CAERDA Annual International Conference
The CAERDA Annual International Conference serves as an open forum for interdisciplinary discussion and scholarly exchange of ideas among educational researchers and practitioners from around the world. The participants, with or without an ethnic Chinese background, present their current research and draw implications for issues related to CAERDA’s mission.
The conference program primarily consists of presentations selected through a blind peer-review process. In addition, there are invited presentations, symposia, and panel discussions that feature the annual conference theme. Selected high quality presentations will be invited to submit to the New Waves Journal, the CAERDAs peer-reviewed online journal, or an annual feature publication in the CAERDA book series.
The Annual Conference is held immediately before the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association at the same location. This affiliation provides added convenience and enriched experience for conference attendees to participate in the programs of both conferences. The 2013 conference will take place in April 26-27, 2013 at one of the AERA headquarter hotels in San Francisco, California, USA. At the annual conference, CAERDA will also arrange for various special programs, including Invited Sessions and Promising Scholars Sessions (for early career researchers).

Another Upcoming International Conference
This year CAERDA will hold a special international conference during July 8-10, 2013 in Xian, China to provide an additional venue for the vast majority of colleagues in China to exchange research ideas and findings besides our annual conference in the United States. Famed as the cradle of Chinese civilization, Xian not only served as Chinas capital for over 1,000 years (including Zhou, Qin, Han, and Tang dynasties), but also was the starting point of the legendary Silk Road for trade and cultural exchanges between the East and the West. Xian has countless historical and cultural attractions, including the renowned Terracotta Army for the First Emperor. It also has numerous K-12 schools, universities, and research institutions. Indeed, Xian is an ideal place for the CAERDAs 2013 international conference.
