Bundling some things I posted elsewhere, exploring


NB: this is a copy of the Conferences page of, presently at Its aim is to see if it would be possible to transfer its content to a  …/conferences page, with the present …/i-links page as a subpage.

To list your educational conference, post a request in the comment box below or email Claude Almansi at Provide a URL, and we’ll create a link to it.

Beta: online conferences / seminars

There are  great series of online conferences and seminars we would like to feature here too. In the case of a regular series – like e.g.  The Future of Education seminars coordinated by Steve Hargadon – it might probably be more userfriendly to just indicate the link to their listings in this first part of the page. Whatever the final form, please feel free to indicate your online events as explained above for the face-to-face conferences.

Personalized conference calendars with Lanyrd

This listing is made of your indications, of indications gathered from mailing-lists, social networks etc.,  and  also with Lanyrd. Lanyrd is a twitter-based application, and if you sign in to it with your twitter account, you will see which conferences your twitter contacts are attending in the near future. If you do not have a twitter account, or do not wish to share its data with an external application for security reasons, you can still browse and search Lanyrd for conferences you might be interested in, also by place or by topic.
