PT providers, Accreditation Bodies, PT participants and other interested in the topics of the conference are invited to register for
• up to four training sessions, which will take place on 9 October 2017 and
• the workshop, which will run from 10 to 12 October 2017.
Three days of the workshop will be devoted to invited lectures, short communications, poster sessions and working group discussions. 
As in previous workshops, proposed abstracts will be subjected to approval by the scientific committee and amended where necessary to improve English expression. Invited lectures and accepted communications/posters will be considered for publication as full papers as a topical focus in an issue of Accreditation and Quality Assurance (Springer Verlag), subject to peer-review.


The conference will be held in Portorož, Slovenia. Portorož has a sheltered position in the Piran Bay. The place is protected against north winds also in winter time. As a health and climatic resort of an international reputation it was known as early as the previous century. The location of an event is situated on the historically important place. On the hilltop, where the hotel resort Bernardin is situated, are the ruins of a church from the 15th century. Nearby are the historic salt warehouses of Monfort, built in the time of Napoleon between 1820 and 1845, and now listed a cultural and historical heritage. They were built in the time of Napoleon between 1820 and 1845. Nowadays, Monfort is an exhibition gallery and is part of the coastal regional galleries for modern art. Portorožis easy to reach from airports in Ljubljana, Trieste and Venice. The workshop will take place in Grand hotel Bernardin.
