Call for papers: Experimental Methods in Political Science Conference

Here’s the call for papers:

Dear Colleagues

We are pleased to announce the Third Annual NYU-CESS (New York University Center for Experimental Social Sciences) Conference on Experimental Political Science on Friday, February 5th, 2010 and Saturday, February 6th, 2010. Last year’s conference was a huge success with over 100 attendees and 10 papers presented. The Conference is now an annual event that we hope will bring together researchers interested in experimental methodology in political science broadly. That is, we welcome the participation of scholars who work in the field and those who work in the lab as well as the participation of political psychologists and political economists. Furthermore, we welcome the participation of scholars who are not experimentalists themselves but are interested in learning and discussing experimental methods as well as those interested in the relationship between experimental methods and analyzing observational data in political science.

We invite submissions of papers for possible presentation at the third annual conference. Because we would like to be as inclusive as possible and continue to have a wide range of papers on experimental political science, we will not be able to subsidize paper presenters’ expenses in full, but will offer each paper presenter a partial stipend to help defray expenses of attending the conference. If you would like to submit a paper, please send the paper or a detailed abstract to Rebecca Morton, by October 1st, 2009. We will notify authors by October 15th, 2009.

Please save the date as we hope to see many of you at nyu on Friday, Feburary 5th and Saturday, February 6th!
