ESPAnet 2020 – Call for Abstracts and Opening Registration

This is a call for papers for the ESPAnet 2020 conference in Leuven. Additionally, we would like to inform you that the conference registration has opened.

Abstract submission
To submit an abstract of a paper that you wish to present, please create an account in the conference management tool and upload your abstract by indicating the thematic stream to which you wish to submit:
(A list of all streams can be found on the conference website.)

The deadline for abstract submission is 15 April 2020.

Abstracts should have a maximum length of 400 words (including references) and submitted as PDF. When uploading your abstract, please mention (all) author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address(es).

Abstracts will be ranked by stream convenors, but it is the conference committee who will inform successful applicants by 30 May 2020. Please bear in mind that the decision about acceptance of the paper will exclusively be communicated to the person who submitted the paper via the conference management tool.

You can register to the conference via this link:

There are three important registration deadlines;

  • early-bird registration: 15 June 2020
  • final registration for paper presenters: 01 July 2020
  • final registration for non-presenting participants: 23 August 2020.

Please note that the deadline for presenters on 01 July is a strict and definitive one. That is, initially ‘accepted papers’ of which no presenter is registered by then will be taken out of the programme to make space for papers which were initially given the status of ‘discussion paper’.

We look forward to your registrations and your submitted papers,
