 WIFO Home


  Dear Colleague

The next European Conference on Educational Research (ECER 2006) will take place at the University of Geneva 13th-16th September 2006. The Conference theme is “Transforming Knowledge”. The full Call for Proposals is available on the EERA website:


The proposal submission form can be downloaded from this web page. The submission deadline is WEDNESDAY 1ST FEBRUARY 2006.

For further information see conference page:

The Network of VET researchers (VETNET) will prepare a specific ECER programme as in previous years. You can find information on VETNET activities and on the two preceding programmes at Dublin (2005) and Crete (2004) on the page below:

VETNET / ECER <http://www.vet-research.net/>

You are also welcome on this home page to join in blogging, for instance about issues from the Dublin conference, or to view the Dublin photo gallery and the 'flickr' slideshow of the keynote speech!

The proceedings of discussion at major VETNET sessions in Dublin are available on the WIFO page below:
Proceedings 2005 <http://www.b.shuttle.de/wifo/vet-hrd/ecer05.htm>

Recent developments of VETNET ECER activities have been traced in several analytical presentations, including the following:

# Development of the VETNET Research Community (Ludger Deitmer 2005)

# ECER VETNET and HRD conference in comparison (SM 2005)

# Thematic profile of EU projects and VETNET ECER papers (SM 2004)

We are pleased to note an increasing involvement of researchers from Central and Eastern Europe in ECER VETNET activities. You may look up a complete overview of papers related to CEEC (1998 to 2005) on the page below:

CEEC papers <http://www.b.shuttle.de/wifo/vet/ecerceec.htm>

Nevertheless, the number of CEEC participants at the annual conferences is still modest, as you can see in the figure below:

So we should use every chance of encouraging and supporting the involvement of colleagues from Central and Eastern Europe!

With best wishes
