  1. Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

    Is it possible to tell me when the next conference of the London Chess Classic will be scheduled (if the date is already known). Last year (I mean 2014) , I knew it too late and I couldn’t attend the conference anymore.

    Although I am a linguïst (I did scientific research on language acquisition, I teach Dutch at university level (to translators) and I am a translator / interpreter / language coach myself), chess is playing an increasingly important part in my professional activities. One day in a week, I teach chess in a primary school (in Dutch to French speaking children (5 – 12 years)), since 3 years, I teach chess in a teacher training institute and I give lectures on a regular basis (for several chess federations and schools) about chess in schools, coaching, etc.

    Therefore, I am very interested in attending conferences and events on the subject ‘chess in schools’ and ‘chess and education’ and in learning more about the several aspects of those items.

    Is it possible to register my email address in your database, so that I can be informed about the initiatives you take in this respect?

    In the meantime, I wish you a very fine 2015!

    Best regards,

    Philippe Vukojevic

    1. Dear Philippe

      Thank you for your enquiry.
      The next Chess and Education Conference will be on 5&6 December 2015 at London Hilton Olympia. The theme will be Chess and Society.
      We will be sending out details later.
