Together with the 17th Spanish & 9th Ibero-American Education Conference

Guidelines for Accepted Submissions

WERA is looking forward to the multiple opportunities and worldwide collaboration that a virtual meeting generates. Using the EventsAir platform will enable us to host a virtual conference that is rigorous and engaged. Prior to the conference we will send participants detailed guidelines on how to best make use of the platform capabilities. We will notify registered participants of online training opportunities where they will be able to familiarise themselves with the platform in order to easily navigate virtual presentations, chair-roles and networking opportunities. Throughout the conference there will be live IT-support.

s published in the WERA Call for submissions, final full papers for all accepted submissions, including the underlying paper for a poster presentation, must be uploaded in pdf-format via the submission platform ( by 31 May 2021. For symposia, please collate papers into one document in order to upload. Subsequent to the WERA Focal meeting there will be an invitation to all accepted presenters to submit a manuscript for review and consideration in a next WERA Global Perspectives on Education Research (GPER).
