ODI and UNICEF are currently calling for relevant papers to be submitted for consideration for a conference taking place in London this November. Papers can draw upon original research, evidence from past crises or first-hand policy-making experience to advance the discussion of how best to protect children and ensure their access to basic and social services during and after the crisis. The deadline for abstract submissions (300 words in length) is July 31, 2009 and should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org by July 31 for consideration. The conference organisers will decide which abstracts to accept for the conference and inform authors by 30 August. Final paper submissions will be expected by 15 October.
