BERA Conference 2014


Registration is now open!

Please visit the dedicated conference website: for full information on the conference including registration.

We have had a record number of abstract submissions this year, including symposia. We would like to thank everyone that helped to review the submissions. The standard of the submissions were also much higher than previous years, which has pushed the average grade for acceptance higher. As there is only a limited amount of time and space in the conference, this has led to a higher number of rejections. Symposia have scored significantly higher on average than individual papers, so we encourage you for future years to work collaboratively to submit papers. You will soon be notified of the outcome of your paper, and we look forward to welcoming you to the BERA 2014 conference.

In 2014 the BERA conference is taking place at the Institute of Education, University of London. Registration for 2014 is now open.

Dr Kalwant Bhopal, University of Southampton
