The Call for proposals for the 27th Annual EAIE Conference is closed. Submitters were informed in early March whether their session, workshop, poster session or Ignite© session was accepted. If you submitted a proposal, you can view it here. The Call for proposals for the 2016 Conference will open in October 2015.

What are we looking for?

The Conference Programme Committee (CPC) seeks current and thought-provoking topics, and speakers who can engage their audiences with quality-driven content in lively and informative discussions.

The CPC looks for proposals that:

  • Link to the conference theme.
  • Explore trends and developments in the field.
  • Share best practices and innovative solutions.
  • Examine controversial topics that evoke debate and discussion.

The EAIE Expert Communities assist the CPC in selecting proposals for the conference. A number of Expert Communities have suggested some current and relevant topics which may help to give you some ideas for your proposal.

Tips for submitting a successful proposal

To give your proposal the best chance of being accepted, follow our useful tips:

  • When applicable, ensure that you include contributors from various institutions/countries and a variety of viewpoints.
