Atlanta, GA (March 5-9, 2017)

Key Dates and Policies


Submission Deadline: October 1, 2016

Please note that CIES 2017 will not have an ‘early’ and a ‘late’ submission deadline.  All proposals will be due by 11:59pm CST on October 1, 2016.  The submission deadline will not be extended.  The submission system will open in August 2016.  Decisions on submissions will be made by early November.

Early Registration Deadline: January 15, 2017


A.) Membership: CIES membership is required to present at the CIES 2017 Conference.

B.) Participant attendance requirement: All authors of accepted papers and all participants in panel sessions are expected to attend the CIES conference and be present at the scheduled session. If an emergency or other circumstance prevents any authors from attending the CIES Meeting, they should immediately notify the CIES 2017 Conference Program Committee at

C.) Participation limits: To allow as many conference attendees to present as possible, individuals may submit only one proposal for an individual paper, panel presentation or roundtable paper session.

An individual may appear as a presenter only once in the final program, with the exception of special invited sessions or presentations. Another exception can be made for those who are listed as non-presenter in multi-authored papers or as another invited role, such as: discussant, non-presenting session chair or participant in special events. If you are unsure if these exceptions apply at you, please contact the CIES 2017 Conference Program Committee at

To avoid duplication of presentation content, individuals with multiple roles may not present the same material in different sessions. For example, if your paper is accepted at a Dissertation Mentoring Workshop, you will not be able to present the same paper for an individual or panel session.

Final decisions on the limits to individual participation in the annual meeting will be made at the discretion of the program committee.

D.) Equipment: Standard presentation equipment (LCD and overhead projectors and PowerPoint-equipped PCs) will be available for all paper and panel sessions. Presentation slides and electronic materials must be formatted to be compatible with PC / Microsoft Windows. Presentations as well as related files must be saved to your own personal “memory stick” and be ready to upload prior to your presentation.

E.) Proposal review and selection process: All submitted proposals will undergo blind peer review by experienced scholars and advanced doctoral students in the field of comparative and international education using the CIES 2017 Review Criteria. No identifying information you provide will be seen by our volunteer reviewers.
