Please announce the following conference:

Blogs in Tourism

Date:	July, 12th 2007
Venue: 	Kitzbühel, Austria

Rapid growth in the 'blogosphere' has empowered travellers to both access
'word of mouth' recommendations from many sources and to post their own
product/ destination reviews. Industry and destination marketing agencies
have an imperative to understand what is being said about them by consumers,
and to develop strategies to manage the impacts of online peer to peer

The first annual travel and tourism blogs conference aims to bring together
experts on travel blogs - analysing their content, understanding the process
of information exchange, and industry strategies for engaging with these
virtual communities.
Papers are invited from academics and practitioners in any of these areas.
Papers should address either technological issues like information
extraction and computer linguistic aspects of travel blogs as well as the
touristic aspects, esp. the eMarketing side.

Papers should be in English and between 4000 and 7000 words in length.

Papers should contain unpublished research. Following the conference, a
selection of papers will be peer reviewed for inclusion in a special issue
of the Journal of Vacation Marketing.

Participation in the conference is on an invitation basis and will depend on
the quality and the relevance of the paper for the tourism industry.

Deadline for paper submissions: April, 20th 2007.
Notification of acceptance: May, 10th, 2007.

Paper submissions are accepted only in electronic form. Please send your
