The 8th biennial RIPE conference will take place 22-24 September 2016 in Belgium! The conference will be hosted by the University of Antwerp (Department of Political and Social Sciences) in collaboration with the Free University of Brussels (Studies on Media, Information and Telecommunication).
The conference is sponsored by the Belgian public service media organisation, VRT, our host for Day 1. There will be a welcoming reception, as usual, the evening before.
This year we are organising a pre-conference on the 22nd for Early Career Researchers, called ECR@RIPE. All conference participants are invited to participate. The project is steered by Dr. Jonathon Hutchinson from the University of Sydney. For the inaugural ECR@RIPE pre-conference, we want to discuss ways to develop mentoring for young scholars, collaboration in applications for research funding, and explore the hopes and needs of junior and senior scholars alike. So please plan to join in. There won't be any additional cost to participate in the pre-conference. Detailed information will be provided later this year when the program is published.
More information about RIPE@2016 conference will be published in summer 2016. In the meantime, please check the latest news and join the discussion on RIPE's Facebook page.
