Scope & Concerns

Submit a Proposal

Submit your proposal by 9 September 2016.

We welcome the submission of proposals to the conference at any time of the year before the final submission deadline. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission.

If you are unable to attend the conference in person, you may present in a Virtual Poster session or a Virtual Lightning Talk. Virtual Sessions enable participants to present work to a body of peers and to engage with colleagues from afar.

As virtual participants, presenters are scheduled in the formal program, have access to select conference content, can submit an article for peer review and possible publication, may upload an online presentation, and can enjoy Annual Membership to the community and subscriber access to the Journal of Tourism and Leisure Studies.

Conference Partners

We are honored to have the International Institute for the Inclusive Museum (iiiM) and the Institute of Sustainable Tourism and Economic Development (Tides) as our conference partners for the 2017 conference.
