Chess has become a mandatory subject in the primary schools of Armenia since 2011. Armenia was the first country in the world that embarked on the realization of such a project.

During these three years significant work has been accomplished, such as psychological research to assess the effectiveness of teaching chess and the influence of chess as a school subject on the development of children’s logic, creative thinking, intellect and other qualities.

Thus, this Conference will be an excellent occasion for participants and attendees to share experience and best practices to promote further development and to enhance the role and importance of Chess in educational systems.

During the Conference, Panel Discussions in different thematic directions (organizational, methodological, psychological, sociological) will take place as well.
