    I am interested in perhaps making a presentation at the 18th European Conference on Reading. Could you send me information regarding the deadline for conference proposals and if it isn’t too late the conference proposal forms?
    Also, I would like advance information concerning where and when your 19th and 20th European IRA Conferences on Reading will be held.
    Thank you for your assistance.
    I am a new IRA Board of Directors member and I am very interested in presenting at and attending your conferences. Thank you in advance for any information and help you can provide.
    Sincerely and with best wishes,
    Rona Flippo

      Greetings from Canada,
      I echo Rona’s questions and comments – in terms of planning ahead to attend (and possibly present)at the conference in Sweden, 2013, it really would be helpful to have further information as soon as possible… thank you!

        Hi, I am a Canadian teacher interested in attending the IDEC conference in Sweden. In order to get funding, I need to make application to my school board as soon as possible. I cannot do that without information on the conference sessions. I see that the deadline for early registration is in a few days. If I don’t get my application and registration in I will miss the early registration. Could you please give me some information on the sessions. I last heard they would be up on the website the end of April, but am still not seeing them.
