November 7-8, 2019 | LIfBi Bamberg
The international NEPS conference series at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (LIfBi) brings together scientists from different disciplines and from different stages of their academic careers to discuss current projects and findings in educational research. The framework for this event is provided by the National Education Panel Study (NEPS) with its six panel cohorts and its rich research database on competence development, educational processes, educational choices, and returns to education in formal, non-formal, and informal contexts.
Empirical contributions on all NEPS-related topics, including methodological issues, are welcome for paper or poster presentations. The analyses to be presented do not necessarily have to be based on the NEPS data. The program features a keynote lecture by Prof. Eric A. Hanushek from the Hoover Institute at Stanford University, one of the leading educational economists. The traditional award ceremony for the best NEPS publication and a round table with the Research Data Center team complete the agenda. The conference is held at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories in Bamberg. Conference language is English.
