The International Conference on Education and Educational Psychology 2012 will take place in Istanbul, Turkey, October 10th - 13th, 2012. This conference will not only build on the success of the previous ICEEPSY conferences but will seek to raise the bar in international exchange of ideas, collaborations and cooperation among academics, educators and educational psychologists and other practitioners.
The 2012 conference will provide unrivalled opportunities for participants to rub minds and bounce off ideas with each other. It will seek to facilitate the discussion including the challenges on education and educational psychology internationally providing a forum for scientific debate and constructive interaction in a multi cultural social environment such as Istanbul. The conference will provide a platform for educators, teachers, researchers, research students and practitioners to present their work; to exchange knowledge, ideas and experience and will identify solutions to existing challenges worldwide known in education and educational psychology. Doctoral candidates are also explicitly invited to present and discuss their research ideas and work in progress.
The ICEEPSY 2012 Scientific Committee and Board of Reviewers have expanded the conference themes for 2012 and have provided added features including pre-conference continuous professional development workshops, Poster Presentations, and Special Interest Group (SIG) symposiums.
ICEEPSY 2011 attracted over 350 abstracts and papers from participants - colleagues and professionals - from 49 countries from across the world. As with previous conferences, abstracts from the 2012 conference will be published by ICEEPSY and a full text of papers will be provided by Elsevier in the ICEEPSY 2012 Proceedings.
ICEEPSY 2011 conference in Istanbul was a huge success and ICEEPSY 2012 promises to be another high quality event. Istanbul is a special city and one-time European Capital of Culture city with its position as a bridge between Europe and Asia - the Western part of the city is in Europe, and the Eastern is in Asia. The city's hugely important historic buildings provide visitors with a great lot to see. I hope that the accessibility of the conference venue and its proximity to the city's major attractions provides additional reason to attend.
