The Conference that will take place in the University of Lisbon by September 14-16 is organized by Portuguese Institute for Career Guidance and Counselling (IOP) in cooperation with IAEVG Board, other Portuguese academic institutions, public services and associations with relevant activity in Guidance, all together represented in the Executive Committee. The Conference also counts with the support of relevant personalities in the field, at the national and international level, that accepted to integrate the Scientific Committee.
The general theme of the Conference - Careers in Context: New Challenges and Tasks for Guidance and Counselling - seeks the characterization of the new problems and of the new challenges in the beginning of the XXI century and the identification of guidelines for the intervention renewed in the field. This theme will be approached in a strong Scientific Program that integrates Conferences, Symposia and an Interdisciplinary Debate where outstanding international experts will intervene.
