This document provides papers presented at a conference that focused on the ways in which definitions of quality are translated into practice in early childhood education and on ways to assess the quality of practice. The conference included four keynote lectures, presentation of six papers, and four symposia. The lectures, which are not included in this document, covered topics relevant to early childhood education. The papers reviewed research projects, described programs to improve the quality of early childhood education, or outlined educational principles. Each symposium addressed one of four questions: (1) How does research on quality inform policy and practice? (2) How is quality implemented in the classroom? (3) How is quality maintained and monitored? and (4) How does research inform teacher education and development? A total of 16 papers were presented in the symposia. With most of the papers, a reference list or bibliography is included. A list of the more than 150 delegates from 23 countries who attended the conference is appended. (BC)
