Call for papers and Call for contributions


The conference will be an international meeting place where those engaged in education can meet and discuss the development of lifelong learning in the future. Researchers and professionals in lifelong learning and ICT in education will exchange and share their research and knowledge with representatives from the industry, employers’ organisations and trade unions. EdTech providers will present their technologies and methodologies supporting lifelong learning. In this Call we invite papers from scholars undertaking research on lifelong learning.

A symposium session builds on a theme and is proposed and planned by a symposium organiser. The papers focus on a common theme. A symposium has a chair (often the organiser) and often discussants.

The organiser of the symposium submits a proposal (as organiser’s text) by September 8. with a plan for the symposium including:

  2. An abstract describing the entire symposium (Max 200 words),
  3. The names of the contributors and titles of their presentations


NOTICE: The organizers will review the symposia and notify the review by September 10. Then the proposers of accepted symposia can invite presenters via the Oxford Abstracts platform to submit their abstract to the symposia by September 25.


Other conference formats:

The organisers welcome other formats as well, like a roundtable session, panels, workshops or other formats. This should be registered as “other formats” and clearly describe:
