Call for papers


All presentations are standup (oral) presentations; no poster presentations. Even though only abstracts were submitted, the full paper should be presented. Presenters can use PowerPoint or the offline version of Prezi.

No parallel sessions! This means every presenter gets the full attention of all participants. This is a great opportunity for presenters to receive feedback. We are currently planning on 20 minute time slots (15 minutes presentation, 5 minutes discussion). If feasible we will increase the time slots to 25 minutes (15+10).


Publication of abstracts: Please note that Encuentros/AIRTH 2017 provides a print copy of all registered abstracts at the conference. Additionally abstracts, for which authors agreed to an electronic posting of abstracts, will be posted as a compendium on the Encuentros/AIRTH website once typesetting is completed.

Optional full paper: Full papers can be submitted to a preferred track at Academica Turistica – Tourism and Innovation Journal (AT-TIJ,, where a special edition (or section in an edition) will be dedicated to our conference. AT-TIJ is a peer-reviewed open-source journal hosted by our conference partner University of Primorska, Faculty of Tourism Studies – Turistica. Submission deadline is May 28, 2017.
