2015 Asian Political Methodology Conference in Taipei

Call for Proposals for the 2nd Asian Political Methodology Conference, Jan. 9 - 10, 2015, in Taipei

The second Asian Political Methodology Conference will be held January 9 and 10, 2015 at Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan.  This conference is organized by the Institute of Political Science, Academia Sinica, and cosponsored by the Institute of Political Methodology and Princeton University (Program for the Quantitative and Analytical Political Science).  Like the inaugural meeting we had in Tokyo last year, we aim to have a small, intensive two-day conference focusing on quantitative methods and their applications. Although the conference seeks to promote the advancement of quantitative social science research in Asia, we hope to have all regions of the world represented at the conference.  Two invited speakers from the U.S. (Simon Jackman of Stanford University and Kevin Quinn of University of California, Berkeley) and one from Taiwan (Chi Huang of National Chengchi University) have agreed to participate in the conference.  The information about the conference including the last year’s meeting is available at http://asiapolmeth.princeton.edu.

Calls for Papers and Posters 

We invite proposals for papers and posters for this conference.  We seek proposals that develop or apply innovative quantitative methods to answer important questions in political science.  The meeting is open to a broad range of methodological research without any specific theme.  Those who are interested in presenting either a paper or a poster should apply online using the 2015 Application Form The title and abstract (up to 500 words) of your presentation will be required.  The application deadline is September 15, 2014.  Applicants will be notified of the decisions before October 15, 2014, with final drafts of conference papers due by Dec 18, 2014.
