FIE website now available: Submit an Abstract to the 2021 Frontiers in Education Conference — February 15, 2021 deadline

Frontiers in Education Conference

Abstract submission is now open for the 2021 Frontiers in Education Conference, scheduled for October 13-16 in Lincoln, Nebraska.

FIE welcomes Full Papers up to eight-pages and Work-in-Progress Papers up to four-pages that address the broad tracks of (1) innovative practice, (2) research-to-practice, and (3) research. Work-in-progress papers are typically in frontier areas where it is understood the work is in an early or intermediate stage and authors are seeking feedback from the community. Further, FIE welcomes proposals for panels, workshops, and special sessions in order to disseminate scholarly efforts in non-traditional ways.

We encourage authors to consider the FIE 2021 conference theme of “Envisioning Convergence in Engineering Education.” Convergence can be defined as integrating knowledge and techniques from multiple disciplines and from both academia and the workforce while also providing students the opportunity to develop their professional skills to competently address societal opportunities and challenges, such as those related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Specific topics of relevance include incorporating convergence into programs, curricula, and continuing education; integrating team science into convergence education; teaching convergence and responsible science via research, and using technologies to advance convergence in education and training.

The abstract submission deadline is February 15, 2021. Go to to find out more and link to the abstract submission site. Note: FIE 2021 is scheduled to be an in-person meeting. If we cannot meet physically, the conference will be held virtually, and all finalized papers will still be published.
