+++ Abstract submission for the 5th International NEPS Conference is now open +++
The National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) provides a unique research data infrastructure with longitudinal and context information for respondents of six ongoing panel cohorts. The rich database particularly facilitates empirical analyses of competence development, educational processes, educational decisions, and returns to education in formal, nonformal, and informal contexts. For more information, please see www.neps-data.de
The NEPS Conferences bring together scientists from different disciplines and at different stages of their academic career to discuss ongoing projects and current findings in educational research. This year the event is taking place for the fifth time at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) in Bamberg. Empirical contributions on all NEPS-related topics are welcome, including methodological issues and international comparisons. The analyses to be presented do not necessarily have to be based on the NEPS data. Conference language is English.
We are pleased that Michelle Jackson (Assistant Professor of Sociology at Stanford University, U.S.) has agreed to give a keynote lecture at the conference on the benefits of the fundamental causes approach for research on educational inequality. Besides the paper and poster presentations, the agenda will again include an award ceremony for the best NEPS publication and the best poster, a small reception to get to know each other and for casual conversations, and a round table discussion with the Research Data Center team.
