Following the research interest of the prize winner, the main symposium theme will be Trust and legitimacy in the work to combat crime. In 2024 we will also have a second theme which is When children commit crime. As usual, there is also a general theme, Contemporary criminology, which covers a broad range of subjects in the area of criminology.

Abstract submission information

Speakers who have submitted a single presentation/abstract will be assigned to a panel with two or three other speakers sharing a common theme or purpose (to the extent that this is possible). Speakers are permitted to submit multiple presentations/abstracts and to appear in several sessions. However, the committee reserves the right to exclude second and third contributions from speakers in order to give as many speakers as possible the opportunity to present. Participants are also welcome to suggest a full panel session, together with other researchers, policymakers or practitioners. Please submit all abstracts to be included in the suggested panel session, together with a panel session title.

Please note that there are a limited number of panel sessions. If the number of proposals received exceeds the time available for presentations, the submitted contributions will be subject to a review process.

If we are not able to assign your contribution(s) to a session, you will, as far as space allows, be offered the opportunity to display your work at a poster session. The poster session will be held on Monday evening, June 10, 2024. After the poster session, posters will be available to view throughout the symposium. All abstracts (including poster abstracts) will be published in the program book on our website and included in the digital program. However, abstracts received after the deadline will not be included.
