  • User engagement;
  • Audit, service development, novel product, technology or service innovation.

In widening the style of sessions and content the options for type of submission has also changed. There are three options and guidance files for submitting drafts for review. The files can be used by replacing the content in the files without changing the formatting:

  • Full Paper – for formal research or innovation papers, intended to be around 8 pages (~4000 words) published in the conference book and to be presented in the conference. There is Full Draft Paper Guidance
  • Short Paper – for formal research or innovation papers, intended to be around 4 pages published in the conference book. There is Short draft paper Guidance – this is only appropriate for those wanting to have just a poster with/without a quick fire presentation in the conference.

The final deadline for all the above submissions was 17.02.2017 17.00 CET



We will publish with IOSpress that isn’t open access. Last time AAATE was published by IOSpress
Delegates will receive a PDF for their use.

Note that T4I2017 will have its own abstract/short paper submission process and this will be announced in March 2017.

Contribution management for accepted Special Themed Sessions will be announced as and when they appear on the website – if they call for contributions but do not intend to generate full or short papers then they will have an alternative and quicker submission process than the Conference but not be published in the conference book.
