Call for Papers

The 13th ISAHP conference will take place in London, UK from 4 to 7 August at the Paddington Hotel (click here to reserve at a special rate). In this conference we will have individual papers, posters, special sessions and round tables.

Individual Papers
We invite you to send us your original contributions on the topics of the ISAHP2016 conference. Individual authors can access the online submission system through this link. Recommended length for papers is two pages and you can use the given template (PDF, docx). Each paper will be reviewed by two peers, who will also give a suggestion on whether or not the paper submitted is of sufficient quality that the authors can be invited to submit an original contribution to one of the special issues. The deadline for submitting the individual papers is April 18, 2016. More detailed guidelines can be found here.

The Program Committee, supported by keynote speakers and track chairs, has been very active in organizing several special issues on relevant journals. Authors will have the opportunity to submit their original contributions to those special issues.

Poster presentations
We are glad to announce you that the ISAHP2016 conference, will be accepting poster presentations for the first time. An effective poster will help you engage colleagues in conversation and get your main point(s) across to as many people as possible. We invite you to submit the title and abstract of your poster presentation using the online submission system (the posters are submitted via the individual paper submission). All poster abstracts will be reviewed by peers. The deadline is April 18, 2016. More detailed guidelines and poster templates can be found here (link).

Special Sessions
Special sessions offer an opportunity to present a group of papers which have some common ground, like tackling a specific problem, using similar process/methods, similar application domain or geographical location of the case study. Primary goal is to have a cohesive set of presentations on a specific hot topic during the same session.

The process to submit a special session has changed. This year it will be a two-round process. In the first round you are requested to submit the special session idea and the presenters' names and topics of presentation (click here for the 1st round special session template). You can have 3-4 presenters in each special session. After filling in the template you should sent it by email to sessionproposals@isahp.org .The topics of their presentations should be within the conference's main tracks. The 1st round submission will be evaluated by the Program Committee, within one week. You can submit your special session idea until January 31, 2016. If it is accepted, you pass to the 2nd round.

For the 2nd round submission you will need to gather the papers (see template) from each participant in your special session, merge them in one file and submit this file, using the online submission process. For more detailed information, see the Guidelines. The deadline for the 2nd round submission is April 18, 2016.

Round tables
Roundtable presentations are the most flexible format offered at this conference, and may look quite different from session to session. The organizer has to gather the presenters for his Roundtable. Roundtable presenters will have about 20 minutes (total for all the presenters) of introduction, followed by 40 minutes of discussion and feedback. Roundtables are excellent venues for giving and receiving targeted feedback, engaging in in-depth discussions, and meeting colleagues with similar interests.

The submission process is very similar to the special sessions. More specifically, we have two rounds. In the first round the organizer needs to send by email to sessionproposals@isahp.org the initial idea following the given template (click here for the template). The idea will be evaluated by the Program Committee within one week from the submission. You can submit your special round table idea until January 31, 2016.

If the round table idea is accepted, you pass to the second round. This time you will need to enter the information about the round table using the online submission process. For more detailed information on the round submission process see the Guidelines. The deadline for submitting the round table is April 18, 2016.
