2018 will mark the second annual CARE conference, a newly established annual research conference sponsored by the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) College of Education.  This event brings together scholars from around the U.S. and abroad in order to present scholarship related to a variety of contexts, including theory, practice, empirical research, and conceptual advancement.  All presentations will address subjects specifically related to education, broadly defined, such as P-12 teacher education, higher education, educational psychology, adult education, special education, school counselling, school psychology, school climate, policy, TESL, literacy, online learning, educational technology, and others.

CARE is a juried, national research conference, meaning that presentation proposals undergo peer-review prior to potential acceptance for presentation.  CARE is a robust conference with ample opportunities to exchange theoretical ideas, share research results, help advance practice, make collaborative connections, and learn from one another’s scholarship

Invitation to submit

CARE invite submissions for potential presentation at this year’s conference from a broad range of topics related to education.  Strands may include empirical or theoretical scholarship as well as research methodology evaluation, meta-analyses, critical literature reviews, and topics related to applied practice, including action research, that are grounded in scholarship.  Where possible, topics will be grouped together for presentation within similar tracks.

Call for Papers

Submit a proposal that includes a title, an abstract of not more than 150 words, and a summary that does not exceed more than 600 words.  If the proposal is accepted for presentation, then the title and abstract will be included in the conference programme.

Proposal Submission Deadline is November 19, 2017. Papers will undergo juried review on a rolling basis, with prompt notifications of acceptance/rejection so that presenters can make early and economical travel arrangements.

All presented papers are eligible for submission to the Journal of Behavioral and Social Sciences (JBSS) (www.jbssjournal.org) and all submitted papers will be peer-reviewed for potential publication.


The conference will be held at The Flamingo Hotel which is located in the centre of the Vegas strip, directly across the street from Caesar’s Palace.  Conference attenders are encouraged to stay at the hotel, as CARE have secured a very low rate of $59 per night (plus tax & fees) on Sunday, February 25th through Wednesday, February 28th.  The Flamingo Hotel is in walking distance of the major Las Vegas attractions.
