We received over 1,000 submissions for the Congress over the Call for Special Sessions and the Call for Proposals. Both calls are now closed and the review process is complete.
All authors received feedback on their submissions from blind reviewers by mid-December. Those whose paper proposal was accepted must now proceed to prepare and submit their final paper and register for the Congress.
SUBMIT FINAL PAPERS:
Submit your final text on EasyChair as soon as possible following one of two formats; 2-page extended abstract for the Congress App (by February 26th), or the Springer-published book chapter in the official IEA2021 Congress proceedings (this format requires the Springer Consent to Publish form; due February 16th). Make sure you use the right template for these! Your final submission should account for reviewer comments and suggestions. Please follow all formatting instructions carefully to avoid delays in publication or exclusion of your written submission.
The template for Extended Abstracts by Practitioners differs somewhat from that for researchers. Templates for each are below:
Please follow the stated font sizes and spacing in the Springer Book Chapter template, if you discover inconsistencies between the layout and the text.
