Call for abstracts

Many thanks for your interest in attending the conference. However, as COVID-19 continues to spread, and people’s health and safety become the overriding factor, the organizing committee has decided that it has to postpone the conference.  We will seek to reschedule it for December 2021 and communicate appropriately in due course.

Abstracts of 400 to 600 words (excluding references) are invited for peer review. Abstracts should clearly state the presentation objectives and findings, and explicitly identify how these findings advance our knowledge of flourishing in outdoor adventure. Please identify the specific SDG(s) that your work addresses using the template provided. The abstract should also include: title, keywords, introduction, method, findings/discussion and conclusion.

Inspiring conference posters are also requested from students.

All abstracts should be submitted to [email protected] using the template provided.

The deadline for abstract submission is March 30, 2020.

Early notification of acceptance is also available upon request. Simply email this request to [email protected].

Note: All accepted abstracts will be published in the conference book of abstracts, and will be available on the conference web page. There is also the possibility for some papers to be considered for post-conference publication in a suitable format.

Alternative Modes of Investigation and Expression

Submissions may include explorations or interpretations of Adventure Tourism knowledge in such forms as walking tours, outdoor activities, installations, film or video or artistic creative expression such as (dance, performance art, movement, music, song or sound). For consideration, please submit an abstract of 400-600 words outlining the contribution of your session and a brief overview of your proposed alternative mode format and requirements (indoor/outdoor, distance, physical requirements, technology etc.). We encourage creative and non-conventional approaches.

All abstracts and accompanying material should be submitted to [email protected] using the template provided if this suits the submission. All elements of each submission (whatever format is most suitable) must have some means of associated identification. Use the most appropriate and practical medium for explanation to accompany your abstract (for example, audio files, movie files, diagrams or links to sites such as Vimeo or YouTube). Reviewers must be able to access each portion of the submission with relative ease.
