Advanced Applications Workshop

The International QCA Advanced Applications Workshop 2019 (May 22, 2019, Antwerp Management School) offers a platform for advanced QCA researchers in the political sciences, sociology, management, and economics and provides a forum for cross-disciplinary exchange. The workshop encourages the dissemination of new ideas, facilitates the promotion of innovative work, and creates opportunities for scientific collaboration.

With this Call for Abstracts we invite submissions from researchers who work on methodological developments of QCA, apply QCA empirically or do both. We especially encourage submissions that develop or apply methodological combinations with and around QCA. The call is also open for submissions that do not explicitly focus on multi-method applications of QCA but instead contain innovative applications and/or methodological developments of QCA. Although we expect submissions to come primarily from the areas of political science, sociology, management, and economics, we encourage submissions with other methodological, theoretical, or empirical orientations.

Abstract submission
We invite the submission of extended abstracts of 1000-1500 words. To participate in the workshop, please upload your submission document by March 17, 2019. For empirical research, you should be able to present your research question, data, and first results by the time of the workshop. One of the strengths of the Workshop is its small number of participants, which allows for in-depth discussions and personal interaction.

In order to maintain this, we limit the number of research presentations. At the same time, we will work to be flexible in our scheduling depending on the number of submissions we receive. We will notify applicants no later than April 25, 2019 about opportunities to participate. Accepted participants may submit a full paper by 10 May 2019.
