The 11th PhD Existence will take place on 1rd and 2th February 2021. We will be looking forward to seeing you back in Olomouc!

Proceedings from 2019 PhD Existence have been published. They are available for download here. We will inform you about their WoS indexing.

Dear colleagues,

this academic year, we invite you to the 11th year of the conference PhD existence: the Czech-Slovak conference (not only) for and about doctoral students, with the subtitle „Moving on…„. The conference will take place on February 1st-2nd, 2021, regardless of the current situation in connection with covid-19: We will either meet in person at the Konvikt art center in Olomouc or online on one of the teleconferencing platforms. The program and detailed information will be published in time on the conference website.

What can you look forward to? Current, ongoing, and long-term research in the field of education, clinical psychology, risk behavior, psychodiagnostics, and psychological testing, up to cross-cutting topics across the social sciences will be presented. We believe that even though some research activities may have slowed down or paused for a while, you have managed to gradually start them up again, or even start some new ones. So share it with us!

We are happy to invite you to take an active part, in the form of an oral presentation, workshop, or poster. General instructions for contributions can be found on the PhD Existence website under the Registration tab. In the case of holding an online conference, the conditions for the presentation of the poster, etc. will be specified. This year, too, we aim to index the conference proceedings in the Web of Science database, and also offer the opportunity to publish your papers in the peer-reviewed journal „Diskuze v psychologii“ (https://diskuzevpsychologii.upol.cz/).

If you want to participate in the PhD existence at least as a visitor, we offer the possibility of passive participation, which in the case of a „face to face“ conference will include entry to the social evening. At the same time, you can participate in our comic strip competition on the topic of PhD existence – we will implement it online in case of emergency, so you will not miss the fun J

We look forward to seeing you!
