The 2014 ACA Annual Conference will take place in Bordeaux, from 15 to 17 June. It will be co-organised by the Agence Europe-Education-Formation (2e2f) and it is expected to draw an audience of 300+ 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 on a global scale. 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 eight workshops, however, will be held in French.
Presenters at an ACA Annual Conference are chosen exclusively from a small group of internationally reputed experts from the fields of higher education research and higher education policy. Their names and short bios can be found on the ACA This conference will provide food for thought, but also culinary and touristic delights. Conference dinner will be held in a Bordeaux vineyard. Participants 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. Traditionally, participants will have the afternoon before the opening of the conference to explore the host city. It will be an excellent opportunity to 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.
