Still open until September 15, 2017!

We invite proposals for contributions in English, German or Japanese to a poster session that will take place during the second and third day of the VSJF conference (November 1–2, 2017).

We encourage both junior researchers and established scholars from all fields of social science research on Japan for presenting late-breaking results, on-going research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. Presenters of a poster will be expected to be present at the conference.

We provide space for a limited number of posters that will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis provided that the submitted proposals meet the above-mentioned criteria. Proposals of no longer than one page should include the poster title, author names, affiliations plus email addresses, and a short abstract of the project. The deadline for proposals is September 15, 2017. After the deadline applications will no longer be accepted.

The standard poster size is 841mm wide x 1189mm high (DIN A0). Printouts will have to be made by the author(s) and be brought to the conference site one day earlier (October 31, 2017). Vienna commands over some printshops with AO plotters; though we strongly recommend to prepare posters at home.
