Bridging National and Global Perspectives

3 August 2021, 12:00 AM - 8 August 2021, 11:59 PM

Montreal, Quebec, Canada


                Welcome to the ICCEES 10th World Congress (Montréal, 2021) website!








                    Update from the Organising Committee - November 19, 2020


                                            Announcement: Virtual Congress


Considering the global pandemic and its impact on international travel, and after consulting with ICCEES and with registered participants, the Organizing Committee announces that the ICCEES 10th World Congress 2021 will be a virtual event.

We are working hard to ensure a stimulating, enriching World Congress experience for all participants. The virtual Congress will comprise lively, interactive panels, roundtables, and keynote events. In addition to the main program, participants will have diverse opportunities for virtual connections, informal discussions, and consultations. Other activities will include:

                                                       • Film Screenings

                                                           • Art Exhibit

                                                         • Exhibitor Fair

And workshops on: Academic Publishing, Academic Job Search, Practical Applications of Digital Archival Collections – and much more.

The shift to a virtual format presents other significant benefits. Many people who previously could not consider participating because of travel costs can now be part of the World Congress. It will also be much easier to join with colleagues worldwide in creating strong panel and roundtable proposals. We encourage everyone to take full advantage of this wider accessibility.

We will release more information concerning new registration prices and reimbursements for registered participants in the coming weeks. Your patience is much appreciated.

We would also like to remind you that the New Call for Proposals is open (see below for more details) and we look forward to your panel, roundtable and individual paper proposals!


The Organising Committee of the 10th ICCEES World Congress (August 3-8, 2021) is delighted to reopen the Call for Submissions portal. The deadline is February 1, 2021.

If you previously submitted a proposal that was accepted and maintained registration, we will be in touch with you shortly.
