EES 2014 Successfully Accomplished.

The third conference in the row of the European Evaluation Society (EES) was recently successfully organized by C-IN. After being held in Prague and Helsinki, the 11th EES Biennial Conference took place in Dublin, Ireland from the 1st-3rd of October with its pre-conference workshops on the 29th and 30th of September.

"Evaluation for an Equitable Society: Independence, Partnership, Participation" was the theme of this year's conference that was opened by H.E Brendan Howlin, Ireland's Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, followed by the different daily key note speakers of the conference: Marco Segone, Director of Evaluation at UN Women, Michael Scriven, a professor of psychology at Claremont Graduate University and co-director of the Claremont Evaluation Center; and Helen Simons, Professor of Evaluation and Education at the University of Southampton, UK with Jennifer Greene, a professor in the Department of Educational Psychology in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on the last day of the conference.

748 registered evaluators from 76 countries came to Dublin to participate in the conference and engage in reflection and debate about the role of evaluation in a changing world. This year, not only the attendance but also the conference programme, which included 361 accepted abstracts, 151 sessions and 14 workshops was enormously successful and reached record numbers in the history of the EES Conferences. For the first time, the conference Mobile Application 'Elepocket' was used,. Also with 1436 tweets from 192 contributors, 119 898 accounts were reached during 9 days of the conference.

C-IN has been providing the EES full CorePCO services and Association Management Services on a long term basis since 2009. C-IN highly values this long term partnership and the complexity of services delivered to EES.
