ERASMUS coordinators are invited to make presentations and submit written papers on their experiences in the themes above. Workshops within the conference are also invited to discuss specific topics and to draw up concrete suggestions, which can be used by the EC (Education and Culture) in order to improve the ERASMUS programme in general as well as elements of the Bologna Process.

The conference will be concluded with a two stage Exchange ERASMUS Educational Fair through which each university could provide information to other universities on the programmes offered and arrangements for teacher and student mobility as well as ERASMUS placements. The fair is expected to serve as a basis for further bilateral agreements between institutions and between institutions and Enterprises. This year we will invite European Enterprises to participate in order to promote ERASMUS placements.

At this stage Erasmus Coordinators, Administrators, Enterprises representatives and Bologna Promoters who may be interested in attending the Conference with or without a paper should send a message with full address, fax and e-mail to the European Organizing Committee. The registration deadline is 15 April 2008. The deadline for abstracts is 31 March 2008. Notification of acceptance of abstracts is within 15 days. Further announcements and details will be sent to those responding to this call.
