Are you planning to join the ICO ISS2023: Do not forget to register!

Registration will close on the 1st of April

The ICO International Spring School 2023, 8-12 May, 2023 – De Duinse Polders, Blankenberge – Belgium

We are pleased to invite all ICO PhD members to the ICO International Spring School (ISS) 2023. The ICO ISS is a mixture between a conference and a research retreat, and is an international educational event for PhD candidates from all over the world who do research in the domain of learning, instruction, and education.

The primary aim of the ICO Spring School is to learn. You can learn from the keynote speeches, learn from the various workshops organized by experts in their field, and learn by presenting and discussing issues with regard to your own PhD-project, in small groups with your peers. As a participant, you are also expected to review the presentations of your peers.

The second aim is to socialize and build your network in an international scientific community. The ICO ISS2023 is a valuable event for all PhD-candidates, independent of the stage of your research project.

Full time (ICO) PhDs are expected to attend the full week, but if you are a part time PhD or if you are not a member of ICO, you can also choose to attend either the first half (part A), or the second half of the week (part B). For more information on the time schedule go to the programme.

We are expecting PhD candidates from all over Europe. Are you going to be one of them?

What to expect:

  • Participation in advanced workshops related to methodology and themes within the educational sciences; 
  • Share your research in a paper or poster presentation or a round table discussion, and receive and provide peer feedback;
  • Join the social programme, which allows you to get to know your national and international peers.

Important dates

  • December 2022 until April 1st, 2023: Registration is open
  • April 1, 2023: Submission deadline for your abstract and paper 
  • April 1, 2023: Final date for the payment of the registration and accommodation fee
  • 8 May until the afternoon of 12 May 2023: ICO International Spring School 2023

And, help us spread the word: Do you know PhD’s who might be interested in joining? Feel free to inform them about the ICO ISS2023!

We are looking forward to meet you all in Blankenberge!
