Call for Papers / experiences


The Edumeet Conference is a space-time to share transferable experiences that allow us to rethink the future of education and the university, establishing a new contract with the world. In its first edition, Edumeet proposes to look at our reality, in search of contexts where research and innovation is generated from any field: technology, science, design, collaboration or entrepreneurship, from any formal or informal practice. We believe that many present realities mean valuable conditions for improving the future learning, and that these useful experiences can be transferable.

We propose four lines of research and a transversal input:

Teaching-learning methodologies.

What trends, tools, agencies and contexts anticipate the future of education? We seek for research cases, experiences or projects that show new education paths. How can we connect research, innovation and pedagogy with the future of cities and citizenship?

Transfers the real.

What experiences outside of education can be crucial to positive change in university? We look for new connections between real experiences and educative innovation. How can public/private/social institutions empower new realities and transfer international innovation?

Hybrid reality.

What kind of new strategies dealing with on-site / online life can empower education? We are curious about the potential of virtual tools in order to articulate new educative-learning spaces. Can we imagine new engagements between digital and physical life in our built environments?

Revolutions from/to the University.

How is it possible to produce ecological or techno-social impact from the academy? How can we build a renewed contract between the university and the world? Could be our cities and built environment a pedagogical scenario to deal with ecological and social challenges?

In this edition we consider one transversal input, an optional frame to reflect on: our cities and built environment as a space for transfers and opportunity to expand the boundaries of university.

A conference that is more than a conference, in which we will also explore academic-experimental research formats.

The open call enables two categories: scientific articles & experiencies.

So entries will have the format of research papers or open projects. Both categories will take part in a digital+physical publication. In addition scientific articles will take part in digital proceedings to be indexed.

The peer review will take place in two phases:

Abstract deadline: (Extended) October 1st 21st, 2020. Only for Experiences category (closed for papers, but we will probably open an open call for December 2020*)

Full research deadline: November 10th, 2020(for papers category)*
