Late Autumn School 2019

Fragile Trust? Perspectives and Challenges in a Digitized World

The interdisciplinary DFG Research Training Group “Trust and Communication in a Digitized World” is organizing an international and interdisciplinary Late Autumn School in Münster, 21st to 23rd November 2019

The topic of trust is relevant to different scientific fields, such as communication science, psychology, economics, information systems, sports sciences as well as further related fields. Therefore, we invite applications from PhD and Master Students as well as early Post-docs from all research disciplines dealing with the topic of trust and digitalization. Contributions may address the role of trust, distrust, and risk on a theoretical, conceptual or empirical level. Submissions that deal with the relationship between trust and related constructs such as transparency, credibility, etc. are also explicitly welcome.

Due to space limitations, all applications, which must include an abstract of the research project (mainly problem-oriented or a specific excerpt of the dissertation; 300 words) and a short scientific CV, will undergo a peer review process. Submissions should relate to the research topic of either the Research Training Group or the Late Autumn School. Please also state the status of your dissertation/master project and what questions you are currently dealing with. Furthermore, we ask interested master students to include a short recommendation letter by their supervisor. Applicants should clearly state which presentation format they are applying to (e.g. in-depth feedback session, poster session, or PhD presentations etc.). Applications for multiple formats are possible.

Deadline for Applications: 1st September 2019

Applications should be written in English language and submitted in one PDF document. To apply or in case of further questions, please contact Applications will be evaluated in a peer review process and response will be given until end of September 2019. The submitted abstracts will be published in a book of abstracts.
