The theme for The 2019 Biennial Conference of the International Research Association for Talent Development and Excellence (IRATDE) is “Nurturing Potentials into Full Bloom and into Excellence.” The conference will include keynote speeches, invited symposia, oral presentations, poster presentations, an exhibition, school visits, pre-conference workshops, and a post conference tour. Participants will be encouraged to submit abstracts presenting their latest research, works in, or experiences with talent development and excellence.

The IRATDE invites researchers, academicians, professionals, policy makers, industry experts, and members from professional bodies to submit abstracts of their papers to be eligible to present at the conference. Opportunities to partake in the conference as poster and oral presenters are also available for interested participants.

The conference will feature an innovative poster-based presentation format in which each presenter prepares a poster and an accompanying 5-minute talk that will be presented to a seated audience during a thematically organized session. The conference will also offer longer, 15-minute oral presentations organized into thematic sessions.
