2012 ICHRIE Call for Papers

Submission Start Date:
6 October 2011

Conference Information
Academics and researchers in tourism and hospitality are invited to join the 2012 Annual ICHRIE Summer Conference from 1-4 August at the Westin Providence in Providence, Rhode Island USA.
The 2012 ICHRIE conference will be filled with informative refereed presentations, the latest in educational research, exciting displays at the ICHRIE Marketplace and Expo and lots of networking opportunities for members and guests to reconnect with educators, researchers and industry colleagues.

Submission Guidelines
Conceptually or empirically based papers may be submitted within the Referred Papers Track for either twenty (20) minute stand-up or alternatively for poster presentations.  Papers that are not research-based should be submitted through the Symposium Track. All submissions for the 2012 International CHRIE Conference are required to be submitted electronically by using the EasyChair online submission system.

A paper may only be submitted once, with no retractions or modifications once submitted.  Once submitted, the order and names of authors listed on the original submission may not be altered,  including indication of the lead author's name.

ICHRIE will correspond with the Lead (primary) author only. Co-presenters should not contact ICHRIE. It is the primary author's responsibility to notify all co-presenters regarding the status of the proposal as well as to notify International CHRIE of any change in the Lead Author’s contact information. International CHRIE will use the contact information provided on the original submission and it is the Lead Author's responsibility to notify ICHRIE of any change in contact information.

All presenters are required to register for the full conference or for a one-day conference registration for the day of the presentation.  All travel and additional expenses, including the conference registration fee, are the responsibility of the presenter(s). Please note that at least one presenter of any given presentation must be an International CHRIE member in good standing. Any co-presenters who are not ICHRIE members will be required to register for the conference and pay the nonmember rate.

Paper Review Process
Submissions are judged on their overall quality (design of the study, development of the concept, etc.), their significance of the contribution to the discipline, and their interest to conference delegates. All submitted manuscripts must be original (i.e. not been published elsewhere), follow academic writing, structure and methodology. All submissions for refereed papers are subject to a double blind review process. Papers judged to have outstanding merit by the Conference Paper Review Committees will receive a Best Paper designation in the conference program and will be recognized at a general session for all attendees.
