Important Information – Attendance at New Researchers’ Colloquium
Please note that the venue for the New Researchers’ Colloquium has a limited capacity and only the primary authors will be able to attend and present papers.

The New Researchers’ Colloquium will be held on 30th June and 1st July at Chartered Institute for Housing (CIH), Princes Street, Edinburgh, and offers PhD students and early career delegates a supportive environment to present full papers, outline methods or work in progress and receive constructive feedback. Each delegate will be allocated their own mentor from a list of highly regarded experts in international housing research.

The call for abstracts/papers and registration are now open using the main conference website (submit within WS-25 for New Researchers’ Colloquium).

In addition there will be two special presentations:
- Reflections on being an early career researcher: looking at potential employment opportunities and pathways.
- Publication strategies: hear from journal editors and leading academics.

Fees: students can register for only £150 up to 30 April (£185 thereafter) and delegates registered for NRC can also attend the main ENHR 2014 conference at no extra charge. [Please note that there are no more student places available for the conference due to a high number of registrations. If you have had an abstract accepted to the New Researchers' Colloquium (WS-25) and wish to register please contact]

The New Researchers’ Colloquium is offering an exciting fieldtrip on Tuesday 1st July covering historic Leith and the north of Edinburgh waterfront area. The area is an historic and colourful part of the city with both earlier generations of public housing and more recent social housing developments. Keith Anderson, Chief Executive at the Port of Leith Housing Association has kindly agreed to give a guided tour which will offer an insight into recent private and mixed tenure developments, particularly emphasising high density ‘urban living’ and waterfront regeneration around Leith docks.
