Submission & Review

You are invited to submit abstracts for research papers, workshops, case studies, work in progress, hands-on activities, position papers, presentations and posters on one or more of the conference's themes in relation to ePortfolios, Open Badges, Identities, Trust and Blockchains.

Submissions that do not make clear references to one of the themes AND either ePortfolios, Open Badges, Personal Ledgers, Identities, Trust or Blockchains will not be considered for review.

    Following an open collaboration and review process, the ePIC 2017 proceedings will be published under ISBN 978-2-9540144-7-0.

    The submission and review process is organised in two steps: 

    • Conference presentations: the selection of the presentations is based on the review of the submission of a structured long abstract (between 500 to 700 words). All abstracts are reviewed to assess the quality and interest of a presentation. When accepted, authors are invited to submit a short/long paper and register as presenter / co-presenter.​
    • Conference proceedings: the selection of the contributions for the proceedings is based on the outcome of an open collaboration and review process. The process starts before the conference and finishes approximatively 4 months after the end of the conference.

    Organisation of the open collaboration/review/publishing process


    The submission of abstracts and management of the conference (registration, programme, etc.) will be done using Conftool.

    NB 1: All abstracts are to be submitted using the conference management service. To submit an abstract, please create an account and use the 'abstract' field to paste the abstract. Please, do not upload abstracts in separate files; only upload long/short papers, presentation files, posters and workshop handouts.

    NB 2: All accepted abstracts and papers will be published in the proceedings. Presentation slots will be distributed equally among speakers and organisations represented.
