China National Institute of Education Sciences and the National Research University Higher School of Economics (Moscow) would like to cordially invite you to attend the Second Russia-China Education Research Conference, which will be held in Moscow on September 26–28, 2019.

The integration of ICT in education, which has been underway for several decades, has now reached a new quality level. The transition from a simple replacement of outdated information tools to digital ones, to the full use of the potential of digital technologies for a fundamental renewal of education, has begun. Today, the digital technology supports changes in the content, methodology and organization of educational practices, which would have been impossible without the ICT use. This process is in general defined as the digital transformation of education. It leads to radical changes in the everyday work of educational organizations and significantly improve their operations. Digital transformation promises to ensure equal access to quality education for all, as well as the achievement of the required educational results for each student. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the frontier technological breakthroughs. It is one of the most promising areas for educational research and development.

The 2019 Conference participants will engage in vibrant, multi-format discussions of current trends and opportunities that educational landscapes in Russia and China are facing in today’s technological saturated world.

The conference solicits empirical and theoretical papers particularly (but not exclusively) on the following topics: digital transformation of education and potential of AI to support research and application:

  1. Digital transformation and equal access to quality education
  2. Legal, policy and ethical instruments of digital transformation in education
