Call for Paper

Dear Colleague,

It is a great pleasure to inform you about the ERPA Congress 2014 that will be held in Istanbul University Culture and Convention Center/Turkey from 6 to 8 June 2014 ( We hope that the conference will enable you to share your research with an international research community and to engage in discussion about the current issues in the field of education. The scientific committee in ERPA Congress aims to keep the level of the presentations as high as possible so that it is a positive intellectual experience for all the participants. Therefore, we want you to remember ERPA Congress as a place where you discussed the issues and questions that count for your research, renewed relations with your colleagues and made contacts that helped you to develop new directions in your work.

Six branch congress will be held concurrently in ERPA congress 2014;

  • ERPA International Educational Sciences Congress
  • ERPA International Science and Mathematics Education Congress
  • ERPA International Social Sciences Education Congress
  • ERPA International Health and Physical Education Congress
  • ERPA International Fine Arts and Music Education Congress
  • ERPA International Special Education Congress

While registering the ERPA congress 2014 you will be asked to choose the one that is related to your field of study. The main purpose in incorporating six congresses within the scope of ERPA congress is to make the researchers aware of current trends in different fields, learn about the research conducted in different areas and help them discuss new trends and encourage interdisciplinary research. Therefore, the theme of the ERPA congress is “Interdisciplinary Research in Education”. Highlighting this theme does not mean underestimating or neglecting other important aspects of education research and practice.

We also hope the conference will be an enjoyable experience for all participants. Istanbul is a well-known city and can be described as the city of cities. You should therefore come and discover this beautiful city and enjoy the beauties of Istanbul. The Istanbul University was established in 1453 and is the oldest university in Turkey. The ERPA congress will be held in the Beyazıt-Central campus which is located in a great garden in the Antique City, in the middle of the city’s busy quarter, and surrounded by many historical and aesthetic architectural buildings. Some of the important historical and aesthetic architectural buildings are Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet Mosque) and Basilica Cistern (underground cistern).

All proceedings submitted to congress undergo blind review process by at least two anonymous reviewers. The ERPA Congress will publish a hardcopy “book of abstracts” and an eBook: all authors whose submissions will be accepted for publication will have the opportunity to submit a 5-10 page paper for inclusion in the eBook after reviewed by the Scientific Committee.
