The 1st International Gender for Excellence in Research Conference will be held on 18-19 June 2022 in Istanbul, Turkey. It encourages Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to present their recent research, demonstrate how they have integrated a sex/gender dimension in this work, and reflect on the value of integrating this perspective into their research projects. The conference is being hosted by the Gender and Women’s Studies Research Center at Kadir Has University (GWSRC-KHAS) in Turkey and three internationally leading partners in this area: University of Lund (Sweden), University of Genoa (Italy) and Technological University Dublin (Ireland) under the European Union funded GenderEx project**.

This conference will create a platform for ESRs to share their research with a wider audience, network with other early career researchers and established scholars and receive feedback on their work. Non-academic stakeholders will be invited to discuss explicit societal examples and market needs where the gender+ dimension creates an impact. 


The conference is accepting papers and posters from all disciplines.  The papers presented must demonstrate the integration of a Sex and Gender Dimension in its content. Intersectional and gender+ approaches are particularly welcomed.

Submitted abstracts will be evaluated by a Scientific Committee composed of GenderEX project partners. The evaluation process consists of an anonymous peer review by committee members. Abstracts should have between 300-500 words and up to five keywords.

If an abstract is accepted, the author agrees to submit a full paper or poster, including results, tables, figures, and references, prior to the conference. All submissions should report original and previously unpublished research. Full text papers (.docx and .doc) will be accepted by Electronic Submission Form.

Following the conference, a book of abstracts will be published, and a selection of best papers will be eligible for publication in a book collection to be produced in 2023.

*Early stage researchers—Individuals in the early stages of their research career who have not received the PhD degree.

**Travel and accommodation will be provided to the participants whose papers are accepted from University of Lund (Sweden), University of Genoa (Italy) and Technological University Dublin (Ireland).
