The 2016 ECHA Conference will be in Vienna between 2 and 5 March (http://echa2016.info). The Conference has the major topics of migration and intercultural exchange. However, ALL contributions related to gifted education or talent support are most welcome! The speakers and registered contributors come from different fields (science, research and practice) and they also vary in their own cultural environment representing almost all European countries, USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Australia – and the list of countries is growing each day. Registration for ECHA members has a special discount and is available here. You may apply for an ECHA membership here.

Are you interested in presenting your own latest work, research or project at the conference? Abstract forms can be downloaded from here and should be sent to this email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Please note that the deadline of the submission of abstracts was extended until October 31st!


The conference venue is located in the beautiful historical city center of Vienna and is just a minute walk away from St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Special arrangements with hotels in this area are made, so that conference participants are able to spend some budget-friendly days in Vienna (find more information about the accommodation online at:). Even though the conference program is fully booked with lectures, presentations, workshops, a river cruise on the Danube and a rich social program, Vienna offers a huge amount of cultural activities which we can highly recommend. On the conference website you can find more information about how to book, for example, a special tour through the impressive castle of Schönbrunn or a trip to the nearby cities Prague, Budapest and Bratislava. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Vienna!
