Call for Papers and Panels: 7th Biennial Conference on Migration Research in Austria

Deadline: 28 January, 2022

This conference is organised by the Commission for Migration and Integration Research, ÖAW, and the Institute for Urban and Regional Research, ÖAW, in collaboration with the Department for Migration and Globalization at Danube University Krems, and the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Vienna.

In its keynote addresses and plenary sessions, the 7th Austrian Biennial Conference on Migration Research will shed light on the challenges and opportunities of the multidisciplinary perspectives on migration and globalisation. The conference will further address whether and how understandings of migration and mobility, integration and settled life, as well as diversity and participation must be modified in the context of globalized societies.

The organizers call for proposals for panels and papers. We are particularly interested in panels displaying a multi-disciplinary orientation and/or bringing together different perspectives on migration and/or rethinking societies from a migration perspective in line with the conference topic. However, there are no thematic restrictions. The call is open to all panels and papers dealing with any further themes related to migration, mobility, and integration. Selected peer-reviewed contributions will be published in an open access yearbook with the Austrian Academy of Sciences Press. Again, contributions focusing on the overall theme of the conference will receive special consideration. Proposals for panels and papers can be submitted either in English or in German.

Panels 

Proposals for panels of 90 minutes (each including three to four short papers) should contain a provisional title and a description of the panel topic (800 words), highlighting the innovative potential of the panel in the context of existing research. The proposals should also include the names of the authors, titles and abstracts (250 words each) of the papers. The abstracts should include the specific research question, the theoretical and methodological approach and, where applicable, the data used. Panel suggestions should furthermore include one discussant who will critically comment on the papers to initiate the audience discussion. This person should not be a co-author or member of the research team proposing the panel and papers. The presenters must be affiliated with different institutions for the panel to be accepted. Interdisciplinary and internationally comparative panels will be given priority.

Papers 

Proposals for papers may also be submitted independently of panel proposals. Paper submissions should contain a provisional title and a short summary (500 words) explaining the research question, the theoretical and methodological approach and, where applicable, the data used. We especially welcome interdisciplinary and internationally comparative papers. Please send all proposals to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 28 January 2022. The selection of panels and papers will be completed by 8 April 2022.
