Other shortlisted papers

As you know, the original plan was to host our 13th SRN Annual Conference in Oxford in 2020. More than 140 proposals were received following our initial Call; 118 papers (for a total of 132 speakers from 35 countries) were shortlisted.

Eventually, after switching to the online format and turning the conference into a Research Seminar Series (hopefully just for this once), several presenters had to retire for one reason or another and therefore won’t be presenting at SRN2021. Nonetheless, we still want to at least acknowledge their contribution. You can find names and titles of all the other shortlisted papers here below.
