EPDE and CAL Conferences

InQbate are supporting two conferences which are taking place in Brighton in 2009. The team at the Brighton Creativity Centre are assisting with the 11th International Conference on Engineering and Product Design Education (E&PDE 09) and the Computer Assisted Learning conference 2009 (CAL 09).

The E&PDE 09 conference will be held on the 19th and 11th September at the University of Brighton, UK, in partnership with the Design Education Special Interest Group (DESIG) of the Design Society and the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED). The conference will bring together representatives from education and industry who have an interest in developing new approaches and directions in design education. The conference will provide a forum for educators and researchers from product development, engineering and industrial design, together with industry and government representatives to discuss current educational issues and to identify new approaches, new challenges and new directions for development. This is reflected in this year’s conference theme, Creating a better world. Further information can be found at

CAL 09 will be held March 23-25th 2009 at the Hilton Brighton Metropole Hotel. The CAL biennial conference, in association with Computers & Education, and Elsevier, is one of the premier international conferences addressing computers and learning. It has a proud tradition of engendering critical debate on the key issues being tackled by researchers and practitioners in all areas and levels of, amongst other things, Educational Research, Evaluation, Learning Technologies, Teaching, Technology Enhanced Learning, Social Networking, Education Policy and Subject Specific Applications of Technology in Education and Learning.

At CAL 09 there will be three international keynote speakers, paper presentations, symposia and poster presentations. All presentation formats should include some opportunity for further discussion. For more information, visit
