HILDA SURVEY RESEARCH CONFERENCE 2013 PRIZE

For the first time, the paper presented at the conference that is judged as being the best will be awarded a prize.

A prize will also be awarded to the best poster.

Travel subsidies

Contributions towards the travel and accommodation costs of paper presenters (but not poster presenters) will be available. As in past years we will cover the cost of an economy airfare and two night’s accommodation for all Australian-based presenters (but limited to one person per paper). Conference registration fees will also be waived. Part subsidies will also be available for a limited number of overseas-based speakers.

Selection guidelines

Paper numbers are deliberately restricted to maximise room for discussion. Paper selection is thus competitive. Priority will be given to papers that exploit the longitudinal nature of the data. Papers on panel survey methods and that provide cross-national comparisons are also very welcome.

Presenters of papers that are not selected will be offered the opportunity to make a poster presentation.

Submissions will only normally be accepted from registered users of the HILDA Survey data. If you have an idea that you think would be of interest to participants but does not use the HILDA Survey unit record data you should first contact the head of the organising committee, Professor Mark Wooden, to discuss.

Submission deadline: All papers and abstracts need to be received by: 31 MAY 2013.

Submissions are now closed.

For queries about the submission process, please contact Penny Hope at p.hope@unimelb.edu.au or +61 3 8344 2151.

All papers presented will also be assigned to a discussant.

 

Submission guidelines

Extended Abstracts: Should be between one and two pages in length and should make clear what the purposes of the proposed paper are, how the HILDA data will be used and which data waves will be drawn on.
Since papers need to be circulated to a discussant prior to the conference, authors of selected abstracts will need to submit a complete paper by 2 September 2013.

Full papers: Papers need to be complete and should be in a format similar to that expected for submission to an academic journal.

Brief Abstracts (for poster session): Should be around 200 words and should make clear what the research question is and how the HILDA data will be used.

Presenter details: When making your submission, please nominate the person who will be the main presenter (in the case of multi-authored papers) and include a very short biography briefly summarising your current position, affiliations, and research experience. (This will be the person to whom the travel subsidy will be paid).

Please ensure that your full contact details are included so we can keep you updated regarding your submission.
