As part of the London Chess Classic at Olympia, a two-day conference is taking place next weekend, with a range of speakers (mainly from foreign countries) with the snappy title ‘Successes and Challenges – Improving School Chess Practice, Research and Strategy’. The conference is organised by CSC (Chess in Schools and Communities).
According to the published blurb, the first day, 7 December, will be of special interest to teachers and researchers, while the second day, 8 December, with its focus on organisational and strategic questions, is tailor-made for project leaders and chess federations. Included amongst the speakers are representatives from the Swedish Chess Federation, the Judit Polgár Foundation and the University of Cambridge
The cost is £125 for the whole conference, or £75 if you wish to attend on one day only.
