All EiCC Presentations at CIES – Last Updated: February 27, 2017

We enjoyed seeing you in Atlanta at the CIES Annual Conference and thank you for attending our sessions, joining us at our reception, and stopping by at our exhibit booth.

Like last year, this Web page will still be updated, post-CIES, to host presentation slides and other news pertaining to CIES Education in Crisis and Conflict (EiCC).

The slider above features all the ECCN panels and presentations and, by clicking, you will find detailed information on each.

We have also compiled a comprehensive list of all EiCC sessions at CIES. The list features all the important information for each session, is organized by date, and linked to the official CIES program. We hope you find it a convenient one-stop shop to get an overview of all the daily sessions on EiCC. The list will be updated regularly, and if we missed a presentation, please let us know at usaideccn@edc.org and we will be glad to add it.


The ECCN Support Team at Booth 11-13: Find out more about the network, upcoming projects and how you can get involved.

In the Exhibit Hall, ECCN partnered with INEE, the Journal on Education in Emergencies (JEiE), and the CIES Education Conflict and Emergencies SIG. We appreciated the many EiCC flyers you contributed and that we were able to display for you. We had many CIES attendees stop by and take note of all the work going on in EiCC.
