JURE 2022

JURE 2022

The Junior Researchers of EARLI host an annual conference offering the possibility to meet fellow junior researchers from all over Europe and exchange ideas and experiences. JURE provides an environment where juniors can socialise and participate in a scientific community.


Unpredictable Challenges - Education in a Rapidly Changing World

We would like to invite our fellow junior researchers to critically think about the role of education in addressing global challenges, such as the ongoing pandemic, the climatic change, the refugees crisis, and the spread of misinformation. How can education and educational research contribute to tackle these and other emerging challenges in a rapidly changing world? We therefore hope for an inspiring conference with presentations, workshops and keynotes that will not only showcase the newest findings about the cognitive, motivational, and emotional aspects of learning and instruction, but will also be a place to discuss the global challenges that shape the present and will define the future of our societies.


The JURE 2022 organising committee warmly invites you to participate in the exploration of the theme “Unpredictable challenges: Education in a rapidly changing world”. We aim to collaborate with each other and share and discuss the latest research in education from around the world. We will have several keynote speakers and expert-led workshops, paper presentations, interactive poster sessions, and round table discussions. To deepen this joint journey, all participants of the 26th JURE Conference are expected to take part in the feedback procedure and to provide comments on one submission (i.e., paper, poster, or round table hand-out) of another conference participant. All submissions will be reviewed in a single review round by both a senior and a junior researcher.

All junior researchers (PhD and MA or MSc students, as well as graduates who have received their doctorate within the last two years) can apply to participate in the 26th JURE Conference. Thus, participants will have the opportunity to meet many researchers from around the world and exchange experience and knowledge, either during formal presentations or in informal chats over coffee breaks, lunch hours, and social activities.


The JURE 2022 Conference will take place at the University of Porto, Portugal.

Located in the north of Portugal, between the Atlantic beaches and the famous River Douro terraces, Porto and its urban area have a population of over 1.3 million. Porto’s history is strongly linked to trade and love of freedom – so much so, that it is called Cidade Invicta (Undefeated City). Porto is known around the world for the charms of its historic centre (UNESCO World Heritage since 1996), Port wine, its generous gastronomy and the unrivalled hospitality of its inhabitants.

Submissions will be opened from the 1st of November 2021 until the 20th of January 2022 (midnight CET). At JURE 2022, we welcome the following submission types:

Consult the JURE 2022 submission guidelines to prepare your submission in the best possible way.



A paper session consists of 3 conceptually linked papers. Each paper is offered 20 minutes of presentation, followed by 10 minutes of questions from the audience. 
A paper session is scheduled for 90 minutes.



A poster session consists of 4 to 6 conceptually linked posters. Each poster is introduced with a brief plenary presentation (max 3 min.) followed by in-depth discussion in smaller groups.

A poster session is scheduled for 90 minutes.

Round Table


A roundtable session consists of 3 conceptually linked presentations. Each presenter has 5 minutes to introduce his/her project and raise one or two open questions, after which 25 minutes are intended for discussion.

A roundtable session is scheduled for 90 minutes.


Contrary to previous JURE conferences, JURE 2022 will use just one review round (instead of two).
Each submission will be assessed by both a senior reviewer and a fellow JURE submitter.

As such, we kindly ask each submitter to sign up as a reviewer as well.
Acting as a reviewer is mandatory to take part in the JURE 2022 submission process.

Consult the JURE 2022 Review Guidelines to optimally prepare how to act as a reviewer.
