CaliWEPS II will take place on Friday September 20th, 2019, at the University of California, Merced.

We are now accepting submissions for CaliWEPS II. We welcome submissions from graduate students, postdocs, and untenured tenure-track or non-tenure-track faculty. Submissions should be either full papers or research design documents. Please submit your paper or research design at this link by July 15th 2019. We cannot consider late submissions. Please note that research designs should be more than ‘bare bones’: We suggest they include as many elements of a completed paper (introduction, theory, hypotheses, data description, empirical strategy), with as much detail, as possible. The more complete and detailed the research design, the higher the likelihood of success.

CaliWEPS funds travel and workshop expenses for presenting California-based graduate students. Faculty and non-presenting graduate students are also welcome to attend at their own expense.

This format works best with a committed group of graduate students who both give and receive comments, so graduate students who participate without presenting will be more likely to be selected as presenters in future rounds.

Check out the fantastic lineup from last year at UC-San Diego.
