This year’s ECER conference was a success for the network. We had a record number of proposals submitted, and could select high quality proposals for an almost full program - only the final session had no network presentations. This had the positive effect of raising the general quality of the network's program. To facilitate conference participation for new voices, the network however also reserves presentation slots on other grounds than quality only, for example authors from underrepresented nations or emerging researchers. Several new researchers presented promising research within the network's area, and showed interest in returning to the network. We also saw an increased number of participants coming to the network's sessions. The network launched a special call for ECER 2018. A good amount of proposals were sent in, and papers for two sessions were selected to be presented within the special call. Two joint sessions with other networks were organised. These were a good match and interesting, but less attended than other sessions. The network meeting decided that the network should be restrictive with joint sessions. Our network is small and since we think that the network's audience is too limited to split up in parallel sessions, presentation slots need to be reserved for network research. Although we value the connections made through joint sessions, if the number of proposals submitted to the network stays at the high number we saw this year, joint sessions need to be limited. The network organised its very first network dinner. A social activity has been requested by network members, and about 25 persons attended the appreciated dinner.
