The situation related to the globally spread COVID19 virus, which the World Health Organization declared a pandemic, is closely monitored. As the Organizing Committee, until the last moment, we have been endeavouring to hold the congress at the time and place announced before. However, as a result of the recent developments and measures taken by governments, it became obvious that it is impossible to hold the congress face to face, as planned.
In this context, ERPA 2020 Organizing Committee has decided to;
1) To organise the congress as online remote presentations,
2) To change status of participants who registered to make oral - interactive poster presentations into online remote presentations,
3) To refund the fee difference arising from this change to the participants who registered and paid their fees for oral - interactive poster presentation and to the participants who registered and paid as a listener.
4) To inform, via e-mail as soon as possible, the participants on how to prepare and send online remote presentations,
5) To deliver the participation certificates to the participants by e-mail and / or mail for online remote presentations,
6) Full texts of papers presented at ERPA International Education Congresses 2020 via online remote presentation,
a) To publish abstracts books and full-text-papers books as e-books with ISBNs,
b) To publish in an ERIC index scanned journal "International Journal of Psychology and Educational Studies" as a special issue on the authors’ request and with the approval of the congress organizing committee provided that they pass through the referee processes and the papers are edited within the framework of publication and, writing and publishing rules of the journal.
c) To provide the opportunity to publish the as an article in the journal scanned by ERIC and SCOPUS indexes “Participatory Educational Research (PER)” or in other journals supporting the congress; provided that they are edited within the framework of the publication and writing rules of the journals and that they pass the referee processes,
7) To announce the congress program later together with the web address where the congress will be broadcast live between 10-12 April 2020, how the participants and the audience will participate after all the arrangements have been done.
Thank you for your understanding and wish all of you healthy days.
