Call for Research Papers


Global Issues in Early Childhood and Children's Rights from different disciplines were discussed at the first annual International Conference which was a great success and will contribute knowledge in the area of early childhood education and children's rights. With the participation of 350 participants from 32 countries and various multidisciplinary scholars it became a prominent event in the province of Gaziantep and the first day of the conference was held at the world's largest mosaic museum called the Zeugma Museum. The conference was adorned with the national and cultural arts. The evening gala dinner included the Gaziantep cuisine accompanied by cultural music for the guests. The second day  95 presentations were presented in 17 different rooms at the  Kizilhisar Campus of Zirve University. Scholars from different countries and disciplines were able to network with each other and collaborate on possible future projects. The third day, guests took a tour of the historical and cultural sites of Gaziantep and were sent home we hope with fond memories.

Our wish is  to all of our guests at the second annual conference at a different location.
