Organised by the International Federation for Information Technology and Travel & Tourism (IFITT), the ENTER2020 pre-conference event provides the unique opportunity for postgraduate (doctoral) students to interactively present and discuss their research with peers, and leading scholars in the field. Postgraduate students at all stages (i.e. beginning as well as nearly completed) are encouraged to participate.
This full-day workshop will give participants the opportunity to improve their research idea, proposal and structure of their work in a critical but supportive environment by getting feedback from mentors, experts and senior researchers within the IT and Tourism research community. Participants get support questions related to academic and research careers, and extend their network with peers, researchers, industry and universities from around the world. Journal editors will provide input on how to write and submit articles to leading academic journals.
