Since the dawn of man, war has played a part in the building and shaping of countries, societies, and political structures. An often-overlooked casualty of war is that of the children and their right to an education.

This 2011 video / virtual conference asks the questions:

¨ How does war effect the education of children?
¨ What is the quality of a child’s education during a time of war?
¨ Is school conducted in a war zone?
¨ What is the effect on higher education in a war zone?

These are difficult questions, but ones that must be asked to ensure the future of the proper and rightful education of the world’s children.

Please submit your 200-400 word abstract on this subject using the key points below as a guideline to your submission. We welcome all submissions that are related to this subject-matter.

¨ Curriculum changes in a war zone
¨ Effects of war on grades
¨ Being a teacher in a war zone
¨ Counseling children during wartime
¨ Teaching materials and availability during war
¨ War and the university
¨ Art of wartime children
¨ Children’s literature on the subject of war
¨ How children cope with the stresses of war

This is a video/virtual conference. It is conducted much in the same manner as a physical appearance conference, only you will be required to create a digital video recording of your presentation in lieu of physical attendance. This type of conference was suggested by many visitors and update subscribers. It was essentially created to cut the travel expenses associated with attending a physical conference. We sincerely hope you enjoy this type of conference as much as we have enjoyed the research and development processes of implementing them.

Here is how a video / virtual conference works:

All of the steps remain unchanged in the process of submitting your abstract, booking form, and conference draft papers.

Submit your 200-400 words abstract via email by the scheduled deadline.
Receive your acceptance letter.
Submit a booking form
Make payment for your participation
Create your conference draft and submit it via email by the scheduled deadline.

In lieu of physical attendance, you will then:

Create a digital video recording of your presentation using a cellular phone, digital
camera, digital video recorder, or webcam that is 20-30 minutes in length.
Receive your copy of the full-length conference via email (.zip) and postal mail (DVD).
You will have 30 days to view the conference and make comments, suggestions, and
rebuttals using a delegates only section of our website.

Once all of these steps are done, we will create the Ebook of the conference proceedings.
The advisory board will conduct a blind review of each conference draft paper. Delegates that have submitted a paper(s) that are flagged as “further development warranted”, will be notified of the need for a full-length version of their conference draft paper. This paper will need to be 16-24 pages including the reference section. This paper will become part of an edited hard copy that will result from all chosen papers.
