Eligibility and Support

Accommodation and Meals:

Accommodation and meals will be provided to all accepted participants.


We aim to offer the accepted participants based at European universities (including Russia) a transport grant of around 130 Euros. Please note that this is not a confirmed amount and may vary. Unfortunately, due to a restricted budget, we are not able to offer grants to participants who are based at non-European universities. Participants are encouraged to seek financial support from their own institutions.

*PLEASE NOTE: Participants who wish to receive a grant will have to send their ticket and/or receipt by April 10th.

Presentations and Papers

All successful applicants will be expected to give a 30 minute presentation (20 minutes presentation + 10 minutes Q&A) and will have to submit their full paper (5-7 pages) by April 10th.

Submission of Application and Abstracts

Applicants should submit the following information by e-mail to ksgsc2020@gmail.com:

1) your full name as you would like it to appear in the abstract booklet

2) contact info (e-mail and telephone)

3) major area of study (region and discipline)

4) title of your paper

5) one-page (500 words max.) abstract in print-ready format, including your name and institution

The file with the paper & the information should be named as follows: LastnameNameKSGSC20.doc (e.g. JohnsonPeterKSGSC20.doc)

At the KSGSC’s AGM in 2015, it was decided that the KSGSC would accept applications and presentations in both English and Korean from 2016 onwards. We ask all applicants who wish to submit an abstract in Korean for a presentation in Korean to also submit a translation of their abstract in English as well as the Korean original. We do not expect Korean language paper submissions to also offer an English translation of their entire paper, though we at the KSGSC would certainly welcome them.

You will be sent a confirmation email that your application has been received. If you do not receive a confirmation within 5 days after you sent it, please send your application over again.

Application Period

The deadline for applications is February 15th, 2020.

We will contact all applicants in late February regarding the acceptance of their application.


We would like to receive applications only from those who are definitely able to attend the convention. Please, bear in mind that applicants who confirm and then later cancel their participation potentially deprive others of the chance of attending and lead to waste of KSGSC resources.

Please note that any participants who cancel after March 15th may be liable to pay the hotel expenses and may be restricted from attending future KSGSC conferences.
