Early Career Researcher Reception (ECRR)

Wednesday, September 25

Constanzer Wirtshaus


Conferences are ideal for networking, at least what many colleagues strive for. Digitalsocieties2019 stimulates real F2F contacts among conference participants. All attendees are invited to join for a buffet meal at Constanzer Wirtshaus downtown, and early career researchers get one drink for free. This is why the general welcome becomes a ECRR! Elephant Talk, a local jazz combo, will provide the entertainment.

Presentation Open Science Initiative

Thursday, September 26
18:15 - 19:15

The Academy of Sociology aims to foster Open Science practices in the social sciences. In this discussion we will take stock on the challenges that are still ahead: particularly fostering FAIR data, research transparency, and replications. We will analyze why and to what extent current incentive structures in academia block the principles of transparent and reproducible research, and we will discuss institutional changes that may be necessary to promote Open Science practices. The goal is to identify and stimulate activities that advance the credibility of social science research. Organization: AS board members Katrin Auspurg and Josel Brüderl (LMU Munich)
