Information Session: Comparative & International Education Society Annual Conference 2016

12.45 – 14.00
Wednesday 9 September 2015
Runme Shaw 203

The Comparative & International Education Society (CIES) is the world’s old-est and largest body of its type, established in the USA in 1956. The 2016 annual conference in Vancouver (Canada), 6-10 March, will be a special one for the CIES and for our Faculty.

  • For CIES, it will be the 60th anniversary conference with 2,000 – 3,000 participants in a very attractive location.
  • Our Faculty will have particular visibility because Professor Mark Bray is CIES President-Elect and responsible for the conference.

To support participation by both academic staff and research postgraduate students, the Faculty is providing travel grants to supplement those already available through other channels.
The information session will be led by Professor Mark Bray and supple-mented by Ms Nutsa Kobakhidze, a PhD student who is working as Assis-tant Conference Manager. Several longstanding CIES members in the Fac-ulty will contribute. The session will provide background information on the nature of the CIES and its conferences, and will explain how you can take advantage of this special occasion.
