About The Conference

The 24th ICDE World Conference will be hosted by Universitas Terbuka in Indonesia on 2-5 October 2011. This conference will be a forum for participants from all over the world and distinguished experts to share and learn from each other on how to plan, develop and better manage ODL programs. Since there is a wide range of content in ODL programs in participating institutions/countries which cover all of those three components, directly or indirectly it will help promote the new way of thinking about a future in which environmental, societal, and economic considerations are balanced in the pursuit of development and improved quality of life.

The main conference will be held over two days at Westin Hotel, Nusa Dua, Bali and will consist of keynotes speeches as well as plenary and parallel sessions.
