Dear Colleague:


Have you recently updated the courses that you teach?  Have you established new degree or certificate programs?  Have you created new courses or course modules, or designed innovative programs to involve students in your research, or otherwise worked on the integration of research and education?  Would you like to disseminate and publicize these and other innovations, share experiences and lessons learned, and further enhance innovation and productivity of your work through a dialog with members of the international peer community? 


If so, please consider submitting an article to an upcoming iNEER Special Volume.  Each special volume is a hardcover, archival book published annually by the iNEER Network.  All articles are subject to rigorous peer review.  The next book will be the 2007 Special Volume entitled: “Innovations 2007: World Innovations in Engineering Education and Research.”  Many of you and/or your colleagues in engineering and allied disciplines have published their work in past iNEER Special Volumes; see:

Focused on promoting further advances in education and research worldwide through information and resource sharing, the International Network for Engineering Education and Research (“iNEER Network”) is a volunteer, professional organization formed recently by the world community in engineering and allied fields to foster international cooperation.  The widening iNEER network of educators and researchers currently covers 98 countries, and is linked through the iNEER website (, archival publications, e-mails, conferences, workshops, and retreats.  The most recent event of the iNEER Network was held a little more than two weeks ago, in July 2006 in San Juan, Puerto Rico (  Past conferences have been held in Poland, Brazil, Czech Republic, UK, Norway, Taiwan, and USA.  Next year we will meet in Portugal and Australia.  Future conferences are scheduled for Portugal, Hungary, Canada, and Australia.  We hope you will be able to join us in one of these conferences; we will send you the details.


Papers for iNEER Special Volumes are accepted throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your paper at anytime; however, if you wish to have your articles reviewed for the 2007 book, we would appreciate your articles at an early date, preferably by October 15, 2006.  Before submitting your articles, please be sure to refer to paper guidelines posted on the first link given above.
