The ICO NSS, a networking event
The ICO NSS is a biennial, two-day networking event for all ICO Members: PhDs, staff and postdoc-members. During this event, ICO members can meet, mingle, and learn about the projects of other ICO members, while the PhD-candidates can practice their presentation skills in a safe environment.

At the ICO NSS, you can

  • learn about new developments in educational sciences during the presentations of the PhD-candidates;
  • meet kindred research spirits during the Meet-your-Theme Group-session;
  • and informally catch up with long lost colleagues at the conference dinner on Thursday evening.

During both days a lunch will be offered. 

The PhD presentation sessions
The focus of the National School is on the ICO PhD-candidates. PhD’s will present their project, either in a Junior Presentation (for 1st and 2nd year candidates) or in a Senior Presentation (3rd or 4th year candidates). The Junior Presentation can be either a Poster Presentation, or a Round Table Session. The Senior Presentation is a Paper Presentation. More information about the different presentation types can be found on the website, on the pages on Presentations

More information
To find out more about the ICO NSS, go to the ICO National Spring School website. In due time the site will be filled with the schedule, and more information about the keynote and the workshops. We will also try to provide you with some information of available hotels and hostels in the area in case you need to find yourself a place to stay.

We are looking forward to meeting you all again on 17 and 18 March, 2022!
