Important Message Regarding the 2020 Conference

We take seriously our responsibility to serve the public good, to consider the health and wellbeing our Research Network members, and to protect the communities we work with and in. Simultaneously, we are committed to enabling our members to be productive and collaborative during this challenging time. In this context, we have decided to continue with the Twenty-seventh International Conference on Learning as a virtual-only event.

You can still register and participate as an “In-Person” delegate. In choosing this option, you will also receive a complimentary registration to the Twenty-eighth International Conference on Learning, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland, 7–9 July 2021. Additionally, the Regular Registration deadline has been extended.

You can also still register as a “Virtual” delegate. But please note: you will not receive the same benefits as an “In-Person” registration as described above.

Submission details and format guidelines for digital content for both "In-Person" and "Virtual" registrations are available by clicking here.
