¿Qué será, será? Adolescent Research into the Future: Visions and Challenges
Biennial conference of the European Association for Research on Adolescence (EARA).
Who are we?
EARA is a European Non-Profit-Making Organisation with headquarters in the Netherlands (http://www.earaonline.org). The organisation is dedicated to furthering our knowledge about adolescents and young adults. Members are researchers and practitioners from different disciplines such as Psychology, Sociology, Social Work, Anthropology, Paediatrics, and Education. EARA builds networks among researchers, offers workshops to postgraduate students, and organises a conference every second year in a different country. The conference in Andalucia will be the XVth Biennial meeting. It will be co-organised with the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid.
What is the conference about?
Researchers mainly from Europe, but also from countries all over the world will discuss issues of importance for young people: This will be in the form of key-note speeches, where internationally-known researchers present their research, in symposia, where researchers give a short presentation of their most recent results, in discussion groups, where significant issues are debated, and in the form of posters, where studies are presented in graphic form and exhibited on a poster.
The conference will be attended by academics, students and professional practitioners. In the past years, the number of delegates varied between 320 and 450 delegates.
The conference language is English, but there will be a limited number of papers in Spanish.
Previous conference sites have been Çesme, Turkey (2014), Spetses, Greece (2012), Vilnius, Lithuania (2010), Torino, Italy (2008), Antalya, Turkey (2006), Oporto, Portugal (2004).
