EARLI SIG8 Junior and Early Career Researcher Virtual Conference

UPDATE (30.07.2020): The conference program is now out. Please have a look at the exciting presentations: https://conference.sig17.net/schedule/

We are proud to announce a virtual conference for the junior and early career researchers of SIG8 with a theme “Motivation and Emotion in Education: Responding to Global Challenges”.

Due to the current global health crisis, this year’s International Conference on Motivation (ICM) 2020 had to be postponed. With technical and organizational support offered by SIG17 (a very special ‘thank you’ goes to Dominik Froehlich for his commitment and expertise), we are able to organize a virtual meeting to provide you an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and timely feedback. Please note that the virtual meeting is not a “replacement” for our in-person conference and is geared toward the needs of our junior and early career members.

We are using the same time slot as originally scheduled for our in-person conference. The virtual conference will take place on September 3rd – September 4th, 2020, after the lunchtime (two afternoons, around 14:00-18:30, CEST). 

We are equally excited to announce our keynote speakerDr. Kou Murayama. Dr. Murayama is a Research Professor of Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Reading, UK. His research spans across the areas of motivation, metacognition, neuroscience, and research methods. He is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards for research excellence.

What’s more? You will have a chance to participate in the networking events by visiting open space rooms, where you can talk with other researchers in your field, discuss current issues in your research, explore potential collaboration space and interesting new research initiatives or simply chat. This could be your platform to get ideas, help or peer-support and expand your network.

We are thrilled about this opportunity and hope that many of you will participate. You can join with a presentation already accepted for either the summer school or the joint conference of the EARLI SIGs 8 and 16. This way you do not need to do any extra work for submission and we ensure the quality of the virtual conference. New submissions cannot be submitted for presentation at the virtual conference.

Ticket price*:  33 EUR/early bird ticket (till July, 31)
                       44 EUR/normal price (after August, 1)
 (*A pleasant bonus:SIG17 is offering free access to their events to all participating SIG8 members.)

We kindly ask you to sign up by July 22nd, 2020. Your participation is important to keep the virtual conference interactive and to ensure success of the networking events. We believe that collaboration is important and warmly encourage you to sign up! You can register for the virtual SIG8 conference here.
