Call for Papers


When submitting an oral presentation or a Poster or a Workshop or a Symposium, you will be required to submit an abstract ranging from 400 to 600 words via the Easy Chair system. The official language of the conference is English, so proposals should be sent and presented in this language.

The web address for the submission is:

Please, at this stage only submit an abstract; a pdf file, containing your complete paper, will be requested AFTER the Conference end.

Before your abstract submission, you should register to EasyChair - just click at the "sign up for an account" link at the login page and fill in the form. The system will send you an e-mail with the instructions how to finish the registration.
The registration to the Conference can be performed in a different page: Registration & Accommodation

The system will ask you to characterize the category of your contribution:
  1. Single oral presentation
  2. Poster
  3. Workshop
  4. Symposium

As a second step the system will ask you to classify your contribution in one of the following groups:
  1. Research (physics education research, empirical as well as theoretical)
  2. Research and development (including classroom ideas, practical issues, development etc. being more substantial than research)
  3. Classroom ideas, teaching and learning practice (no or minimal research part)

We are aware that these groups are not strictly defined. However we think that indicating the character of contributions can be useful both in reviewing the abstracts and in dividing them into sessions.

The Easy chair system will require to indicate a minimum of 3 keywords.
In the first keyword, please, characterize which age group your research/classroom ideas concerns (if this is applicable to your contribution). Please, use the following keywords:

You can indicate a broader range of ages (several age groups). The other keywords are intended to better characterize the content of your abstract.
Examples of keywords are:
Finally the Easy chair system will require to frame your contribution in one of such specific topics:
  1. Physics Teaching and Learning at Elementary, Secondary and University Levels
  2. Physics Teaching and Learning in Informal Settings
  3. In-service and Pre-service Teacher Education
  4. Physics Curriculum and Content Organization
  5. Pedagogical Methods and Strategies
  6. History of Physics in Physics Education
  7. ICT and Multi-Media in Physics Education
  8. Motivational Strategies and Metacognition
  9. Socio-Cultural Issues
