University of Ottawa Teacher Candidates on Algonquin Exchange

[Updated] Call for Proposals to Host 2018 IAACS Triennial Conference

Last year, we posted a call for proposals to host the 2018 IAACS Triennial Conference in Asia and Australia. The deadline for proposals has been extended to December 30, 2015. In fact, by the conclusion of our Ottawa meeting, Morocco had informed the Executive that they would be willing to host the 2018 IAACS Triennial Conference in case this forthcoming and re-issued call results in no proposals from Asia and Australia.

Proposal Considerations: It is important to note that IAACS can offer no financial support for the Conference. Therefore, the host is responsible for calling for and managing registration fees as well as procuring other supporting funds.

For More Information: Please contact the Executive at .

Letter to Members (May 2015)

During the past week, many of us met at the University of Ottawa for our 5th Triennial Meeting. As has been happening in all these Triennial gatherings, the discussions opened up multiple possibilities to rethink our own work in relation to others. These conversations allow us to imagine our field differently.

First, I would like to thank all who worked so diligently and creatively to put the conference together. We all know numerous people contributed to the planning and facilitating of this international Conference. Not being able to nominate all here, I thank all in the name of the 2015 Conference Chairs, Nicholas Ng‐A-­Fook and Awad Ibrahim from University of Ottawa.
