The International Conference on Adult Education became a major forum for scientific and legislative exchange, for presenting research results on continuing and adult education. The ICAE is organized once every four years and the first edition, in 2002, dedicated to "Institutions of Adult Education" was followed in 2006 by the "Legislation and Context in Adult Education" which made the subject of the second conference. The Third Conference, in 2010, was centred on a new and essential aspect of nowadays education: "Preparing the Workforce for the Information Society".
