Papers accepted for presentation at the AHED workshop will only be considered for the AHES main conference after other eligible papers.   AHES also offers Student Travel Scholarships to help students attend the conference and the AHED workshop (see eligibility).   Please visit the AHED submissions page for more details and to submit your abstract and full paper.   All submissions will be reviewed by the Scientific Review Committee, and notifications will be sent to the presenting student no later than  31 July 2016.   To Register for the Workshop please go here.  There is no registration fee for students participating in the workshop, but students (or the student’s institution) will be responsible for the AHED group dinner (27th September), travel and accommodation costs, and if you choose to attend the AHES Conference, the conference registration and conference dinner fees.
