All EARLI 2019 delegates are invited to take part in the EARLI Members' Meeting, on Wednesday 14th of August from 17:15 - 18:45 at the C.A.R.L. building, Lecturel Hall - H03. This assembly meeting is lead by the current EARLI Executive Committee and EARLI President Sanna Järvelä.


Before each keynote session, we offer a 5 to 7-minutes activity break in Lecture Hall H01, which is led by qualified trainers from the university sports centre (start at 13:35). The exercises include loosening, stretching, relaxing and strengthening exercises, especially for the shoulder, neck and back muscles. The aim of this moving break is to increase concentration and well-being so that the delegates can take up the contents of the following keynotes even better.


The EARLI 2019 Gala Dinner will be served exclusively at the Aachen Coronation Hall, which on its completion around 1349 was the largest secular hall in the Holy Roman Empire. While in the Middle Ages it hosted the coronation banquets, today it is the International Charlemagne Prize that gives the hall its European significance.

The Gala Dinner will be held on Friday the 16th of August to mark the festive end of the conference.
Places for the dinner are limited, so make sure to purchase your ticket when registering for EARLI 2019. Admittance will only be offered to delegates who purchased a dinner ticket beforehand.


In a change to previous EARLI conferences, we offer an open afterparty for all delegates, on Friday (August 16th - 22:30)! The EARLI 2019 afterparty gives all delegates the opportunity to join the informal part of the evening. No admittance fee, you will only have to pay for your drinks. The afterparty will take place at the Pontstrasse 72 – only a three minutes walk from the Coronation Hall. If you would like to attend the party, you can already add your three favourite party tracks to the Spotify EARLI 2019 Afterparty Megamix . We are looking forward to a great party!
