You are writing a paper or doing a project that is linked to the topic of framing? Then you have the unique opportunity to share your work at our conference through either presenting a paper in a talk or a poster in a world-café setting.

Why present a paper? Presenters benefit from in-depth feedback our scientific committee will give on their paper prior to the conference. And there’s more: Every presenter has the chance to get her/his article published in our website!

Why present a poster? You're doing a practical project or your research has not been finaliced in the form of a paper yet? Presenting a poster at our converence is a perfect way to bring attention to your project and share your findings with students from all over the world.

We welcome advanced Bachelor students, Master students as well as PhD candidates from different academic backgrounds (politics, economics and philosophy, law and sociology).


All participants will have the rare opportunity to discuss with invited experts and likeminded fellow students all those questions which have been on their mind, and which no article or book seem to be able to answer. And at best, you will leave the conference with even more questions!

We welcome all students wanting to increase their awareness of the current theoretical and empirical questions in the field.

Peer reviewer

Don’t have a suitable paper at hand? No worries! You can still be part of our peer reviewer team and become an expert on the conference theme even before the conference kicks off. It’s the perfect way to get prepared! In mid-January, all peer reviewers will receive a preparatory email by the scientific committee with topical and organisational information on the peer review process. Peer reviewing takes place from mid-January to mid-February. As a standard, each participant in the process will be emailed one manuscript, except she/he would like to review more than one paper.
