The ACED Work in Progress sessions are intended to assist ACED members (with a particular focus on PhD students) with any questions regarding their research.

Presenters are asked to prepare a document summarizing the issues they want to brainstorm about (e.g., research questions and hypotheses, theoretical or empirical problems) and distribute it to all ACED members a week before the scheduled date.

One person is assigned as discussant however all attending members are asked to individually think about the issues, and reflect on it during the brainstorm session by providing opinions, ideas and/or suggestions.
