DSC2014 Logo

Building on the success of the nine previous Doctoral Conferences which totally attracted over 900 papers from countries all over the SE European region and beyond (UK, Australia, South Africa, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Sweden, Belgium and USA), we are pleased to announce the organisation of the 10th South East European Doctoral Student Conference. The aim of the conference is to further facilitate the exchange of knowledge between young researchers and to consolidate the established network of scholars currently undertaking research in South East Europe.

Having identified academic isolation as a problem that many doctoral students face today, DSC2015 aims to bring researchers together with the purpose of establishing collaborative links between disciplines, for testing the ground with innovative ideas and for engaging the wider academic community. The Conference is open to young researchers currently undertaking doctoral study, or in the early years of their research career (up to 2 years following the award of their PhD degree). It has an inter-disciplinary focus. More information on the topic areas covered by the conference can be found in the following page

All papers presented at the Conference will be evaluated by an expert panel of academics. Each presentation will be followed by questions from the audience and comments/feedback from the panel members. The accepted submissions will be included in the Proceedings and indexed in EBSCO DATABASE. In addition, there will be a general discussion session guided by the panel discussants and participants, addressing various issues on PhD work and the experience of carrying out research. There will also be a number of workshops and training sessions focusing on useful skills development for doctoral students.
