We are planning a series of special sessions at the World Congress to highlight the work of younger scholars (under 40 years of age). A maximum of forty presentations will be accommodated. There is no limitation on topics but the presentation should highlight innovative methodology, or new applications, creative use of data and important policy relevance. Sessions will be chaired by senior RSAI colleagues who will also serve as session discussants. The final session, to which all participants are invited, will focus on general comments and feedback and suggestions for preparation for publication.
