The motto of LINQ 2019 was: "Innovative School Education for Sustainable Development". Thus, LINQ 2019 invited to one of the most innovative schools worldwide, the Niekée school located in Roermond, the Netherlands.

LINQ 2019 published an open Call for Papers on: This Call for Papers asked specifically for submissions related to innovative and quality learning in schools but it was not limited to it: All scientific papers related to innovations and quality aspects in any educational levels and learning topics were most welcome.

There were 16 paper submissions on the Call for Papers of LINQ 2019. All paper submissions were evaluated in double-blind peer-review by the International Programme Committee using the automatic EasyChair review system (with declared conflict of interest by the LINQ 2019 Chair due his own submission so that he could not see and influence the reviews). Each submission was reviewed by International Programme Committee members, on the average by 2.2 members (see the list of the International Programme Committee members on: The International Programme Committee decided to accept five papers published in this proceedings.
