Conference description

The international conference Plagiarism across Europe and Beyond aims to be a forum for sharing best practices and experience with addressing academic integrity issues, namely plagiarism. There will be several invited keynote speakers addresses, as well as presentations of researchers from all around the world, whose papers will pass the review process.

After several publicly well known scandals, plagiarism became an issue in higher education. Many universities are looking for effective policies, electronic detection tools and methods of prevention. Research shows, that there are vast differences in the perception of plagiarism among European countries and even between students and teachers in particular country. Therefore broad discussion, understanding cultural differences and experience exchange among higher education institutions is needed and worth to support.


  • Two more confirmed keynote speakers: Teddi Fishman (director of International Centre for Academic Integrity) and Jindrich Fryc (deputy head of Steering Committee for Educational Policy and Practice of the Council of Europe). Abstracts of their speaches will be available soon.
  • Review of abstracts is finished. Out of 31 abstracts, 7 was accepted and 21 was accepted with changes. In 3 cases we recommend refocusing. No abstract was rejected. We have very interesting set of abstracts and we are looking forward to full papers!
