    Dear organizers,

    I am an artist and a teacher at the University of Granada, in Spain. I have been researching on the use of contemporary art in primary and secondary education and I would like to know whether you accept papers for the Conference and when is the deadline to submit as participants.

    Kind regards,

    Carmen Gonzalez
