Abstract submission

Authors are invited to submit an abstract (maximum 500 words, plus references) by November 9, 2018. Submission will open in September and shall be done via our conference management tool. More information on this will be announced later.
Please structure the extended abstract according to the following segments:

  • Type of paper (Regular/Work-In-Progress)
  • Purpose
  • Design/methodology/approach
  • Findings
  • Practical implications
  • Originality/value

Please make sure that no author information appears in your submitted abstract, as all abstracts will undergo double blind review. In case you submit an abstract that contains any information that identify you or a co-author, the abstract will be removed from the system and you will be invited to resubmit.
