The International Summer School invites PhD students across disciplines whose work and research deals with questions relating to trust in mediated communication. A total of 50 PhD students will be able to participate. To give participants the opportunity to present their work to leading experts in the field and to discuss their work with PhD students who work in the same or related fields, those who are interested in participating in the summer school are encouraged to submit an extended abstract of max. 800 words (excluding tables, figures, and references). Accepted submissions will be presented as a poster plus a short presentation in one of the thematic interactive poster/high density sessions.
To include participants who are still in the early stages of their PhD program, we also encourage the submission of early/first results, work-in-progress, and brief exposés presenting the PhD project. Both empirical and theoretical work is welcome. Submissions should fit into one or more of the topics covered in the summer school. Exemplary subtopics relevant to the four thematic areas include, but are not limited to:
