The conference will provide a platform for the leading experts on alliances in conflict both in Economics and in Political Science to meet and to exchange ideas and research results about the phenomenon of alliances in contests or in conflict more generally. During the conference, young researchers – such as PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and Assistant Professors – are given a chance to bring forward and discuss their work with leading scholars in a “poster session”. The Organizing Committee is therefore pleased to invite young researchers, who work in the field of alliances, contests and conflict and who are at most 3 years past obtaining a PhD, to submit an extended abstract (at most 500 words) to [email protected]. We invite theoretical work, empirical work or experimental work on the functioning of alliances in conflict and on the reasons and consequences of the formation of alliances. Submission should include a recent CV and be received at the latest by May 31, 2011.
