Annual Doctoral Conferences

The Annual Doctoral Conference (ADC) is a graduate students' conference at CEU that has been organized every year since 2006.

The two to three days long conferences consist of several panel sessions, where students can present and discuss their research papers. Discussants in the panel sessions include renowned CEU professors and invited guest speakers. Panel sessions are usually followed by roundtable discussions. The ADC takes place in CEU's main campus, in the heart of Budapest.

For students in the earlier stages of their career the conference provides an opportunity to train for a first contribution to a scientific conference. For students in later stages, the paper proposed for the conference can be seen as a ‘job market’ paper, i.e. a paper a student would select to present if she or he is invited to a job talk.
