Call for Abstracts

  • Opening day
  • Submission deadline

You are invited to submit your contribution to the conference.

Two tracks are planned: a ‘research’ track, intended to host scientific studies, projects, and initiatives, and a ‘practice’ track, to present concrete applications, current ongoing initiatives, and implementations. In both cases, the link to further papers, materials, and resources is allowed and encouraged.

To apply for the Research track, please submit a 1000-1500 word abstract (excluding the reference list) that will be peer-reviewed. Figures and tables should be uploaded as separate figures (convert your tables into images). Each image linked to your Abstract will reduce your word count by 3-6 words. After submission, you can edit your Abstract to insert your image using the image button in the WYSIWYG editor.

The initial submission is an unstructured extended abstract which should cover the following aspects:

  • General statement (context)
  • Problem statement
  • Specific research question this study is answering/research gap
  • Methods to answer the question (tools, theories, ...)
  • Answer to the question
  • Results and conclusion (Please include why this answer is important and to whom. And why is this study important for future work?)

Relevant dates:

  • Submission opens: 1st November 2023
  • Extended abstract submission deadline: 10th December 2023
  • Peer-review results: 31st January 2024
  • Revised extended abstract due: 20th February 2024
  • Deadline for speakers’ registration: 20th February 2024

To apply for the Practice track, please submit a maximum 500-word abstract of the proposed presentation (excluding the reference list).

Relevant dates:

  • Submission opens: 1st November 2023
  • Abstract submission deadline: 15th January 2023
  • Presentation confirmation: 10th February 2024
  • Deadline for speakers’ registration: 20th February 2023

All the abstracts will be published as proceedings in the conference publication (indexed in Scopus).

Best contributions will be invited to be extended and submitted to a scientific journal special issue. The special issue of the journal (Scopus Q1 and SCIE Q2) is partly edited by the conference organizing team. The full paper will be subject to a regular peer review process, according to the journal.

The call for abstracts is closed.
