welcome to the 45th sefi annual conference in azores
SEFI invites you to participate in its 45th Annual Conference, organised by the Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto (ISEP), in Azores (Portugal). SEFI Annual Conferences have been organised in different parts of Europe and represent a unique opportunity for the members of SEFI and all those interested by or involved in engineering education and research to exchange views and opinions, to establish new contacts with peers and other higher Engineering Education stakeholders. The themes of the conferences reflect the objectives of the Society and the priorities identified by its members. In 2016 the conference was held in Tampere on the theme of “Engineering Education on Top of the World: Industry-University Cooperation”, and in 2018, it will be organised by DTU in Copenhagen (Denmark) on “Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship for EE Excellence“.
We invite you to join us in 2017 in Terceira Island (Azores) to cooperate on “Education Excellence for Sustainability”, a theme that is of paramount importance for the Azores Islands a world reference on the successful sustainability development aligned with the wonderful landscape values. The strategical placement in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is also an opportunity to bridge with the North American colleagues that will have a pre SEFI conference collocated event.
We look forward for contributions under the following sub-themes:
We also welcome student contributions and workshops proposals.
For the first time, an ASEE Global Colloquium will be preceding the SEFI conference that will allow the increase of networking possibilities beyond the Atlantic Ocean.
Also opportunities are given to participate in solving local engineering problems. Some problems will be presented in loco but we encourage participants to research and propose solutions for existing challenges in engineering and engineering education in Azores.
The submission of abstracts is now open until 19 March 2017 - extended until 1 April 2017 - according to the instructions to authors.
