ENTER 2020 Conference:
Surrey, United Kingdom
January 8-10, 2020
*Call for Research Notes, Demo Papers and Late-Breaking Results (LBR)*
Organized by *the International Federation for Information Technology and Travel & Tourism (IFITT)*, the annual ENTER conference provides a unique venue for researchers, industry representatives, government officials, students and entrepreneurs to come together and share, discuss and challenge the latest developments in information technology in the fields of travel and tourism. With the theme *Responsible eTourism* the ENTER 2020 conference will focus on exploring ways technology can be used to ensure a positive impact of tourism on society, environment, and economy.

In addition, there will be *special sessions* on Smart Tourism Cities (https://enter2020.ifitt.org/smart-tourism-cities/) and on Innovation (https://enter2020.ifitt.org/innovation/). We call for the latest research and case studies on emergent and cutting-edge ICT concepts, applications, and business models to be shared in the conference.

The 27th edition of ENTER will take place at the University of Surrey, approximately 40 miles southwest of London, UK. The University of Surrey is a global community of ideas and people, dedicated to life-changing education and research, and ranked as a top five program for hospitality and tourism management by the Shanghai Global Rankings 2018. Within the University of Surrey, the Digital Visitor Economy Research Group is dedicated to researching, endorsing, and advocating the power of information technology and digital media in the visitor economy. The University of Surrey is located just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of the Town of Guildford, offering a vibrant blend of entertainment, culture and history. With excellent road and rail links, and close proximity to Heathrow and Gatwick airports, delegates and guests can gather in Guildford with great ease. Although London is less than 40 miles away and approximately 30 minutes by train, the area is surrounded by rolling countryside and picturesque villages.
*Guidelines for Research Notes, Demo Papers and LBR*
*Research notes* present *highly promising findings* not developed enough at the scale of a full paper. The evaluation of research notes will be based on originality and (potential) importance rather than maturity or completed evaluation. Research notes will be presented orally at the conference. However, the presentation time will be shorter as compared to full paper presentations. An award for the best research note will be presented during the conference.
*Demonstrations (Demos)* showcase *research prototypes or commercial systems* in a demo session. Demo papers must be based on an implemented system that has some innovative aspect. The demo paper should contain a description of the system including a discussion of its purpose and contribution. It may include citations to any publications that support the work.
*Late-Breaking Results (LBR)* are research-in-progress papers that must contain *original and unpublished research ideas and preliminary results* that are relevant to this Call for Papers. In addition, papers introducing recently started research projects or summarizing project results are also welcome. LBR papers will be presented in a poster session together with the demos.
All accepted research notes, demo papers and LBR papers will be published in the e-Review of Tourism Research (eRTR) (http://ertr.tamu.edu/). They must be written in English and should be prepared in a Word document according to the eRTR formatting guidelines (http://enter2020.ifitt.org/guidelines-ertr/). *Research notes* should overall comprise *between 2500 and 4000 words*; *demo papers and LBR* should overall comprise *approximately 1500 words*.
All research notes, demo papers and LBR are evaluated in a *single-blind peer review process*: all submissions should include information identifying the authors or their affiliations. All submissions and reviews will be handled electronically through the EasyChair submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=enter2020.
