The Migration Conference 2018 will be hosted by ISEG and IGOT at the University of Lisbon, Portugal, from 26 to 28 June 2018.
Submission Deadline: 31 January 2018
On behalf of the The Migration Conference Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to the 6th conference in the series which will take place in Lisbon, Portugal from 26 to 28 June 2018. The Conference will be a forum for discussion where experts, young researchers and students, practitioners and policy makers working in the field of migration are encouraged to exchange their knowledge and experiences in a friendly and frank environment.
The conference is organised in thematic streams of parallel sessions focusing migration, migrant populations, diasporas, migration policies, as well as non-migrants and wider impact of human mobility. The scientific programme will comprise invited talks, oral presentations, poster presentations as well as workshops.
The conference will host about 100 parallel sessions and several keynote speakers. The speakers for plenaries will be announced in due course, but surely distinguished scholars of the field will appear as was the case in previous conferences, where Douglas Massey, Saskia Sassen, Oded Stark, Giuseppe Sciortino, Caroline Brettell, Barry Chiswick, and Karen Phalet appeared.
Conference venue is ISEG (School of Economics and Management) at University of Lisbon in Portugal's capital. The central location is just paces away from beautiful Tagus river and many museums and attractions within short distance. Directions to the campus can be found here.
We are expecting an interesting and highly motivating meeting and would be happy if you participated in this conference.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Lisbon in June 2018 !

About The Migration Conferences
The Migration Conferences were launched at Regent's Center for Transnational Studies in 2012 when the first large scale well attended international peer-reviewed conference with a focus on Turkish migration in Europe in Regent's Park campus of Regent's University London. The five previous conferences from 2012 to 2017 have been attended by between 200 to 400 participants coming from all around the world in London (2012), London (2014), Prague (2015), Vienna (2016), and Athens (2017).
The Migration Conference is an international peer-reviewed scientific event. Papers presented at the TMC are reviewed by the Conference Committee/Track chairs/Chairs and double blind peer-reviewed by at least two referees for their scientific quality, style and presentation. Reviewers are assigned by the track chairs and chairs. To ensure unbiased evaluation, authors are required to remove personal and institutional information from their submitted abstracts/papers and reviewer names are not disclosed to the authors submitting papers/abstracts. Authors are required to follow guidelines and address the reviewer comments in preparing their final manuscripts and presentations.
