Two Simon Fraser University Surrey students are getting ready to fly to the United Arab Emirates for a student-organized e-learning conference in February.

The student-organized con-ference, e-ducation without borders, is being held for the second time. Michael Kiktavy and Marie-Claude Lavoie have been recognized recently for other accomplishments: Kiktavy was a semi-finalist in the annual as prime minister essay contest last year; Lavoie was on a team that developed a prototype student website for the provincial ministry of advanced education for which she and her partners were honoured by minister Shirley Bond.

Kiktavy has also been selected to present a paper at the conference. His paper, one of the top 16 to be presented, is called e-ducation needs global infrastructure.

The conference first, held in 2001, is organized by students at Abu Dhabi's Higher Colleges of Technology to provide students with first-hand experience in organizing complex events while learning about the impact of e-learning on the global educational community.
