Share your research at the conference

Every year, engaged IB educators and others conduct fascinating research on our programmes, students, and schools. Whether large or small, these studies produce valuable knowledge worth sharing.

The IB Research team is hosting a research poster session at the IB Global Conference in San Diego.  Whether you’re a university professor, an administrator pursuing a graduate degree, or a teacher conducting action research in the classroom, we want to hear from you. The presentation of research through posters is one of many ways in which the conference can enrich your professional experience.

How can I participate?

All interested poster presenters must submit an abstract. The abstract should describe original research on IB programme(s) and IB World Schools and should be 150 words or less with sections defined. Please do not use tables, charts, or graphs in your abstract submission. You can send your abstract via email below. 

The deadline for abstract submission is 1 March 2018. Applicants will receive a decision notification on or before 30 April 2018. You may submit your proposal (and if selected, display your findings) in English, French or Spanish.
