NOSTER Spring Conference 2020

1 - 2 EC 23 Apr 2020

23-24 April 2020, Driebergen-Rijsenburg

The NOSTER Spring Conference is one of the highlights of the NOSTER academic year. For two days all ReMA students and PhD candidates that are active within NOSTER, are invited to meet up, present their research, discuss current matters in the field and to follow the workshops. We would like to invite junior members to consider giving a research presentation at the NOSTER Spring Conference on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 April 2020 in conference venue Landgoed de Horst in Driebergen-Rijsenburg.

Research presentations are given in parallel sessions and there will be time for discussion. We distinguish between four categories of presentations:

  • Presentations of ReMA research: present the design of or an element from your master thesis research or a course paper (20 min. presentation).
  • Presentations of recently started PhD research: a presentation (20 minutes) on the design of your project.
  • Presentations of intermediate PhD research: a presentation (20 minutes) on a specific methodological or theoretical issue of your project.
  • Presentations of advanced PhD research: a presentation (20 minutes) of an article or chapter from your thesis (max. 20 pages) that is distributed in advance to the conference participants; a senior scholar will provide a response.

If you would like to present during the Spring Conference, please send an e-mail with the title, abstract (max. 300 words) and category (ReMA/recently started/intermediate/advanced) of your presentation before 11 February 2019 to

If you would like to give a presentation of advanced research, please also provide names of at least two senior scholars from the Netherlands from whom you would like to receive a response. These scholars should not be already involved in your project. NOSTER will contact them.

The various participation options are rewarded with the following amount of credits:
Preparations + Attendance: 1,0 EC
Preparations + Attendance + ReMA/recently started/intermediate presentation: 1,5EC
