JURE 2024


The JURE 2024 conference will be hosted by the University of Sevilla in Spain, from 24 - 28 June 2024.

The 28th JURE Conference invites Junior Researchers from around the world to engage in compelling discussions on educational research. JURE 2024 offers early career researchers a first academic conference experience and the opportunity to meet colleagues from across the globe.


Sevilla is the capital and largest city of the Spanish autonomous community of Andalusia and the province of Seville. Located along the Guadalquivir river, its historic old town contains a UNESCO World Heritage Site comprising three buildings: the Alcázar palace complex, the Cathedral and the General Archive of the Indies.

The University of Sevilla is a reference in the Spanish and European university system. With more than 70,000 students enrolled in the last year, the university ranks as the second largest Spanish university. To accommodate all its students and staff, the University of Sevilla has one of the most modern and accessible campuses, with more than 32 centers and 80,000 m² of sports facilities. The university is also essential to promoting and understanding the culture and heritage of Sevilla, as many of its buildings are a testament of the architectural and historical wealth of the city.

The conference will be hosted at the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Sevilla, C. Camilo José Cela, s/n, 41018 Sevilla.


Education and the Need for Dynamic Solutions: Shaping the Future of the Field

In its most basic definition, education shapes human nature for socialisation. Therefore, it's arguably one of the activities that most fosters human development. However, society is currently experiencing rapid and profound changes, presenting education with complex challenges. These include sustainable development, combating climate change, addressing misinformation, the proliferation of polarised opinions and pseudoscience, ensuring healthy and enriching interculturality, and more. These challenges are deeply intertwined with the unstoppable digitalisation, which plays a significant role in educational research and practice. Digitalisation is not only a tool for teaching and learning but also a learning objective in itself.

Consequently, education is a driving force for change, especially in the face of an uncertain future. To meet these demands, educational research is dedicated to finding effective and flexible teaching methods that can adapt to the dynamic solutions required by the field. Our current times also present educational research with an interesting paradox. While new and ever-evolving challenges demand rapid, dynamic solutions, educational practice aims to provide a calm, safe space for students and learners to explore and discover.

It may be bold to claim that this is one of the most crucial periods for educational research and practice, but the JURE 2024 organisers believe that it's time to take action! Therefore, we invite junior researchers to share the insights they've gained through their dedicated work with the JURE community. The quest for dynamic solutions may be challenging, but it is undeniably exciting!


Submissions for JURE 2024 have now closed.

Submission Guidelines

We welcome the following submission types:

Paper 0


Paper sessions consist of three thematically clustered paper presentations, followed by a discussion with the audience. It is important that empirical papers have data and results or they will not be accepted. Theoretical papers, which provide background research, specific evidence, analytical thinking and/or recommendations on specific themes and topics, are also welcome.

Paper sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Three presenters are given 20 minutes presentation time followed by 10 minutes for questions.



Interactive poster sessions involve up to six posters. A short presentation of about 3 minutes for each poster is given to an audience gathered as a group. After the authors’ brief presentation, an in-depth discussion between them and the audience follows. The poster sessions offer researchers the chance to present their work in a visual format and offer more opportunities for interaction and discussion.

Poster sessions are scheduled for 90 minutes. Six presenters are each offered a brief presentation slot to introduce the poster (max. 3 minutes), after which there will be time to discuss each poster in greater depth, in smaller groups.

Poster Guidelines



Roundtable sessions involve three thematically clustered presentations and offer opportunities for a more discursive exploration of research issues. This may well involve discussion of work in progress. The presenters elaborate on their emerging data and theory, and invite the participants to contribute to a discussion on potential challenges. Three presenters will explain and discuss their research one after another.

A roundtable session is scheduled for 90 minutes. Each presenter has five minutes to introduce his/her project and raise one or two open questions. Twentyfive minutes are intended for discussion.

Roundtable Guidelines


The full programme schedule will be made available in late May 2024.

You can already consult the programme overview below. Please do note that this can be subject to small changes.

The review process is the most important aspect of organising the JURE conference, as the outcome of this process will determine the scientific quality of the conference, and the quality of the participants' experience.

As JURE 2024 also aims to provide a learning opportunity for junior researchers to improve their academic and meta-skills, all submitted proposals will be reviewed by a senior and junior reviewer. As such, all JURE 2024 submitters are required to take part in the review process, to review one contribution of a fellow submitter. The review process will start as soon as the submission deadline has expired and will run until the 14th of March, midnight CET.

Real Fabrica de tabacos

Guided tour of the Rectorate Building

Wednesday 26th of June

The building that houses the Rectorate of the University of Seville is a gigantic construction that was built in the 18th century as a cigarette factory. At that time, it was the largest cigarette factory in Europe, and its production was based on tobacco that arrived from the Spanish colonies in America thanks to the navigability of the Guadalquivir River up to Seville. During this guided tour, we will learn about the history of this impressive building, the University of Seville, and the society of the time. You probably know Carmen, the protagonist of the opera that bears her name. She was a worker in that cigarette factory, and her tragic story largely unfolded within those walls.

Duration: 1 hour

19:00 (50 pax) - free
