Empirical research on sentencing (ERoS) annual conference

Ljubljana, August & September 2020


Taking into account the circumstances surrounding travel and gatherings, the third annual conference of the ERoS community of researchers will take place in a different format. Still hosted by the Institute of Criminology, we will forgo the lovely sights of Ljubljana and instead meet online.

To accommodate people’s busy schedules and avoid “Zoom fatigue” we scheduled a series of online Zoom meetings lasting about 1,5-2 hours each over the months of August and September. The meetings will take place on Thursdays at 15.00 CEST (Central European Summer Time).

At ERoS we are excited to start our summer gathering, which will, hopefully, still allow plenty of opportunities to share experience, opinions, and knowledge on sentencing research and foster informal relationships among researchers interested in the topic.

We have set up five panels with panellists from various jurisdictions and sentencing systems on a range of general and more specific sentencing issues. The panels are now set, but should there be continued interest we may revisit this decision.

Participants are welcome to register their interest by sending an email at mojca.plesnicar@pf.uni-lj.si, thereby agreeing to be informed about zoom links and updates regarding the seminars and ERoS.

For those not able to join us live – should the presenters agree, we will record the sessions and make them available for registered participants for a limited time after the sessions. The same is true for the presentations – should the presenters agree, they will be uploaded to ERoS’s web page and available to all.

We look forward to starting our conversation in August!
