ERIC Calendar of Education-Related Conferences, 1991.
Taheri, Belinda, Ed.; Seidman, Paula F., Ed.
The "ERIC Calendar of Education-Related Conferences" was begun in 1970 as a list of the meetings that the ERIC Clearinghouses planned to attend in the coming year. It was a coordinative tool informing the decentralized components of the ERIC network about the conference-related activities of each component and thereby preventing duplication of effort. It was gradually expanded to also include all conferences from which conference papers were solicited. In 1989, with the advent of ACCESS ERIC, it was further expanded to include all education-related conferences. The calendar covering 1991 lists 486 international, national, state, regional, and local events. Events are listed chronologically by date and each entry provides, when available, information such as conference dates, site, sponsor, contact person, registration information, hotel rates, estimated attendance, topics covered, and audience. For ease of use, five indexes are provided: Sponsor, Conference Name, Geographic, Subject, and Participating ERIC Component. The calendar information is updated continuously in an online database currently available via GTE Education Services. The printed calendar is published annually from this online database, usually in December immediately preceding the year covered. (TB)
