[Intro] [Previous figure]
16: full size] [Next figure]
this figure, the participants from selected country groups are shown for
each of the six ECER/ VETNET conferences. Comparison is facilitated by
indicating the proportions for each year, based on numbers of proceedings
authors (1998 to 2001) and presenters (2002 and 2003).
overall distribution of participants between the country groups confirms
the pattern already made visible in the previous map (figure
15). What this new figure adds is the impression of continuity throughout
the period, only interrupted by certain variations especially within the
South-West European group. These variations may be partly attributed to
the location of ECER conferences: 2000 in the UK, as against 2001 in France
and 2002 in Portugal.
small proportion of the Central and Eastern European group appears virtually
unchanged. This situation contrasts with the noticable, even if modest,
rise of participation from these countries in the project partnerships
(figures 4 to 6). The difference
just noted may confirm the observation about policies made with regard
to the previous mapping (figure 15).
