As you may already be aware, the QS-MAPLE 2019 (Middle East and Africa Professional Leaders in Education) conference will convene from 25th – 27th February 2018 in Saudi Arabia. This prestigious conference attracts senior higher education academics and administrators from across the Middle East, Africa and the world. The mission of QS-MAPLE is “to provide a forum that promotes the development of higher education in the Middle East and Africa in the global context that stimulates international partnership and to support the processes of institutional evaluation and upgrading that will lead to greater worldwide recognition of Middle Eastern and African universities.”
QS-MAPLE offers the ideal platform for actively engaging university leaders, academics and senior administrators to contribute to the conference programme by sharing their experiences, providing case studies and taking part in constructive debate about the internationalisation of students, faculty and the curriculum.
As chair of the QS-MAPLE International Academic Conference Committee, I would like to invite you to submit your proposal for a session at the 2019 conference. The proposal should take the form of an abstract not exceeding 150 words and should be submitted with a 150-word personal profile online by 30th September 2018. There is a user guide available on the same page to help you navigate through our new Proposal Submission System.
The QS-MAPLE 2019 conference will be co-hosted by Effat University, together with our Strategic Partner - King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies.
The QS-MAPLE 2019 conference will be organized around five tracks:
Track 1: Resources and Financing for Research
Track 2: Language Barriers and Research Culture
Track 3: Research Strategy and Evaluation
Track 4: Research Education
Track 5: Science for the Sustainable Development Goals
The QS-MAPLE International Academic Advisory Committee and I look forward to reviewing your proposals and to meeting you in Saudi Arabia in February 2019!
