Theme and context

Technological developments impact all industries including tourism, hospitality, events and education, and it seems that this process has accelerated in the past months, which has brought both positive and negative impacts such as:

  • How do these technologies (and what technologies) impact the industries we teach for, our research, and the way we teach?
  • What does digital transformation do to our business models, organizational structures, operations, marketing & finance and how we work in hospitality, tourism and events?
  • Will technological developments impact the way we do research, and what opportunities will big data, biometric research tools, AR/VR, new methods and software, etc. be offering us?
  • Importantly, what about educational innovations, new ways of teaching, examining and assessing?
  • Is there a role for AI in education?
  • What are the best ways to reach out to alumni, to mitigate the drop in international student exchange (i.e., COIL), and to deal with the impact of having to teach online instead of in a traditional classroom setting?

These questions and many others will be examined and discussed interactively during our first virtual EuroCHRIE conference in 2021.

There is an opportunity to present a number of papers for the research track and for discussions in relation to educational roundtables. If you are interested in submitting your work for either of these tracks then please read and complete the required paperwork by no later than Sunday 21st February 2021.


Research Track

The purpose of the research track is to create a number of small moderated discussion and brainstorming groups around key themes related to technology in our industry. Interested authors are asked to submit a one-page structured abstract to join the discussion. The submission will not go through a traditional peer-review process, but submission suitability will be evaluated against the following criteria.

Call for Structured Abstracts

Education Track – Roundtable discussions (20 minutes)

If you would like to contribute to a roundtable discussion, prepare a short brief that outlines your concept in relation to an aspect of teaching, learning or assessment for review. The roundtable will consist of a 10-minute presentation by yourself and then 10 minutes of discussions with attendees. Your submission for review should be no more than 200 words, If you are interested in being considered then please complete the form.

Submit Roundtable Outline

Mark the dates on your calendars and join us on 30th and 31st of March 2021, to be inspired, to discuss, to learn, to network whilst enjoying the good company of each other!
