International Symposiums on Education as part of the 21 st HSE April International Conference on Economic and Social Development



April 06 – 10, 2020 



We are pleased to announce two International Symposiums on Education to be held during the 21st HSE April International Academic Conference on Economic and Social Development in Moscow, Russia.

The first Symposium, “Digital Transformation of Education,” will address various facets of the qualitative changes taking place across domains of the education system that are prompted by the accelerating digitalization and introduction of innovative technologies in educational processes – a dimension that has become increasingly relevant for policymakers, researchers and practitioners.

The second Symposium, “Economics, Sociology and Politics of Education,” will combine multiple disciplinary perspectives on theoretical and empirical issues in economics, sociology and politics of education. Specifically, the agenda will seek to foreground the latest and most important insights into educational inequality, the development of human capital and the contribution of education to the society and economy.

The Symposiums will bring together leading international researchers, representatives of international organizations, major corporate chiefs, Russian state officials, etc.

Researchers and experts in education, development, and political science, as well as representatives of executive authorities and local self-government bodies are invited to participate.

Working Languages:

Russian and English.

Time Limits:

  • Presentation: 15–20  minutes
  • Roundtable discussions: 5–7 minutes.

Deadline for Proposals:

Applicants are invited to submit extended abstracts through HSE’s online system until NOVEMBER 25, 2019.

Proposal Requirements:

Papers presented at the Conference should contain the results of original research based on up-to-date research methodology. The Conference Programme will be developed based on accepted proposals.

The summary should be 1–3 pages long, 1.5 spacing (up to 7,000 symbols) and should clearly state the problem, research approach used (particularly, if there is a model on which the analysis is based), and the main results. In addition, the abstract should indicate the novelty of the obtained results in comparison with previously published works. Proposals that do not meet these requirements will not be considered.

A group of authors, each individually registered in the Conference system, may request permission from the Programme Committee to present their reports in one session. To do so, they must complete the form on the Conference website by November 25, 2019.

One author may present one individual paper and no more than 2 co-authored papers at the Conference. A session should contain no more than two papers submitted by the same organization. A standard session lasts 1.5 hours. Proposals for the formation of sessions will be considered by the Programme Committee when reviewing applications and developing the Conference Programme.

The Programme Committee's decision about the acceptance of the papers will be made by January 24, 2020, based on the reviews conducted by independent experts. The preliminary programme will be available on the Conference’s website.

Scholars whose papers are included in the programme must confirm their participation through their personal account in the HSE University's system by February 10, 2020 (otherwise, their paper will be excluded from the programme) and provide slides of their presentation in English by March 13, 2020 for publication on the Conference’s website.
