Call for Papers
EDI Conference seeks to provide an international, inter- and transdisciplinary platform for exchange of ideas in the field of equality, diversity and inclusion in the world of work. The conference welcomes participation by academics, policy makers, and practitioners. Invited to conference, are both academic papers which make empirical, theoretical or methodological contributions, to be presented in academic streams, as well as experiences of policy makers and practitioners, which can be presented in pre conference workshops or round table discussions, and, if the stream permits, in the relevant streams.
Associated to this conference are: British Journal of Management; Cross-Cultural Management: an International Journal; Equality, Diversity, Inclusion: an International Journal; the European Journal of Industrial Relations; the European Journal of International Management. Pre selected best papers of the conference will be submitted to these journals who will process them according to their usual standards.
Papers(please submit online)
EDI Conference welcomes two forms of submissions to regular streams. Please register (no payment of fees required at this stage) and submit online. Payment can be done later as for any conference. Fees are not fixed yet but are in the region of 350 euros, inclusive of coffee breaks and lunches. Not paying fees prior to attending will result in accepted papers not being in the proceedings.
Developmental papers: These should be approximately 3000-5000 words, including references. This form of submission is suited for more developed ideas, initiatives and research projects.
- Full papers: These are longer contributions less than 10 000 words including references. This form of submission is more suited for completed research projects, policy and practice interventions.
Some stream chairs may allow for an extended abstract (300 to 500 words) for the February 15 deadline. However, acceptance will be subjected to submitting at least a developmental paper in time for the second round of reviews by May 15. Please check the possibility of sending an extended abstract with the relevant stream chair before doing so.
Papers must be submitted online. Formatting of papers: please see EDI submission guidelines
Proposals of contributions to pre-conference workshops can be less formal, requiring a short description or abstract only of 250 to 500 words, again to be submitted online to the relevant workshop.
Proposals of contributions to round tables must be made directly to Olivia Kyriakidou, firstname.lastname@example.org under the same format.
All submissions to the EDI conference are original pieces which were not published in books or journals, and possibly a text presented in a past conference, not published elsewhere, and seeking additional comments prior to journal submission.
You need to register online before you can submit a paper or contribution to workshop. Once registered, go to 'My Conference Area' and click on 'submit a paper'. Note that payment of conference fee can be made post registration, provided it is made before the conference. Early-bird fees apply in order to encourage early payment (see relevant page on website).
Paper presentations at the conference will be a maximum of 20 minutes long, with 10 minutes for questions and discussion. If stream chairs want or allow a different format, they will let you know in direct. Video projectors will be available in each conference room.
Proceedings of all accepted papers will be published in a memory drive, which will be distributed to conference delegates on the first day of the conference. Unless authors express a written objection to publishing their papers, we will consider submission of papers as consent for publication in this electronic form. Please note that stream chairs may also have other publication plans. Please consult them for further information.

Participants, who do not have accepted papers in the programme, can also attend the conference subject to paying the relevant conference fees. In order to access the conference fee information, please register through the registration section on the left pane.
