What to expect from ACE sessions and workshops

at EAIE annual conferences?

The following conference sessions are "typical ACE":

   - "News of the recognition field"  - at each conference the ACE opening session 
     provides an overview of the developments in recognition and admission  over the
     last year

   - Dissemination of the recently adopted international legislation/ practices.
     The national recognition/information centres (ENIC/NARIC centres of each country) cooperate
     at European level. They provide each other the necessary information n own educational
     system but they also draft new international legislation in the field of recognition.
     ACE track at EAIE conference is an excellent meeting place where the ENIC and NARIC
     networks disseminate the information regarding the new international developments to
     admissions officers/credential evaluators working at the universities.

    - Hands-on experiences in recognition/ admissions practices.  
      At this type of ACE sessions (and also at ACE pre-conference workshops) practical
      issues are  discussed, e.g.: how to carry out credential evaluation, how to run admissions
      office, how to indicate forgeries and many others.

    - Sessions on country educational systems.
      In order to promote better mutual recognition of credentials (degrees, diplomas, credits etc.). 
      ACE is interested to stimulate sessions at EAIE conferences providing thorough explanation
      of national educational systems so that this information can be used at practical evaluation of
      the credentials awarded in the country in question.
      "Country sessions" are often held also by other professional sections of the EAIE.  ACE board
      has formulated "Guidelines for organisers of "country sessions",  which provide a list of
      issues that should be covered at a "country session" in order to ensure that the structure of the
      educational system of the country in question is fully understood by other countries' nationals.
