The VOX-Pol Next Generation Network invites early career researchers to submit papers for, and participate in, a new one-day conference on June 17th, 2024, immediately preceding the annual TASM conference. Hosted at Swansea University by VOX-Pol’s new Next Gen Network, this event offers a unique platform for ECRs to showcase their work, exchange ideas, and connect with peers. ECRs who wish to attend the conference without presenting are welcome as well.

In addition to the conference, this event will introduce the new Next Gen Network and provide ECRs with an opportunity to meet fellow members. There will be additional networking events for those interested, including an excursion on June 16th to explore the surrounding sites and nature in Swansea, Wales.  If you wish to present a paper, gain insights from other early career researchers, or network with colleagues, we encourage you to apply.
