Dear members of the SIEF migration and mobility group and dear interested colleagues. We are now planning the SIEF Migration Group Meeting from Sept 11-13 2016 in Basel, Switzerland. Please save the date!
Registration is now open and you can register here.

After our lively founding meeting in Zagreb last summer, we are very much looking forward to the first working group meeting. We suggest a workshop format that allows for creative space to discuss, learn from each other and mingle, make new friends and find ways of cooperating. Also, as it is the first meeting, we will not narrow the topics down too much, but rather focus on discussions of theory and methods, which will hopefully inspire all of us.

The fees will be 150 CHF for non-SIEF members and 120 CHF for SIEF members. This includes 2 lunches, 2 dinners and all coffee breaks, as well as social events.

We have already made reservations at a youth hostel and a hotel, depending on your budget. If you cannot receive funding from your home university, you can apply for funding with us. We have the possibility to cover workshop and travel costs for a limited number of participants.

Looking forward to seeing you in beautiful Basel this autumn!
