This conference is a forum for seminars in each of the ETEN TIGs, e.g., focusing on reports and future activities, as well as providing a forum to present new research and actual development, theories, knowledge, experience, and ideas concerning the development of educational practice.

To submit a proposal for the conference, contact the appropriate TIG leader. The names and e-mail addresses for the TIG Leaders can be found at the ETEN website.

A proposal consists of an abstract of the proposed presentation of about 250–350 words. The deadline for proposals is November 15, 2011, and all those accepted will be notified by December 15, 2011.
