After the organization of seven successful annual international conferences (see previous conferences ), the 2nd International Conference on Education (EDU2021) aims to provide an opportunity for academics, professionals, and industry experts from various fields, with cross-disciplinary interests, to discuss the future directives and innovations in Education.

Our main priority is your health security and seeing what has happened around the world with COVID-19 we should not take risks, no matter how much we would like to physically meet. This is why registrants will be able to upgrade to in-person attendance if circumstances allow — or to shift from attending in-person to joining virtually if new restrictions keep them home. And even if remote participation will only require half the normal registration fee: a) we promote this option for now, and b) we will do our best to provide remote participants with equal opportunities to exchange, share, and communicate.

The conference topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
bilingual education, identity and education, educational psychology, teaching approaches, teacher and student, education strategy, teacher education, educational foundations, online education, education technology, special education, teaching methodology, art education/art therapy, bilingual education, computer education, early childhood education, elementary education, secondary education, higher education, multicultural education, science education, educational psychology, educational foundations, health education, career and technical education, adult education, business education, education leadership, ethical issues in education, diversity and equality in education, cross-disciplinary areas of education, and life-long learning education. Topics are broadly defined, but not limited to the above.

This year, participants can propose either a traditional paper presentation, or an alternative presentation format, such as a laboratory, workshop, or roundtable discussion. Please find here all the different formats you can propose at EDU2021.

For paper presentations, please submit your abstract by email to  , in .doc or .docx file using the Abstract_template. Decisions are reached within two weeks of the abstract submission. The deadline to register and to submit full papers will be specified in your acceptance letter.
