Special session proposals

The Congress welcomes proposals for a wide range of session types: panel discussions, birds-of-a-feather sessions, hands-on demonstrations, etc. Proposals must be uploaded to the EasyChair portal, using this template. They will be reviewed by the EUNIS 2023 Scientific Committee (ESC). Acceptance notifications will be sent out by 28 Mar, 2023.

Guidelines for paper submission

All submissions have to be uploaded to the EasyChair portal, to be reviewed by the EUNIS 2023 Scientific Committee (ESC). A single submission process will be used. A submission consists of a 4-page to 10-page paper, which includes an abstract of no more than 300 words, and a short bio of the author(s).

The submissions have to follow the EasyChair template.

1. Submissions can request an oral presentation, poster or other format such as panel discussion or birds-of-a-feather session. To ensure a good balance, the program committee may decide to offer a different format to that chosen. Accepted papers will appear in a special issue of the European Journal of Higher Education IT (see for 2022).
2. Beyond this first selection, the Scientific Committee will choose papers among accepted submissions for one or more of the following purposes:

  • Nomination for the Elite award, which recognizes and promotes best practice in the use of information systems in higher education in Europe.
  • Nomination for the Dørup award, given for outstanding and innovative applications of information technology in an educational setting.
  • Transmission to the Vietsch Foundation for possible funding.
  • Publication in the open access EPiC Series in Computing, indexed by Scopus (see for 2022). Papers proposed for publication will have to comply with the EasyChair publications template. Papers published in EPiC will not appear in the EJHEIT Journal.
