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".
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 located close the Aachen train station (2 kilometres) and history city centre.

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.

FUNDING FOR PRESENTERS
The EARLI Executive Committee (EC) would like to express its commitment to EARLI members who are facing financial struggles and for whom the conference attendance is perhaps not an evident option. In order to do so, the EARLI EC offers funding which will be granted under the form of a waived conference fee to a number of participants.
More information on how the EARLI EC would like to reach out to researchers residing in low-GDP countries and as such facilitate their participation in the EARLI 2019 conference can be found here.
