Social Communication Research Group at the Faculty of Education and Psychology, Eötvös Loránd University is proud to announce the call for submissions to our conference.

‘University Rankings – Reflections from Social Sciences and Humanities’.

The conference will be held between 19-21 May 2021, fully virtually, online only.

The Conference Committee is looking for proposals concerning the following topics:

  • Rankings and the Decision Makers
  • Meeting of Three Cultures: Universities, Rankings and the Social-Economic Environment
  • Are There Theories of Rankings?
  • Theoretical Approaches about Excellence
  • Rankings as Social and Media Phenomena

The Conference Committee will be accepting submissions online for lectures and posters in two presentation formats: live and pre-recorded presentations. Live presentations will comprise 15 minutes of presentation plus 5 minutes for live questions and changeover. Each poster presenter will be asked to record a 2-3 minute intro (video or voice recording) to be included with their poster. They will also be given a 30 minute block of time in a “breakout” room so attendees can reach out to chat, ask questions, etc.

Unless otherwise advised by participants, all the sessions will be fully recorded and made available for watching online, only to those who have registered, during the conference and the month after. Submit your proposal using this form no later than 30 April 2021. Received proposals will be reviewed and selected by 05 May 2021.
