Join us on 30th November and 1st December

Please save the date of the next London Chess Conference. Our seventh edition will again coincide with the start of the London Chess Classic on the weekend of 30th November and 1st December 2019. The Irish Cultural Centre in Hammersmith proved to be a popular venue last time and so we will be there again. The theme this year is the topical – “Chess and Female Empowerment”. More information on this will follow soon.

We will also continue our focus on chess in education with parallel streams of presentations, workshops and debates. We are also planning side-events including displays and an exhibition. In the week which follows, 2nd-6th there will be professional training courses certificated by the European Chess Union on Teaching Chess in Primary Schools and on Teaching Mathematics through Games on the ChessBoard.

We are delighted to announce that the Conference is being sponsored by the World Chess Federation (FIDE), the European Chess Union (ECU), Chess in Schools and Communities (CSC) and the English Chess Federation (ECF).

Please contact us if you want to suggest a workshop session or debate. If you want to give a presentation please send a title and summary (max. 100 words) by 15 September latest to conference@chessplus.net
