The organisers have previously held preconferences at ECREA 2021 and ICA2022. We make an effort to create a friendly atmosphere and facilitate networking. Young scholars are especially welcome. Preconferences are a great way to meet people before the main event. You can also attend the preconference even if you do not go to the main event.
