The JURE 2021 Pre-Conference invites Junior Researchers from around the world to engage in compelling discussions on "Citizenship and Education". JURE 2021 offers early career researchers a first academic conference experience, and the opportunity to meet colleagues from across the globe.
The 19th Biennial EARLI Conference will be hosted by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. We encourage participants to present results and ideas on state-of-the-art research in learning and instruction, specifically around the topic "Education and Citizenship: Learning and Instruction and the Shaping of Futures ".
The joy and excitement of learning and of knowledge sharing and creation, represent significant components of learning, and they should be considered as important outcomes of learning along with our traditional competence measures. In this respect, they need far more attention from researchers. The pandemic spreading during 2020 reminded us of the fact that the future is increasingly difficult to predict but it seems safe to say that learning and re-learning will continue a top prioirity regardless of the future. The EARLI community accepts the responsibility to show how learning and instruction are consequential for the intellectual, social and cultural fabric of societies striving to shape their future on the road to sustainability.
VÄLKOMMEN TILL GÖTEBORG - WELCOME TO GOTHENBURG
The 19th Biennial EARLI Conference will be hosted by the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
The second-largest city in Sweden, Gothenburg celebrates its 500th anniversary in 2021, its foundation charter having been signed in 1621. Strategically located on the Swedish west coast, on the banks of the Göta river with access to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, the city is known for its historical openness. This was particularly reflected in its first city councils, composed of Dutch, German and Scottish as well as Swedish inhabitants.
With about 47,500 students and 6,400 staff members, the University of Gothenburg is one of the largest universities in the Nordic countries. Since its inception in 1891, the university has become synonym for academic excellence and is known for playing an innovative role in today’s society.
Gothenburg was awarded as one of the European Capitals of Smart Tourism 2020 and granted a specific award for its sustainability. As EARLI takes steps to limit the ecological footprint of its conference, sustainability is a shared key concern. Therefore, we invite you to explore alternative means of transportation to Gothenburg!
Apart from its unique history, Gothenburg also plays an important part in EARLI’s history having hosted the 8th Biennial Conference in 1999. Some of you will have fond memories and for newcomers, we hope to create them!

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. In case the symposium only contains 3 papers, the additional time should be used for interaction.
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.
Workshops 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.
Workshops are scheduled individually for 90 minutes.
Collaborative workspaces allow the discussion of ongoing or future research projects with the goal of establishing or strengthening research collaborations. This may include collaborations about the constructs that researchers use, but also about methodologies or a specific content area. The submission for a collaborative space should include the main content area for which collaboration shall be established or deepened.
Collaborative workspaces are scheduled individually for 90 minutes.
