FAQ

Can I expect to be financially supported to attend the conference?

Unfortunately, CEURUS has no funding available to cover participants' travel and participation costs.

The only exception to this pertains to Ukrainian scholars at the 2023 Conference:

  • for scholars affiliated with Ukrainian institutions, participation fee will be waived;
  • the organisers are currently working to secure funding that would enable providing travel grants for Ukrainian scholars. Details will be made available to accepted participants in February 2023.

Can I receive an invitation letter/ a letter of confirmation about my participation at the conference?

If your paper has been accepted, you can download a personalised letter of invitation in the ConfTool system. After logging in, click on "Invitation and Confirmation for Presenting Authors" and you will be prompted with a download of a .pdf file with all the necessary information. Depending on your browser settings, you may need to allow pop-ups or instant downloads.

Will the conference allow online participation?

We are planning a fully in-person conference. Limited opportunities for online participation will be available only for participants from Ukrainian institutions.

What is the epidemiological situation in Estonia?

The current level of Covid-19 risk in Estonia can be found here. The current restrictions for entering Estonia are available on the official website of the Government of Estonia. The organisers will take all precautionary measures required by authorities to hold a Covid-19 safe event.

How do I get to Tartu?

Please refer to the Travel section of our website for detailed instructions and additional travel suggestions.

Can I receive help with the visa process?

After your paper is accepted, please provide the required information via e-mail to the organisers at info@tartuconference.ut.ee (more information on this will be made available at the start of registration).

Can I submit more than one proposal?

A conference participant may appear on the programme in no more than two sessions (panels or roundtables) and may present only one paper during the conference. (However, a participant may appear as a co-author of another paper presented by another participant.)

I did not submit any paper proposal, or my proposal has been rejected. Can I still attend the conference?

Guest registration opens at the same time as participant registration (20 February) and continues until 31 May. You are also welcome to volunteer as a panel chair or a discussant by sending an e-mail to the conference address.

What are the requirements for my paper?

We do not plan to publish your papers or otherwise make them public. Thus we do not set any specific requirements regarding the size or format of the papers, but usual common-sense academic rules do apply.

The basic assumption is that scholars go to conferences to present their research and get feedback from their colleagues. If your paper is part of an organised panel, ask your panel organiser about any specific instructions they might have. Alternatively, think about how to frame your paper in a way that presents your argument in a fully developed yet concise form. In terms of length, it probably means at least 3000 words, preferably close to 5000, but no more than 10000, since long papers are undue burden for the discussant.
