The call for conference proposals for EAIE Seville 2017 is now closed.
Theme: A mosaic of cultures
With its beautiful, multicultural references and colourful tiled walls, Seville makes for a fitting metaphor of the work done by international educators. As a field, international higher education is the craft of bringing different perspectives together. In exposing our universities, our faculty, our students and our efforts to the world, we nurture critical thinking and fruitful collaborations. From this great assortment of ideas, best practices emerge. Like Seville's own mosaics, what is created in the process is much more interesting than the sum of its parts.

Workshops are a training experience available to conference participants on Tuesday, at an additional fee. They should be highly interactive and provide networking opportunities.
Sessions give participants a quick overview – 30 or 60 minutes – of a particular subject. As well as knowledge-sharing, sessions should offer enough room for discussion.
Ignite© sessions are a fast-paced first glance at different topics, intended to fire up discussions. Speakers have just five exciting minutes in which to present an idea.
Poster sessions combine graphic and text elements into a poster to display a specific topic. Presenters are allocated a 90-minute slot in which to discuss their work with participants.
