Call for Papers
2nd Conference Blogs in Tourism

Date:        September 8th, 2008
Venue:      Krems, Austria

Blogs and related community forums are useful sources of information for
tourist stakeholders. What is being said about a destination? How can the
information process in Blogs be used and which industry strategies exist for
handling these virtual communities?
After the great success of the First International Conference on Blogs in
Tourismin July 2007, the Second Conference will focus on:
•           analysing Blogs and related community forum content, 
•           understanding the process of information exchange between
tourists and tourism stakeholders, 
•           analysing and developing tourism 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 such as information
extraction and computer linguistic aspects of travel blogs as well as the
tourist aspects, esp. the eMarketing side.

Papers should be in English, between 4000 and 7000 words in length and
contain unpublished research. The conference proceedings contain accepted
papers. 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. Paper submissions are accepted only in electronic form. Please
send your papers to Dr. Klemens Waldhör, klemens.waldhoer at kremsresearch.at.
