Please note, when registering you need to upload proof that you currently are a Ph.D. student before completing your payment.

To do so, they will need to register as a paying delegate in the conference.

EURAM automatically provides certificates for reviewing a paper during the month of April. Moreover, the reviewers are all listed in the e-proceedings with their name, first name and affiliation.

Why is my paper in a different track from the one I submitted to?
The Conference Programme Committee and SIG chairs sometimes move papers to match them better with papers of a similar theme.

Will my paper be published anywhere?
For EURAM 2017, the abstracts and full papers will be published in e-format. The papers will be accessible for registered delegates only. Only accepted papers that also are presented at the conference will be published in this e-format.
You will be able to view the full programme on our website. You can select sessions/tracks that you wish to attend by searching the programme using the title of the paper, keywords, authors’ names, etc.
Abstracts and full papers are made available a few weeks ahead of the conference so that discussants and chairs can prepare for their sessions. The Conference Programme Committee believes that this is important for research dissemination. However, if you do not want your paper to be available, you may request for it to be removed.
Conference Programme Books will be available for consultation in key locations (publishers’ plaza, coffee break areas, registration area, etc.). The Conference Programme Books will contain the titles and authors of all accepted papers. However, the Conference Programme Book does not contain the abstracts or full paper texts. With most tracks, the track or SIG Chair will suggest potential publication outlets to facilitate publication of the best papers.

10. I will be presenting a paper at the conference

Can I choose what day/time to present my paper?
No, you cannot. The task of building the conference programme is very complex and requires the collaboration of over 150 chairs. EURAM focuses on offering a programme with scholarly coherence. We try to avoid overlap between related subject areas. We do anything reasonably possible to accommodate the very varying needs and wants of a myriad of stakeholders, while still keeping the objective of scholarly coherence in sight. For this reason, we cannot take personal preferences into account. If you cannot attend the full conference from 09:00 (Wednesday 21 June 2017) until 13:00 (Saturday 24 June 2017), please make sure that one of your co-authors has registered before 26 April 2017.

There are two different session types at the EURAM Conference. These are:

  • Paper Development Sessions
  • Competitive Paper Sessions.

Guidelines for presenting a paper will be posted on the conference website in due course after the e-notification of acceptance.

What audio-visual equipment will be available?
Rooms will be equipped with a beamer and a PC. Facilities to connect your own laptop or MacBook will be present.

How many people will be at my session?
Attendance varies from session to session. The organising team cannot influence this - various factors influence the popularity of sessions, including timing of the session, topic of interest, other concurrent sessions, etc. However, due to health and safety rules the numbers are limited by room capacity.

Can I get a certificate for presenting my paper? What about my co-authors?
EURAM does not provide certificates for presenting a paper. Each registered author will receive an attendance certificate in the delegate pack.
