The news and events highlighted in this area of Teacher Research.net are regularly updated so please do keep checking in. Major research events such as the British Educational Research Association Conference and the conference for the American Educational Research Association advertise deadlines for submission of papers well in advance. If you would like to submit your work for presentation as a paper, poster or round table discussion make sure that you start to plan well in advance of this date. Competition at the major conferences is often very high and it is important to look carefully at the theme of the conference and embed this in any proposal you make.
