The World Education Research Association (WERA) invites submissions for papers and symposia for the WERA Focal Meeting to be held in Hong Kong on 30 November to 2 December, 2017. WERA is an association of major national, regional, and specialty education research associations dedicated to sharing scholarship, developing networks, and mutually supporting capacity building. The WERA 2017 Focal Meeting is an integral part of the Hong Kong Educational Research Association (HKERA) International Conference 2017 and consists of a program of paper and symposia sessions on topics of world-wide scope that are embedded in the conference of a WERA member association.
WERA symposia and paper sessions are intended to complement and extend those presented at the HKERA conference under the HKERA Call for Submissions. In general, the WERA Focal Meeting seeks to feature research that includes more than one country or is comparative, cross-cultural, international, or transnational in conceptualization, scope, or design.
Paper submissions need to meet these criteria; symposia submissions can include papers from single sites or countries as long as the presentations combined are from different countries and the aims of the symposium are anchored in worldwide or global issues. Duplicate submission through the HKERA and WERA online submission systems is not allowed.
The Call for Submissions is posted on the WERA website (www.weraonline.org). Please note that the Call includes an invitation to submit proposals for individual papers and symposia. The online submission system can be found on the WERA-HKERA website at www.eduhk.hk/wera_hkera2017.
Submissions must be completed by March 31, 2017; 23:59 Hong Kong Time (GMT +8).
