Submissions

We are accepting the following types of submissions:

Papers: 20-minute oral presentations of completed or well-developed projects on topics suitable for publication in scholarly and professional journals. Proposals that report on completed or ongoing research will be given preference. Diverse perspectives (theoretical and applied) and methodologies are welcomed. Proposals should be in the form of an extended abstract (approximately 1000-1500 words excluding references), reporting on research projects, theoretical developments or innovative practical applications.

Posters: Visual presentations of completed or well-developed projects on topics suitable for publication in scholarly and professional journals. Proposals that report on completed or ongoing research will be given preference. Diverse perspectives (theoretical and applied) and methodologies are welcomed. Proposals should be in the form of a short abstract (with a limit of 750 words excluding references), reporting on research projects, theoretical developments or innovative practical applications.

Alternative Events: Presentations of completed or nascent research, issues in research or practice, or work that does not lend itself to presentation in paper form may be submitted as an alternative event. The assumption is that these events are highly interactive or participatory in nature, including but not limited to:

  • Panels: Panels presenting topics for discussion such as successful practitioner/academic collaborations, research challenges, emerging trends, and contrasting viewpoints from experts in complementary professional areas are welcome.
  • Ignite Talks: A collection of short presentations (25 slides, 20 seconds each) on a theme with ample time for audience questions and discussion.
  • Fishbowl Conversations: A highly participatory conversation initially led by a set of speakers who yield the floor to audience members after introducing a topic and their perspective or related research.

Proposals for alternative events should be in the form of an extended abstract (approximately 1000-1500 words excluding references), providing an overview of the issues, projects, or viewpoints to be presented. Submissions must also include title, names and affiliations of all participants (including moderator, speakers, reactors, etc.).

The submission deadline for all proposals is January 14, 2013. Proposals should be submitted via EasyChair. For further instructions on how to submit to EasyChair, click here.
