Where


The workshop will take place in the Collegio Carlo Alberto building in Piazza Arbarello, 8 Turin, that formerly hosted the School of Economics of the University of Turin.

The Collegio Carlo Alberto is a foundation created in 2004 at the joint initiative of the Compagnia di San Paolo and the University of Torino. Its mission is to foster research and education in the social sciences, in accordance with the values and practices of the international academic community.

Accommodation


An accommodation facility will be provided for some of the participants. We will update this page as soon as further details are available.

Social dinner


We will be happy if you would like to join us on Wednesday 9 evening for the social dinner.

The menu will let you have a taste of a wide variety of Piedmontese traditional meals and a selection of local wine. A vegetarian menu will be provided. Other variations in the menu for personal needs can be provided. Food allergies and intollerances will be managed by the staff of the restaurant. We will ask you about these things in the registration form.

Turin city tour and wine tasting


For those who would like to stay in Turin also Thursday 10 night it will be possible to have a brief sight-seeing tour of the city (Piazza Castello and the Royal Palace, Piazza San Carlo and, maybe, the Mole Antonelliana).

We will also have a wine tasting (with some appetizers) around 6pm for whom would like to join. That activity is not part of the Workshop and so it is not covered by the fee.

FAQ


Only PhD Students can apply?

No, PhD Students are the main target of the Workshop, but also 1st-year Post-docs (only in long sessions) and last-year Master Students (only in short presentations) are welcome.

If I haven't a full paper yet, can I apply anyway?

Each participant have to present something, because the spirit of the event is to create a community that shares ideas and research questions. But the full paper will be asked only a couple of weeks before the Workshop. And if this isn't enought, we have a solution for you! Why don't apply for a short presentation? You'll have the opportuntity to breefly present a structured research idea and have useful comments and advises by a senior discussant. A good opportunity to get off to a good start :)

Is it possible to attend the Workshop only as an onlooker?

We are sorry, but you can't. Each participant have to present something. You can decide to apply either for a long, or for a short presentation. In these last, you'll have the opportuntity to breefly present a structured research idea and have useful comments and advises by a senior discussant. Moreover, we are open to discuss possible alternatives to paper presentations that can be of interest for the other participants. The spirit of the event is to create a community that shares ideas and research questions: so, dare to share!.

Which is the difference between long and short presentations?

In a long presentation you'll have 20 min to explain your paper, followd by 10 min of discussion. In a short one you'll have 10min to speak, and at the end of the session the 2-3 short presentations will be discussed together for 10 min. In both cases a senior researcher will lead the discussion, based on the reading of your draft paper.

Will you publish the final papers we have to send you?

No, the final papers will be shared only with the senior discussant that is in charge of your session, and it is useful only to her to give you a proper feedback.

What's included in the €50 fee?

The fee includes the access to the Collegio Carlo Alberto infrastructures, all the coffee breaks, lunches, and the social dinner. The fee does NOT include the accommodation facilities, the traveling and transportation costs, and any other social activity that is not the social dinner. But, some accommodation facilities will be provided (read above).

I've a question. Who can I ask to?

Feel free to write to phd_workshop@carloalberto.org
We'll answer you asap.
