18-21 May 2020, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Education
The Education Unit of ATINER will hold a Small Symposium on “Student Absenteeism”, 18-21 May 2020, Athens, Greece as part of the 22nd Annual International Conference on Education sponsored by the Athens Journal of Education.
The aim of this symposium is to share research on student absenteeism at primary and secondary school levels. The symposium will help conference attendees gain an understanding of the key issues related to causes of absenteeism and interventions to increase student attendance in schools. The symposium will include research using various research methods (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, mixed-methods research approaches) to study student absenteeism. You may participate as presenter of one paper or observer.
Fee structure information is available on https://www.atiner.gr/fees.
Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycenae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, an one-day visit to Delphi and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

The association was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.
The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER. Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).
Academically, the Association is organized into 6 Divisions, 37 Units and 6 Centers. Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.
