Dear Colleagues,
We have received requests for an extension to the deadline for submission of abstracts for the sixth International Conference on Value and Virtue in Practice-Based Research, to be held at York St John University, York, UK, onTuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 July 2016.   It has been decided to extend the deadline to FRIDAY 22 APRIL 2016
You can see further information on the web pages at  The conference is now well established in the international educational research community, with a reputation for high quality research and scholarship within a dynamic, supportive and kindly atmosphere that encourages individuals to explore their intellectual potentials while protecting their integrity.  York St John University is a vibrant part of the historic City of York: the City Centre and the wonderful York Minster are a five minute walk from the University.   
A pre-conference interactive workshop is also offered on Monday 4 July, from 4.15–6.00pm on 'Writing Practice-Based Research'. The workshop is free of charge to conference attendees, but spaces are limited so an early booking is advised.  
The 2016 conference theme is 'Virtuous Practices for a Worldwide Conversation'. You are invited to submit an abstract for a presentation that enables you to explain how you are engaging in what might count as virtuous practices in your workplace, wherever it may be, and how those practices might inform a worldwide conversation, however you construe it.  Presentations may take the form of papers, workshops, poster sessions, performance, or round table discussions.
Abstracts should be approximately 300 words, to include references.  This is an indicative number of words: please judge how best to communicate what you wish to say. 
Abstracts should be sent to Pauline Milner at by 22 April 2016 and should use the template to be found on the web pages. If you have any questions, please also feel free to drop me a line at
Also to note that we aim to publish work from the conference in a variety of forms. You can download our first set of proceedings from; the book is also available for purchase in hard copy.
