Conference papers

The organising committee recommends participants to upload their full papers in early September, so that other participants have access to them. If your abstract was accepted in the online platform the status of your application is marked as ”Awaiting upload”, which means you are able to upload your paper at any time.

There are no specific recommendations regarding the length and editing of the papers. However, we would kindly ask you to only upload pdf files.

Before and during the conference papers will only be available in the conference platform to those registered as Reader. After the conference we would like to publish the papers on the conference website. During of or immediately after the conference you will be asked for your consent on this.

There are some editorial projects already taking shape, consequently some of you will be contacted or were already contacted by colleagues preparing proposals for special issues in academic journals.

Full conference papers can be accessed via the online platform (username and password required).
