The Young Scientists Sessions are organized each year at the ERSA Congress, and provide a special platform for paper presentations by young scientists with an in-depth discussion of the papers by senior scholars in the field. The Young Scientists Sessions are organized according to the following two principles:

  • Offering more time for each presentation, in particular to increase the amount of feedback a young scientist receives on her or his paper, and to provide more opportunity for other young scientists to participate in scientific discussions.
  • Assigning specialist discussants, experts in the specific field, to each paper that is presented
