27th International Input-Output Association Conference
9th Edition of the International School of I-O Analysis
30th June to 5th July 2019, Glasgow, Scotland


Buddy Programme

On the Monday evening after the ISIOA School Lectures - 1st July 2019


For IIOA Conference newbies and the experienced attendee. This is an opportunity to connect new attendees with more experienced I-O researchers and experts as well as share tips and tricks on how to make the most of your IIOA Conference experience and beyond.


Being at any conference for the first time can be overwhelming - you may not know anyone, you may not know which presentations are relevant for you and you may not connect the names of the people you cite with the faces of the people.

The Buddy Programme aims at giving you an easy start by connecting you with more experienced conference participants, who can show you around and introduce you to the IIOA crowd.

This programme is open to everyone new to the I-O community, not only students. Young I-O scholars, who have already been to IIOA Conferences are also encouraged to participate.

Please sign up either as a newbie or if you want to be a buddy for one or two newbies :)

Participation process

Both, newbies and more experienced researchers need to sign up prior to the 2019 IIOA Conference:

  • You will need to provide your name, email, affiliation, and most importantly, your research interests.
  • We will then match the newbies with experienced researchers according to their research interests.
  • We will inform you about your buddy via email, by Friday, 14th June 2019.
  • If you want, you can contact each other before the 2019 IIOA Conference.
  • We will all meet on Monday night of the IIOA Conference, shortly before the 2019 IIOA Conference reception, so you can meet up with you buddy.
  • Registration will be available until 1st June 2019 with this form.
