Call for Participation: JHTM 2023 Paper Hackathon

The Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management (JHTM) is organising a Paper Hackathon during the Consumer Behavior in Tourism Symposium – Emerging Topics 2023 (CBTS-ET 2023) from 7-9 December 2023, in Trier, Germany


CAUTHE supports its official journal with activities which help strengthen the journal and provide benefits to members. The Paper Hackathon is held during a reputable international conference, with numerous international delegates and the potential to promote the journal and recruit papers from researchers. See past hackathons: 2022 Paper Hackathon | 2021 Paper Hackathon.


The goal of the Hackathon is to support conference participants to network and form partnerships with the aim of developing and pitching a research idea for a paper publication in the JHTM.


The format is an intense three-day Paper Hackathon during the days of the conference. On the first day of the conference, researchers willing to participate will have the opportunity to meet, match and mix with others to form groups during a ‘research speed dating’ procedure. Groups will then work on their own time, place and pace during the first two days of the conference in order to develop a study/paper proposal (paper-a-thon); groups will have the opportunity to work under the mentorship of prominent tourism scholars and they will receive constructive and valuable feedback for their research proposals. On the last day of the conference, groups will present their paper-a-thon to an evaluation panel receiving more feedback and suggestions for their research idea. Groups with highly evaluated papers-a-thon will be invited to submit their completed manuscripts for a fast-tracked review process and a possible publication at the JHTM.
