The 5th IEA International Research Conference (IRC-2013) was organized in cooperation with the National Institute of Education.

The conference program included four keynote lectures and a number of paper presentations reporting on a wide range of secondary research using data from IEA studies, including ICCS, CIVED, ICILS, PIRLS, prePIRLS, TEDS-M, TIMSS, and TIMSS Advanced. The papers from the conference are listed below; papers that are available for download are indicated with a link ( DOWNLOAD).

The conference was preceded on 24–25 June 2013 by a series of training workshops: "Introduction to IEA Databases and IDB Analyzer," "Using HLM with International Large-Scale Assessment Data," "Assessment Designs, Item Response Theory, and Proficiency Estimates," and "Sampling in Large-Scale Assessments in Education."
