Call for Papers Open  |  1 AUGUST

Call for Papers Close  |  1 OCTOBER

Revised Papers Due  |  15 NOVEMBER


All submissions must follow the guidelines outlined in the Paper Formatting guidelines.

When you submit your paper, you will be asked to sign an agreement about the use of the paper. Your paper should be identified clearly as a full research paper or a working research paper. If your paper is accepted, at least one author must register, pay and attend the Conference to present the paper.

All paper submissions must also include a Transfer of Copyright Agreement. This form must be read and consented to as part of your paper submission. 

All submissions will go through a blind peer review process managed by the Co-Chairs of the Scientific Committee, in conjunction with the Scientific Committee's Editorial Board and other members of the Scientific Committee. All submissions will be provided with reviewers’ feedback and suggestions to further improve the quality of the research. 


Papers submitted in this category are research work, or work presenting conceptual and theoretical development, that are complete. The paper should be between 4,000 and 5,000 words (including references, tables and figures) and will be double-blind, peer reviewed by two reviewers nominated by the Editorial Board of the Scientific Committee. 

All papers must be original submissions that have not already been published. Full research papers are eligible for nomination by reviewers for the ‘CAUTHE Award for Best Full Paper’. Full research papers submitted by a PhD student on work derived from their study are eligible for nomination by the reviewers for the ‘Bill Faulkner Memorial Award for Best PhD Paper’. To qualify in this category, the primary author must be a student and the author’s registered supervisor must be listed as the co-author. More information about Awards can be found at here

Those presenting a Full Research Paper will be allotted a 20-minute oral presentation in the program. 


Working papers are those for which a substantial amount of the research work, or conceptual and theoretical development is mostly complete. Working papers should be between 1,200 and 1,500 words (including references, tables and figures). 

The paper will be blind peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee. All papers must be original submissions that have never been published.

Those presenting a Working Research Paper will either be allotted a 20-minute oral presentation in the program or will present during the poster session. 


All authors who have their submission accepted for presentation must register and pay for their attendance, at a minimum, for the day of the Conference on which they are presenting. Accepted presenters will be given access to the Early Bird Registration rates.

Oral Presentations (Full Research Papers or Working Research Papers assigned to this presentation type) will be allocated 20 minutes each (15 minutes for the presentation with 5 minutes for questions). A chair will run each concurrent session of presentations. 

Prepare your PowerPoint presentation in 16:9 aspect ratio and save your presentation file to a USB for uploading in the Speaker Preparation Room on site. It is NOT necessary to send the file to Leishman Associates prior to the Conference.

Poster Presentations (Working Research Papers assigned to this presentation type) will be displayed in the venue foyer area for the duration of the conference and presenters are requested to stand with their poster during the scheduled Poster Session to discuss their work. The poster displayed at the conference is required to be in A0 size and in portrait orientation. 


There are once again a number of awards on offer for 2024, including Best Paper, Best Poster, Best PhD Scholar's Paper, Fellows Award, Hospitality & Society Award and the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management Awards.

CAUTHE 2024 Carer Support Scheme For Conference Attendance 

The CAUTHE Executive is pleased to invite applications for the Carer Support Scheme to assist CAUTHE members to attend the 2024 CAUTHE Conference, 6-9 February in Hobart, Tasmania. 

The scheme is open to all CAUTHE members, including Higher Degree Research students.

The aim of the scheme is to provide assistance to those who would like to attend the conference in person but have carer responsibilities or needs that result in an additional financial burden. 

Further details and a short application form can be downloaded below. The application will close on 15 November 2023.


For both full (4,000-5,000 words) and working conference papers, authors have the option to publish the paper in its entirety or publish only the paper abstract in the conference proceedings. The conference proceedings will be published and distributed online during and through the conference channels. Authors of full and working papers will be required to give their permission (sign a transfer of copyright agreement) to have their manuscript or abstract published in the conference proceedings.

For prospective authors considering post-conference publication plans, there will be a conference special issue of the Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management to which authors of selected full and working papers will be invited to submit a paper. For authors of a full conference paper, the manuscript would need to be significantly expanded upon and revised to adhere to JHTM’s author guidelines and paper word limit (6,000-8,000 words). Excellent quality conference papers will be selected for submission and potential publication in the special issue. All selected papers will go through a double-blind review process managed by the special issue editors and the editor-in-chief of the journal. Papers submitted to the special issue will need to comply with the submission guidelines and quality standards of the JHTM.
