Invitation to take part in ”Young Russia Experts”:
Second International Student Conference, 22-23 November 2018
Time: 22-23 November
Place: ToRS, University of Copenhagen, Karen Blixen plads 10, Copenhagen
We are glad to invite you to the Third International Student Conference, which will take place on 22-23 November at the Department of Cross-Cultural and Area Studies, University of Copenhagen. The conference will bring together future Russia experts and professors from four universities: University of Copenhagen, Århus University, Lund University and the University of Malmö. This event is the continuation of the First Student Conference in Århus in November 2017, which was the result of successful collaboration between the universities of Copenhagen and Århus. In this year, on top of the collaboration between these two Danish universities, we are inviting Russia students from the Swedish side as well.
The purpose of this event is to introduce you to each other, to enhance your future professional networking, and to give you the possibility to receive feedback for your ongoing research/study projects from both your peers and your teachers. This is, however, a conference of students and for students, and we will only arrange and structure the event.
Presentations can be made in two forms. First, it can be an oral paper of 10-15 minutes with or without a PowerPoint, followed by 5-10 minutes of questions and answers. Second, it can be a ‘poster presentation’, that is an A3 format poster, on which you lay out and visualize your research problem and main results. Poster presentations will also be discussed in groups. The conference will have four ‘official’ languages: English, Danish, Swedish and Russian, while the ‘by default’ language is English, so, for example, if you chose to present your paper in Danish, please prepare your PowerPoint slides in English.
If we have too many applications, we may not be able to accommodate everyone, so we kindly ask for your understanding.
The deadline for submitting your applications is 1 November.
