Call for research poster presentations

Last updated:

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 Hong Kong. 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. 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 22 February 2019. Applicants will receive a decision notification on or before 1 March 2019.
