GIREP-EPEC 2009 Call for papers
You are invited to register for the international conference for physics teachers, educators and researchers to be held at the University of Leicester, UK, August 17 - 21, 2009.
The conference is sponsored by the International Research Group on Physics Teaching (GIREP), Physics Education Division of the European Physical Society and will incorporate the Physics Higher Education Conference 2009.
The conference has the theme of Community and Cooperation and will bring together physics researchers and physics educators at all levels to encourage the exploration and exchange of ideas concerning new developments in teaching and new topics that might help to shape future curricula. The plenary talks reflect this by being divided into a physics frontiers strand and a physics education strand. The speakers in each strand emphasise the international nature of the conference, and include distinguished invitees from Mexico and the USA as well as several European speakers.
Frontiers of physics:
Ken Pounds (Leicester) X-ray astrophysics
Els de Wolf (Amsterdam) Neutrinos
Martina Knoop (Marseille) Spectroscopy of cold atoms
Steve Swithenby (Open University) Brain imaging
Developments in physics education:
Dean Zollman (Kansas State) Learning from video fragments of experienced teachers
Josip Slisko (Puebla) Repeated errors in physics textbooks and the culture of teaching
Elizabeth Swinbank (York)
Phil Scott (Leeds) Role of the teacher in concept learning
Hans Niedderer (Bremen) Student ownership in physics learning
Proposals are invited for oral presentations, workshops, posters and symposia. These should be submitted via the Abstract Submission Form on the conference website (http://www.physics.le.ac.uk/girep2009). The closing date for abstracts is 25 April 2009.
Early registration fee (by 25th April): �160 (�140 for EPS and GIREP members)
Registration fee after 25th April: �200 (no concessions)
