We invite you to the 10th Linguistic Conference for Doctoral Students („Sprachwissenschaftliche Tagung für Promotionsstudierende“, STaPs), which will be held on March 31st and April 1st, 2017 at the University of Bern.
The conference provides doctoral students the opportunity to present specific aspects or current challenges within their projects in problem-oriented talks that leave a substantial amount of room for discussion. This allows students to discuss difficulties and develop strategies to solve these problems in an informal and interdisciplinary environment. In addition, the program will include interactive and interdisciplinary workshops on methodological and general questions regarding doctoral projects in the areas of language, discourse, and culture.
The 10th StaPs offers doctoral students the possibility to share their experiences with other young researchers from a wide range of disciplines and receive feedback on their work from peers. In contrast to other academic conferences, participants do not need to present finished products. Instead, students can share and discuss work in progress and challenges in their doctoral project in a pressure-free environment.
