LIfBi invites to the 7th International NEPS Conference


This year's 7th International NEPS Conference will take place on 05 and 06 December 2022 as a thematically open event. As of 01 July, interested parties can register free of charge for conference participation via the website. Abstracts for conference contributions can be submitted as of now until 15 September.


For the seventh time, the scientific community is invited to the international NEPS conference. Hosted by the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) the conference brings together researchers from different disciplines and at different stages of their academic careers to discuss current educational research projects. Empirical contributions on all focal areas of National Educational Panel Study (NEPS), including methodological topics, are welcome. However, the analyses presented do not necessarily have to be based on NEPS data.

This year's programme includes a keynote lecture by Prof. Regina Riphahn, Ph.D., a poster session, as well as the well-known presentation of the "NEPS Publication Award". It is endowed with 1,000 EUR, for the best publication based on NEPS data of the past year. Contributions can be nominated for the Publication Award as of now until 31 July 2022. An interdisciplinary jury decides on the award of the publication prize.

Due to the uncertain situation regarding the Corona pandemic, the decision to hold the conference in presence at LIfBi in Bamberg, virtually via Zoom or in a hybrid format cannot be made until late summer. The conference will be held in English, participation is free of charge.
