11th ECPR General Conference: Building Better Elections

University of Oslo
Oslo, Norway
6 September, 2017 - 9 September, 2017

The 2017 General Conference will be held at the University of Oslo, which was founded in 1811 and was the first University in Norway.

The General Conference is the platform for lively discussion, exchange of ideas and the best thinking in the discipline, and is Europe's biggest gathering of political scientists. Attracting scholars throughout the world, and at all stages of their career, the conference covers the full range of political science. The Academic Programme will consist of lectures, Roundtables and themed Sections and Panels on topical subjects. Each Panel will include 4 – 5 Papers. The Programme will be very broad with Sections covering all the main areas of political science, political theory and international relations.

The key to a successful conference is teaming challenging academic content with a stimulating plenary timetable, which also includes social functions that facilitate effective networking. The General Conference does just this through roundtables, a plenary lecture and an interesting social programme. Oslo, with its world-class museums and galleries, fjords, forests, hills and lakes, also promises to be an exciting backdrop to the Conference.

The deadline for Panel and Paper proposals is midnight UK time on 15 February 2017.
