Dear CSES User Community,

We write with three updates:

1. If you will be attending the Annual Conference of the European Political Science Association (EPSA) this week in Milan, you may be interested in the following CSES sessions:

On Friday June 23rd a special CSES-themed panel will be held from 8:15-10:00 in the Verdi Hall. The panel is titled "The determinants of the vote: Economics, social identities or ideological perceptions?" and includes four presentations.

On Friday June 23rd we invite you to attend a reception for the GESIS Klingemann Prize for the Best CSES Scholarship at 12:30 in the Solari Hall. The reception will include finger foods, beverages, and a short presentation of the winning work, which is the book "Coping with Complexity: How Voters Adapt to Unstable Parties" by Dani Marinova of the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

When arriving at EPSA please check for any scheduling or room changes that may have occurred. We look forward to seeing many of you there!

2. We would like to thank Russell J. Dalton of the University of California-Irvine for making his dataset "Party System Polarization Index for CSES Modules 1-4" available for public download on the CSES website under the Data Center.

3. CSES now has an English-language entry in Wikipedia. You can view it here:

Thank you for your support of the CSES!
