Call for Papers

Abstracts Submission

Interested researchers are invited to submit an abstract (max. 300 words) and bio (max. 150 words) words, no later than 17 May 2020. The notification about the selection is foreseen for 31 May 2020. For those accepted, full papers (6000-7000 words) will need to be submitted for pre-circulations to conference participants by 31 October 2020.

Selected conference papers are expected to be published in an edited book or peer-reviewed journal as a special collection (scheduled for 2021), hence the paper to the conference should not have been already published elsewhere. Decisions on the selection of the papers for publication will be made after the workshop.

Paper proposals and application for funding support should be submitted via the conference website.

Financial Subsidy

Financial subsidy to offset travel cost and accommodation will be available to a limited number of participants from overseas. Participants should indicate in their submission whether they would like to be considered for funding support and provide a basic budget outlining their projected travel and accommodation expenses to attend the conference. For reimbursement of expenses, full paper needs to be submitted by 31 October 2020.
