This powerful tool allows you to browse the full academic and plenary programme by day, as well as searching for Panels and activities

Conference App

Do take a moment to download our free General Conference App for iOS and Android. Search for ECPR General Conference 2016 in the App Store or Google Play. We regret that the App is not yet compatible with Windows phones

Our App offers a fully searchable and browsable academic timetable which lets you seek out Panels and Papers most relevant to your research. You then add them to an Agenda to create a bespoke conference timetable. 

To activate the App's additional features, enter the email address with which you registered for the event. This will give you access to Notifications for real-time conference updates, and a Chat function to help you connect with old colleagues and make new contacts.

Please be aware that uploading your Paper to MyECPR gives us the right to publish it on this website and in the conference App

The Panel and Paper information in this pdf represents the information in ECPR's database on 28 July 2016. Any updates made since that date will not appear in this document.

A programme update sheet, featuring all changes made since 28 July, will be available online from Monday 5 September. A printed version of this update sheet will be given to you in Prague when you register.

Printed Conference Programme

Based on feedback from last year's General Conference in Montreal, the print programme is now arranged by Session time as well as by Section, allowing easier browsing and day-to-day planning.

We have also added a keyword index, providing a clearer guide to the focus of each Section and another way for you to identify the most relevant panels to attend.
