ICME-13 is pleased to offer a special activity for early career researchers who are attending ICME-13. The Early Career Researcher Day will directly precede the main ICME-13 conference.

The aim of this day is to provide early career researchers with opportunities to develop their research competencies in various fields, establish new contacts, building networks among themselves and meet and work with international experts in the field.

It will be held on Sunday, 24th July 2016 in the Educational Building H ( orange ) at the Faculty of Education of the University of Hamburg (Von-Melle-Park 8, 20146 Hamburg).

Early career researchers, attending ICME-13, are welcome to participate in this day. The additional fee of 50 Euro will include lunch and coffee breaks.
