CESS is pleased to announce that a number of pre-conference workshops will be offered for the first time at the 2018 CESS Annual Conference. Intended to provide additional opportunities for scholarly engagement and training, these half-day and full-day workshops will be held from 1-5pm Wednesday, October 24 and 9am-1pm Thursday, October 25.
There is no charge to participate in the workshops as they are generously supported by a grant from Open Society Foundations and financial support from the journal Central Asian Survey. Each half-day workshop includes one meal and one coffee break. All workshops will be held at the University of Pittsburgh, the conference site.
Descriptions of the workshops, the number of maximum participants for each workshop, the date/time, the eligibility criteria, and additional application materials required can be found at the pre-conference workshops page. Please carefully read the descriptions and requirements for each workshop before applying.
The closing date to apply and to submit any additional required materials is August 3, 2018.
