Conference of the Americas on International Education

The Conference of the Americas on International Education (CAIE) is an essential forum for stakeholders in Higher Education that fosters fruitful dialogues and debates, aiming to contribute to the internationalization and quality of Higher Education. The CAIE allows decision makers and professionals to exchange and examine various public policies, as well as diverse models, paradigms, consolidated best practices, challenges and the latest trends emerging from the international education sector, while generating meaningful contacts for institutional collaboration. The previous CAIE editions: Canada-2010, Brazil-2012 and Mexico-2013 counted with the participation of 2316 delegates from 52 countries and have become a common space that promotes the enhancement of academic collaboration in the continent.
