Become a speaker

Share your knowledge and best practice examples with a prime audience of higher education professionals by chairing or speaking in a session, workshop, poster session or Ignite© session at the EAIE Conference.

The Call for proposals for the 27th Annual EAIE Conference is now open. Submit your proposal by 4 November 2014.

What are we looking for?

We are now accepting proposals for sessions, workshops, Ignite© sessions and poster sessions. The Conference Programme Committee (CPC) invites all those interested in international higher education to become actively involved in the conference programme for 2015. The 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, ‘A Wealth of Nations’.
  • 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.
