The EventHorizon academic deep dive session is a forum to foster interactions among researchers and practitioners around novel, innovative research on topics listed below. We invite researchers and developers to present both complete and incomplete research. Even innovative ideas for future research are welcome, with the aim of generating a lively discussion. Submitted abstracts should include research objectives, (proposed) methodology, and a discussion of (expected) outcomes.

A total of 20 posters will be selected for display at EventHorizon 2018 (format: A1 laminated, portrait orientation), where poster authors could engage in discussions with interested attendees. In addition, top 5 posters will also be presented at a panel session on April 18 (5-minute presentations to be followed by a moderated Q&A session). Notably, lead author of each of the 20 posters will be provided with a free conference ticket and other authors will automatically be granted academic discount.

As a result of established cooperation with the Journal of Energy Markets, abstracts that present original and previously unpublished work will be considered for publication as articles featured in a Special Issue of Blockchain Enabled Energy Markets, which will be co-edited by Dr. Jesus Nieto-Martin (London Business School) and Dr. Sarah Hambridge (Energy Web Foundation).

Submission requirements

Poster submissions should be in the form of a short paper/abstract describing the main contributions and the merits of the proposed ideas as well as reporting initial results and the challenges towards a full-fledged solution of the problem under consideration. Abstracts will be evaluated in terms of research objectives, (proposed) methodology and a discussion of (expected) outcomes, with focus on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions and promote collaborations.  

An abstract should be a one-page PDF (including references) using 10-point Times New Roman font on 12-point leading, formatted in two columns with .25" between the columns and in a text block no more than 6.5" wide by 9" deep, which on U.S. letter paper means 1" margins on all sides.

Please provide the following information in your PDF file:
        ▪       poster title
        ▪       author names, affiliations, and email addresses
        ▪       which authors, if any, are students

Please also include the following signed statement as a separate pdf attachment for each of the authors:

I certify that the attached written or electronically transmitted material is my own work. I further certify that (a) I have formally cited or otherwise fully acknowledged the quotations, ideas, and wording used here from other sources, whether published or unpublished, in written or electronic form, (b) I have engaged in no falsification or misrepresentation of data or experience in this submission.


Please also note whether one of the authors, preferably lead author, would be available to present the poster at the EventHorizon 2018 on April 18.

Submissions are to be made via email to [log in to unmask] <mailto:[log in to unmask]> by February 28, 2018. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection via email by March 12, 2018.
