Calls for Papers for the 4th International NEPS Conference and the conference "Education and Space" in fall 2019

The Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) organizes two related conferences: On 6 November 2019, the conference "Education and Space" will discuss current quantitative-empirical analyses in educational research on spatial questions. This will be followed by the 4th International NEPS Conference on 7 and 8 November 2019 with empirical contributions from all areas of educational research and a special focus on internationally comparative approaches.

Spatial categories represent an important dimension with regard to educational processes. The conference "Education and Space" is dedicated to this aspect and provides a forum for scientists to present their quantitative-empirical contributions to spatially sensitized educational research. Conference language is German; participation is free of charge.

Once a year the NEPS conferences bring together national and international researchers from various disciplines in Bamberg to present current projects and results. In addition to analyses on all topics of the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS), this year's event emphasizes international comparative approaches. Conference language is English; participation is free of charge.

Detailed information on both events including the "Calls for Papers" and the relevant dates can be found on the conference websites.
