For the 2020 World Congress of the International Council for Central and East European Studies, the ICCEES Executive Committee proposes to make an award of €500 for the best paper presented by a young scholar. Scholars presenting papers at the Congress who are carrying out research for a PhD, or who have been awarded a PhD in the past two years, may indicate that they are eligible and would like to be considered for this award by ticking a box, which will be made available on the website for registration for the Congress. Candidates for the award must then submit their papers for the Congress to the following email address no later than 1st July 2020: firstname.lastname@example.org
A panel appointed by the Executive Committee of ICCEES, and chaired by Professor Graeme Gill, will review the papers and reach a consensus about the award. Awards will be judged on the basis of originality, depth of scholarship, clarity of presentation, and contribution to the field of Central and East European Studies. The winner of the award will be announced at the closing ceremony of the Congress in Montreal.
