UBIQUITOUS LEARNING CONFERENCE
Illini Center, University of Illinois, Chicago, USA
17-19 November 2008
The Ubiquitous Learning Conference investigates the uses of technologies in learning, including devices with sophisticated computing and networking capacities which are now pervasively part of our everyday lives - from laptops to mobile phones, games, digital music players, personal digital assistants and cameras. The Conference explores the possibilities of new forms of learning using these devices not only in the classroom, but in a wider range of places and times than was conventionally the case for education. Ubiquitous learning is made possible in part by the affordances of the new, digital media. What's new about it? What's not-so-new? What are the main challenges of access to these new learning opportunities?
As well as an impressive line-up of main speakers, the Conference will also include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by practitioners, teachers and researchers. We would particularly like to invite you to respond to the Conference Call-for-Papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed Ubiquitous Learning: An International Journal. If you are unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in this fully refereed academic Journal.
Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission. Full details of the Conference, including an online proposal submission form, are to be found at the Conference website - http://www.ULConference.com
Australian Association for Research in Education International Research Conference
CHANGING CLIMATES: EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURES
Queensland University of Technology Kelvin Grove Campus
30 November to 4 December.
We encourage presenters to engage with the conference theme of 'changing climates' and how this current social concern applies equally well to education and the various policy, funding, institutional and social domains that shape the work of teachers and educational researchers.
So, what's changing and what can be changed?
What can and should be sustained?
Such changes are not confined to an Australian context. We welcome overseas researchers to join us and share in collaborative dialogue.
Building on the strong heritage of AARE conferences, CHANGING CLIMATES: EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURES will be more environmentally friendly, provoke more rigorous debate and sustainable discussions, and raise the bar on quality. The conference will open with a Welcome to Country by local Indigenous people. We warmly invite all education researchers and educators from across all sectors to join us for what promises to be a refreshing, innovative and stimulating conference. http://www.aare.edu.au/conf2008/index.htm
SECOND WORLD UNIVERSITIES FORUM
Indian Institute of Technology - Bombay, Mumbai, India
16-18 January 2009
The World Universities Forum was created in the belief that academe must better engage today's most crucial questions, and that higher education itself must be included as part of the wider discussion of global change. The Forum encourages the participation of university executives, administrators, scholars and research students, as well as journalists, policy makers, business and political leaders, and others who understand that the importance of the university extends well beyond campus.
Keynote speakers include:
* Professor Brenda Gourley (Vice Chancellor, Open University, UK)
* Professor Richard Larkins (Vice Chancellor, Monash University, Australia)
* Professor Ashok Misra (Director, Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay, India)
* Professor Mahmood Mumdani (Columbia University, USA)
* Lord Bikku Parekh (University of Westminster, UK)
* Professor Deepak Pental (Vice Chancellor, University of Delhi, India)
* Professor Mark Wrighton (President, Washington University, USA)
In addition, the Forum will also include numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations. We would particularly like to invite you to respond to the Forum Call-for-Papers. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication in the fully refereed Journal of the World Universities Forum. If you are unable to attend the Forum in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for review and possible publication in the Journal, and provide access to the online edition of the Journal.
deadline for the next round in the call-for-papers (a title and short abstract)
is 11 September 2008. Future
deadlines will be announced on the Forum website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks
of submission. Full details of the Forum, including an online proposal
submission form, may be found at the Forum website - http://universitiesforum.com.

European Science Education Research
Association Conference 2009
31 August - 4 September 2009
We are pleased to announce the invitation to participate in the ESERA 2009 Conference which will be held in Istanbul. Istanbul is a very exciting city, so we hope the conference will be too! As the local organizing committee we are making sure that all the preparations are in place so that we can host you at this wonderful event.
Three Turkish universities are hosting the conference this time: Gazi University, Hacettepe University, and Yeditepe University. Science education in Turkey is enjoying a rapid growth. Every year dozens of doctorates are being awarded in several Turkish Universities and many PhD are joining the group in Turkey by earning their degrees abroad. Nowadays you may see more articles in international science education journals originating from Turkey. We strongly believe that this conference will bring more excitement to all of us.
The conference web site is now open and we will post information in due time about the developments. Please do not forget to check the web site at http://www.esera2009.org (flyer) from time to time and also inform your colleagues in your institutions and countries.
We wish you a refreshing and rewarding conference and looking forward to
meeting you all in Istanbul!
