University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, 26-29 June 2007

The conference will address a range of critically important themes in the field of education today. This is a conference for any person with an interest in, and concern for, education at any of its levels and in any of its forms, from early childhood, to schools, to higher education and lifelong learning – and in any of its sites, from home to school to university to the workplace.

Speakers will include some of the world’s leading thinkers and in the field of education, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations by researchers and teachers. We would particularly like to invite you to respond to the conference call for papers and presentations. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication before or after the conference in the fully refereed International Journal of Learning. If you are unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for refereeing and possible publication in the journal, as well as access to the online version of the journal.

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 15 January 2007. Proposals are reviewed within one week of submission.

Full details of the conference, including an online call for papers form, are to be found at the conference website –

We look forward to receiving your proposals and hope you will be able to join us in Johannesburg in June 2007.
