The in-person section will be hosted by ITAM in Mexico City, but a limited number of attendees from all over the world will be able to join virtually. The event is sponsored by the Society for Political Methodology, Princeton University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The meeting will feature a limited number of paper workshops, a poster session for graduate students, and keynote talks by prominent political methodologists Jennifer Larson (Vanderbilt) and Cyrus Samii (NYU).

Event format

The event will feature parallel paper workshops, which will be restricted to registered participants. Participants may attend either personally or virtually. These sessions will consist of active discussions of previously circulated manuscripts; no presentation will take place. It is therefore imperative that all participants read the papers in advance and prepare feedback to ensure a lively and engaging discussion. To enable all participants to engage in productive conversation, authors are expected to submit complete drafts of their manuscripts no later than November 1, 2021. Authors will be provided with information on where to upload their manuscripts upon confirmation of acceptance.

There will be a total of two keynote presentations at the end of each day. These will be open to the public.

The poster session for graduate students will be held at lunchtime on Saturday, November 20.

All talks, posters and sessions will be held in English.

Meeting location

The meeting will be held at ITAM’s campus in Mexico City, Mexico, on November 19-20, 2021. Registered participants who so desire may attend the event virtually.
