HEC conference language is English. All presentations need to be done in English, and only proposals submitted in English will be considered.
All proposals for HEC 2016 must be submitted using the online submission system. Please create a username and password. Afterwards you can access the submission form that will allow you to enter your proposal. Please note that the text-boxes will only allow a limited number of words, see more details and examples of forms in Formats of Presentation.
Please pay attention that delegates need to limit their active participations, as first presenter, chair, or discussant, to a maximum of four.
Once provided with a username and password you can re-enter the website at any time prior to the submission deadline in order to change or update your data and proposal.
You are also requested to list for each (co-)author if they are planning to participate in the conference. We need one attending and presenting author per paper. You will not be held accountable for the total number listed, and this does not mean authors are registered. This information is solely for our planning of the conference.
Please remember to keep your username and password safe - you will need them again to register for the conference.
Please do not put your name, or co-authors names in the files you upload. Only enter them in the ConfTool. This is for double-blind review purposes.
For scheduling purposes, presenting delegates (incl chairs and discussants) are expected to be available on all three days of the conference. Please arrange your travels accordingly.
All abstract of the accepted proposals will be part of the conference program book (including ISBN) which will be provided online (open access).
Proposals for contributions are welcome from all fields of higher education research. The criteria used in reviewing each proposal will be as follows:
The proposal should be directly related to a topic of interest for higher education research;
it should involve systematic enquiry of an empirical or analytic nature and should make reference to a theoretical framework;
the background, method, results and implications should be set out clearly in a manner which is accessible to an international audience;
it should take account of the European and/or international context;
it should help a dialogue to develop by reference, for example, to current policies or intellectual and educational traditions; and
Symposium submissions and roundtables need to explain what levels of learning, teaching, and organizing they address.
