We live in challenging times – this holds true for our personal and for our professional lives. And it certainly holds true for academic events like ECER. ECER has always been the heart of EERA’s annual work schedule and we greatly enjoy offering opportunities for the thousands of colleagues who annually attend ECER conferences to connect. After the cancelation of ECER 2020, and the experience with the 2021 online event, we now plan towards ECER 2022.
It is our aim to hold ECER 2022 as an in-person conference and we look forward to having the event in Yerevan for the first time. We hope that as many people as possible will accept our invitation to join the European educational research community at ECER 2022 in Yerevan.
However, we also understand that colleagues have concerns and are unsure as to whether they can make long term travel plans or indeed whether they will have funding to facilitate these plans. In addition, after the successful ECER 2021, participants asked for more online participation options, which may open the conference to those who might not be in a position to join us in person.
ECER 2022, Yerevan and ECER plus: Making ECER as inclusive as possible
In response to this, we would like to add an online element to our conference and introduce ECER 2022, Yerevan and ECER Plus. The event in Yerevan will follow our traditional schedule, starting with the Emerging Researchers’ Conference 22 - 23 August as an in-person event. The in-person sessions of ECER will run from 23 – 26 August. The in-person sessions of ECER will run from 23 – 26 August. ECER Plus (online) will take place 1 – 10 September, further details will be announced in due time. With a joint app for both parts of the event, ECER Yerevan (in-person) and ECER Plus (online), we aim to create as many connections as possible. In order to give everybody ample time to decide whether or not to travel to Yerevan, we will ask submitters to decide in early April whether they wish to join us in person or online. Until then, people will have time to explore travel plans and funding options.
As we need to adapt to the changing plans, the submissions system to ECER 2022 will open with a slight delay on 7 December.
The submission and reviewing process will remain as in previous years. After review results are announced in early April, all submitting authors of accepted papers will have two weeks to confirm if their contribution is meant to stay in the in-person programme or if it needs to be scheduled during the online days. Registration for in-person and online participation will open thereafter.
With this we hope to enable a lively and rich in-person conference while opening up for those who might find it challenging to travel to the event.
