Cartagena, Spain, 6-11 June 2017

Deadline for extended abstracts (no more than 2,000 words) � 31 March 2017


The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for research collaboration and mentoring of emerging tourism researchers in order to share their research experience. The organising committee invites scholars from tourism studies and the wider social sciences to join. Papers can be submitted for two categories: thesis/dissertations and research papers.

All accepted extended abstracts (max 2000 words) are included in the proceedings that will be distributed in both printed and electronic forms upon your arrival at the registration desk. The proceedings will have an ISSN number. All papers will go through the blind review process to nominate the best paper award that will be dedicated to Professor John Crompton, Texas A&M University, USA.

In a further stage, a selected list of papers (max 5000 words) will be considered for publication as a chapter in a book form due by international publishers. To date, we have published 9 edited books by CABI, Routledge, Emerald, Springer, and Cambridge Scholars.
