The Call for proposals for the 27th Annual EAIE Conference is now closed. Individuals will be informed early March whether their session, workshop, poster session or Ignite© session has been accepted. If you submitted a proposal, you can view it here.

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, ‘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.

Tips for submitting a successful proposal

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

  • Read through the submission information specific to the sessions, Ignite© session, workshops and poster sessions to learn about the format, dates, contributor information, assessment criteria and more.
