International Conference on 21st Century Education 2015

Dear Colleague:

We have many critical issues facing education in the 21st century. However, developing a plan to take education in the right direction is easier said than done. Come join an international conversation on the latest research and developments on how to best prepare citizens for work and life in the 21st century. The 21st Century Academic Forum, in collaboration with the Higher Colleges of Technology, invites you to the 2015 International Conference on 21st Century Education. We encourage researchers, educators, policymakers, and other stakeholders to contribute to this important discussion on 21st century education in Dubai 13-15 November 2015.

Conference Venue: Higher Colleges of Technology - Dubai Men's College (Academic City, Dubai, UAE)

Organizers: 21st Century Academic Forum and the Higher Colleges of Technology

Conference Theme: Learning by Doing: Preparing 21st Century Citizens for Work and Life

Ways of Participating:

- Oral Presentation: 25 minutes
- Poster Presentation: 3 hours (held on November 14th from the a.m. coffee break through lunch)
- Absentee Presentation: For those who are unable to join us in Dubai, we offer you the opportunity to participate as an Absentee Presenter. Absentee Presenters can: submit their narrated PPT to publish on our YouTube channel, have their abstract printed in the Conference Program Book, and have their paper published in the Conference Proceedings
- Non-Presenter (Listener): For those interested in attending to participate in the various presentation sessions.

Value Added Opportunities:

The 21st Century Academic Forum has a new initiative called the Research Support Program (RSP) that allows researchers to attend free workshops on general research skills, as well as on presentation and academic writing skills. Our team of volunteers will lead workshops and work with individuals on a one-on-one basis to assist in developing his/her academic research skills. We hope that relationships will be forged at the conference that will continue on well after the conclusion of the Dubai conference.

IC21CE 2015 participants will also be able to attend the International Conference on Language Learning and Teaching (ICLLT 2015), which is held in parallel with IC21CE 2015. The aim of the ICLLT conference is to explore the latest developments in language learning instruction and assessment. For more information on the ICLLT conference, please visit the ICLLT conference homepage:

Presentation Topic Tracks:

Please visit the Call for Proposals page of our website for an extensive list of presentation topic tracks:

Abstract Submission:

Abstracts are peer-reviewed by our Conference Committee. Authors are invited to submit their abstracts in English through our Online Submission System until the final deadline of September 21, 2015. The Conference Committee reviews abstract proposals on a rolling basis and authors will typically receive a decision within two weeks of his/her submission.

Paper Publication Opportunities:

All papers that meet the requirements set by the editorial board of the 21st Century Academic Forum's Conference Proceedings will be published in our online Conference Proceedings (ISSN: 2330-1236). Papers must be submitted for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings by February 15, 2016. We purposely set the deadline for papers three months following the conference with the rationale that authors should use the feedback they receive at the conference in crafting the final draft of their paper.

The Conference Proceedings will be published on May 16, 2016. The Conference Proceedings editorial board in turn works with the editors of our peer-reviewed International Journal of 21st Century Education (ISSN 2330-1244) to select papers for possible publication. An editor of The International Journal of 21st Century Education will contact selected authors and begin the editing process to publish issues of the journal based on a thematic basis.

We look forward to a diverse group of people from around the world to gather in Dubai to discuss the many critical issues facing education in the 21st century. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or requests.

Best regards,

21st Century Academic Forum
Higher Colleges of Technology
