Conferences are well-known devices for gathering a community together, both for the formalized and the informal exchanges they promote. IEREK annually plans and organizes numerous conferences which try to bring together academics and policymakers. Very reputable universities become partners to these conferences, and outstanding key speakers are invited to contribute to their success.
Organizing a conference involves several phases:
– Creating an organizing structure – putting together the group of people who are going to organize and run the conference, and planning the ways they will work together.
– Planning the conference.
– Publicizing the conference and recruiting and registering participants.
– Running the conference.
– Evaluating the conference and the conference-organizing process.
