Extended Deadline: January 27, 2012
Motivation in all Spheres of Life
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the International Conference on Motivation 2012. The Conference is jointly organized by the DIPF, EARLI SIG 8 and Goethe University Frankfurt.
The first meetings on motivation in Europe were called the Workshop in Achievement and Task Motivation. In an effort to acknowledge these roots we wish to explicitly address the wide range of human domains for which motivation are important. We hope that the 2012 ICM conference will bring together all researchers who are interested in better understanding human motivation e.g. from learning, school, sport, occupational, developmental, and social psychology.
Following the tradition established in Landau (2006) and continued in Turku (2008) and Porto (2010), the ICM 2012 will be preceded by a Summer School for young researchers interested in topics related to motivation and emotion.
Invited keynote speakers at the International Conference on Motivation 2012 are:
Judith Harackiewicz, University of Wisconsin – Madison, USA
Mimi Bong, Korea University, Korea
Peter Gollwitzer, University of Konstanz, Germany & New York University, USA
The Conference offers symposia and individual paper sessions as well as poster sessions. The official language of the Conference is English.
We look forward to welcome you in Frankfurt am Main, Germany!
The EARLI Special Interest Group 8 “Motivation and Emotion”
The mission of the Motivation and Emotion SIG is to promote research and theory on the person and situation influences on the direction, intensity, quality and persistence of human behavior related to learning and instruction. SIG activities include support of the International Conference on Motivation (ICM) that is held in years between the EARLI Biennial Conferences. The ICM includes a pre-conference Summer School at which graduate students have the opportunity to meet and work with prominent motivation researchers. The SIG also confers Student Research Excellence Awards at each EARLI conference to graduate students whose presentations are judged especially meritorious.
DIPF – Knowledge on Education
The German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) is an institute belonging to the Leibniz Association that delivers science and research services to science, practice, politics and administration in the field of education. The institute’s work is determined by two closely interlinked priority areas, i.e. educational information and educational research.
On the one hand, the DIPF thus conducts educational research and it evaluates the education system and at the same time, it provides general information in education. By working in both of these areas and delivering its knowledge in education, the DIPF contributes to improving educational quality and the conditions of successful education.
EARLI exists to support and promote an active research culture in the field of learning and instruction. EARLI enables about 2000 members from 40 different countries to engage in critical dialogue. They systematically exchange and discuss ideas on instructional and educational research, as well as on research on industrial training. For these scholars, from all parts of Europe and many parts of the world, EARLI provides a platform to contribute to current debates. Through its networks, activities and the publication of journals and book series, EARLI promotes both international and interdisciplinary cooperation. Find more information on http://www.earli.org/.
