WOA 2024 XXV Workshop in collaboration with EGOS Colloquium


In order to account for the shorter lasting time of this call for paper, with respect to previous years, the Workshop Program will mix up past and recent approaches. We are keeping the distinction between papers and work-in-progress contributions, but the final upload of the full paper (for the paper session) is not mandatory (even if it is strongly encouraged in order to have the possibility to present and discuss completed research). Thus, we kindly invite scholars to submit to:


Short papers presenting completed research – including theoretical, methodological, findings, and discussion and contributions sections – may be submitted in such a session. Authors of short papers accepted to present in a paper session, are invited – but not obliged to- upload a full version of the paper, possibly addressing reviewers indications, so that the track chairs can circulate them among the authors presenting in the same session.


Abstracts about work in progress, research ideas or early-stage works eliciting feedback, must be addressed in this session. Indeed, this session is suitable for idea exchange and open discussion of research projects and ideas in an early phase of development. Authors of abstracts, accepted to be presented in a work in progress session, are invited to produce a printed copy of a poster that presents the research in progress.. Posters will be on display during the whole conference and there will be dedicated sessions to present and discuss.


Short papers (Paper session) and abstracts (Work in progress session) must be submitted electronically via EasyChair by the deadline MAY 15, 2024. Contributions will be double-blind reviewed.  

Short papers should comprise 3000 words including graphs, figures, tables, and references. The submission must include a Title page and a Main document, to be uploaded as separated files. Documents should be uploaded in a pdf format. 

Structured abstracts should comprise 300 words and should include: 

  • Purpose 
  • Design/Methodology /Approach/Intervention 
  • Results 
  • Limitations 
  • Research/Practical Implications 
  • Originality/Value 

Notification of acceptance will be communicated by June 5, 2024. 

Guidelines and criteria for posters 

Work in progress session: Posters are short, printed presentations displayed on large boards (100 h x 70 w centimeters; portrait format). Individual posters will be clustered in thematic work in progress sessions lasting 45-60 minutes each. Since the aim of this session is to generate a dynamic discussion among presenters and the audience, at the beginning a facilitator will lead an introductory round in which each presenter introduces her/his poster with a brief statement about objectives and (expected) results (approx.  3 minutes each). It follows a brief informal discussion (questions, comments, etc.) and then the audience  members will have the possibility to go through posters and interact with presenters. Presenters of the posters are kindly asked to bring handouts of their poster to the session for interested visitors.
