The JURE 2019 Pre-Conference invites Junior Researchers from around the world to engage in compelling discussions on "Junior Researchers Thinking Tomorrow's Education". JURE 2019 offers early career researchers a first academic conference experience, and the opportunity to meet colleagues from across the globe.
The 18th Biennial EARLI Conference will be hosted by RWTH Aachen, Germany. We encourage participants to present results and ideas on state-of-the-art research in learning and instruction, specifically around the topic "Thinking Tomorrow's Education: Learning from the past, in the present and for the future".
Be sure to register before the 3rd of April 2019 (midnight CET) to enjoy the Early Bird discount!

Thinking Tomorrow's Education: Learning from the past, in the present and for the future.
Located in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany’s westernmost city offers a rich history and cultural, archeological and architectural heritage.
Characterised by winding alleys flanked by baroque buildings and overlooked by its famous UNESCO world heritage Cathedral, the city was the seat of Charlemagne, sometimes referred to as the “Father of Europe”. He can be considered as one of the first persons who helped to mold a collective European historical thinking.
Located on the three country corner, where the borders of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands meet, Aachen is a popular tourist destination, easily reached by train and car. There are a myriad of airports to choose from spread across several countries – Maastricht-Aachen (NL), Cologne, Frankfurt and Düsseldorf (DE) or Brussels (BE) – each of which offer a good railway connection to the city. Aachen counts approximately 45,000 students on a population of 258,000. As a high-tech city, it’s involved in several cross-border knowledge region initiatives such as the ELAt (triangle Eindhoven – Leuven – Aachen).
Hosted by the RWTH Aachen University, we are looking forward to welcome you in the brand-new state-of-the-art C.A.R.L. building, offering the perfect conference setting, and closely located to the Aachen train station (2 kilometres) and historic city centre.

EARLI 2019 GOES GREEN!
To lower the environmental impact of our conference, we are taking a number of steps to reduce waste and offer eco-friendly alternatives to your conference experience. Each delegate will receive a special EARLI 2019 reusable water bottle in their conference bag, instead of using plastic cups for water breaks. Reusable porcelain coffee mugs will replace throwaway plastic or paper mugs for your daily caffeine fix. Additionally, printed programme books will be offered at a small surcharge or 10€ to those who prefer a hard copy (to be purchased together with your registration ticket). The EARLI 2019 conference app offers an environmentally-friendly alternative to check the last updates to the conference programme!
Due to a possible clash with the Formula 1 in Spa-Francorchamps (BE) which takes place at the end of August, EARLI has decided to move its conference a bit earlier, now taking place from August 10th-11th (JURE 2019) and 12th -16th (EARLI 2019).

A paper session consists of four papers and is scheduled for 90 minutes.
Poster sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes, following the format above. Materials for fixing posters on the walls or poster boards will be provided.
A symposium is scheduled for 90 minutes, allowing 15 minutes presentation time per speaker, ten minutes for the discussant, and 20 minutes for open discussion.
Roundtable sessions offer opportunities for a more discursive exploration of research issues. This may well involve discussion of work in progress. The presenters explain their research and research issue, and invite the participants to help to discuss emerging data or to solve a research issue or problem. Roundtable sessions will take place in seminar rooms with a board-room style table.
Three to five roundtable sessions are clustered together per session, and are scheduled for 90 minutes.
ICT Demonstrations allow presenters to display, explain and familiarise users with a potentially useful teaching or research tool or method. The presentation may include references to completed research, but the point of the session is to demonstrate the tool, not present the research for criticism. The audience may offer their viewpoints and share their experiences with similar tools or different tools for the same purpose.
ICT Demonstrations are scheduled individually, for 90 minutes.

The review process is the most important aspect of organizing the EARLI conference, as the outcome of this process will determine the quality of the participants' experience. As a result, EARLI strives to ensure that the process is rigorous and transparent.
The EARLI 2019 review process concluded on the 7th of February 2019.
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all 620 reviewers who helped us ensure the scientific quality of the conference!
JACOBS FOUNDATION TRAVEL AWARD
