Important CIEE Annual Conference Update

Despite the tumultuous time we in the international education community are experiencing due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) and related travel restrictions, we remain confident that we will be able to host the 2020 CIEE Annual Conference on Study Abroad scheduled in November 2020 in Seoul, South Korea, with the theme: Pathways for Peace: International Education's Role in Harmonizing International Relations.

We believe that by November 2020, the world’s response to the COVID-19 will have been sufficient to ensure we have a safe and productive conference and we’re excited to see you all there.

At the same time, it’s always good to have a Plan B.  Should Seoul not be suitable, our conference team has secured an alternate location for the conference in Atlanta, Georgia, for the same dates should we need to relocate the event.   In this way, we believe we can preserve the opportunity for all presenters and attendees to gather in November 2020 to share updates on both the conference theme and on their individual experiences with responding to the latest global health challenge.

A final decision about the conference location will be made before conference registration opens in early May. We are working closely with the hotel managers in both Seoul and Atlanta to find the best path forward.  We’ll be in touch again, shortly.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at with any questions or concerns you may have.
