Individuals or groups submitting abstracts are asked to reflect on one or more of these themes in their papers or presentations.

ICET is a conference where different communities come together: researchers, policy makers and practitioners. It is not a traditional research conference, so while there is the opportunity for papers to be refereed and for people to write research papers, teacher education and school leadership-related policy and practice initiatives are also welcomed and encouraged

In order to create opportunities for many voices, authors are limited to no more than TWO presentations.

Submission requirements
The abstract (not exceeding 250 words) should be submitted by 20 March 2013 to icet2013@stou.ac.th. The abstract will be included in the conference book. Notification of acceptance will be sent no later than 20 April 2013.

The full paper (not exceeding 3,000 words) should be submitted by 20 May 2013 extended to 31 May 2013 to icet2013@stou.ac.th. All feedback from the refereeing process will be returned to authors to enable the paper to be finalized. The final version of the full paper must be submitted to icet2013@stou.ac.th by 15 June 2013. The final version of any full paper which is not received by the due date will not be included in the proceedings.
