE conference is invited to register and attend this Pre-Conference to help raise the quality and recognition of the young scholars in our organization!
The pre-conference provides students, postdocs, and untenured professors (with up to three years in a tenure-track job) the opportunity to present their work prior to the regular conference. Joint work with senior co-authors is eligible for the pre-conference as long as the presenting co-author is eligible.
Papers eligible for the pre-conference are treated exactly as other submissions for the SoFiE conference. However, if they do not make the program, they are automatically considered for the pre-conference. Finally, it is also possible to submit a paper for consideration for the pre-conference only, as long as this is indicated at the time of submission.
The pre-conference will last one full day and will feature only young scholars, apart from the invited address by Yongmiao Hong from Cornell University. We aim to have a seasoned scholar paired up with each individual paper in the pre-conference to enhance informal information exchange and constructive feedback.
