Conference Program and Registration
The IRC-2013 is a three-day conference, beginning with a welcome reception on the evening of Tuesday, 25 June 2013 and ending on Friday afternoon, 28 June 2013. Pre-conference workshops will be held on 24–25 June 2013.
This page will be updated with an agenda and more detailed program information in early 2013. Please stay tuned!
The conference will offer ample time for discussion and informal interactions between junior and senior researchers from all over the world, to ensure a lively exchange of ideas. Each day of the conference will feature a keynote lecture in the morning, followed by parallel sessions through the afternoon, giving participants access to a range of topics in educational research and assessment. Each parallel session will include three presentations organized around a thematic strand relating to one or more of the IEA projects, such as TIMSS, TIMSS Advanced, CIVED, ICCS, PIRLS, prePIRLS, TEDS-M, and ICILS.
Participants of the workshops and the conference are warmly invited to attend a reception on Tuesday, 25 June. The social program also includes a group dinner on Thursday, 27 June. The reception and dinner will provide a relaxed social opportunity for attendees to make and renew acquaintances. Partners and family members are also welcome to take part in the social activities.
Participation in the conference, workshops, and social program is free, but participants are required to register via the online registration system.
