Engineering Education

A Small Symposium on “Engineering Education”
as part of the Athens International Symposium on Education and Research
20-23 November 2020, Athens, Greece
Organized by the Engineering & Architecture Division and the Education Unit of ATINER
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Technology & Engineering & the Athens Journal of Education

The Engineering & Architecture Division and the Education Unit of ATINER are organizing a Small Symposium on “Engineering Education” as part of the Athens International Symposium on Education and Research, 20-23 November 2020, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Technology & Engineering & the Athens Journal of Education.

The aim of this symposium is to bring together academics and researchers of all areas of engineering and engineering education such as:  chemical and biomolecular engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, mining and metallurgical engineering, rural and surveying engineering, and interdisciplinary areas such as aerospace engineering, agricultural engineering, applied engineering, biological engineering, biomedical engineering, building engineering, geotechnical engineering, energy (petroleum) engineering, hydraulic and maritime engineering, manufacturing engineering, industrial engineering, nuclear engineering, and railway engineering. You may participate as presenter of one paper or observer. 

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, including 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, a day trip to Delphi, and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

Please submit an abstract (by email only) to: atiner@atiner.gr, using the abstract submission form, by 20 July 2020 to:

Abstracts should include the following details: Title of Paper, Full Name (s), Affiliation, Current Position, an email address, and at least 3 keywords that best describe the subject of your submission. Decisions are reached within 4 weeks.

If you want to participate without presenting a paper, i.e. organize a stream, chair a session, review papers to be included in the conference proceedings or books, contribute to the editing of a book, or any other contribution, please send an email (president@atiner.gr to Dr. Gregory T. Papanikos, President, ATINER & Honorary Professor, University of Stirling, UK.

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.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to: info@atiner.gr.
