ACA Annual Conference 2014: hurry up, it’s time

  In less than three weeks, the ACA Annual Conference will begin.

Registrations close on 6 June so if you want to attend the event, we suggest you hurry up and register now. 

The 2014 ACA Annual Conference will take place in Bordeaux, from 15 to 17 June. Co-organised by the Agence Europe-Education-Formation France (2e2f) and hosted by the new Université de Bordeaux, it is expected to draw a big audience from Europe and elsewhere in the world.  The conference bears the title Europe in the world. Higher education trends across the globe. It has three main foci. 

  • First, it will assess the relative attractiveness of European higher education in a global comparison. 
  • Second, it will address present and future key issues of European and global higher education. 
  • Third, the event will analyse recent trends in higher education in major countries and regions around the world and present state-of-the-art partnerships between universities in these regions and countries and in Europe.  

The conference language will be English. Two of overall seven workshops, however, will be held in French.

The ACA Annual Conference 2014 boasts an impressive number of top-notch experts. As usual, our selection policy for speakers followed one simple principle: only the best.

The conference will provide food for thought, but also culinary and touristic delights. Our conference dinner will be held in a Bordeaux vineyard. We will also be received in the town hall of Bordeaux, by the newly re-elected city's mayor and former French Prime Minister Alain Juppé. Finally, we stick to our tradition to explore the host city in the afternoon before the opening of the conference.  There, you will find out why the city is rightly called the "Pearl of Aquitaine" and why the historic part of the city figures on the UNESCO World Heritage List as "an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble" of the 18th century. Bordeaux is lovely at all times of the year. But it is particularly ravishing in June.
