International Conference 2009 of the DRS Special Interest Group      on Experiential Knowledge


For EKSIG 2009, we invite position papers, which offer challenging new views on the subject. Position papers will be selected subject to a double blind review process by an international review team. In the first instance we ask for the submission of abstracts. Authors of selected abstracts will be asked to submit full papers.

We invite the submission of abstracts of 700-800 words (excluding references) by 1st December 2008. Authors of selected abstracts will subsequently be invited to submit full papers (4000-5000w) in early 2009.


Abstracts should be 700 - 800 words in length, excluding the header and references. The header should contain your name, institutional affiliation, address, email, and the title of the full paper. At the end of your abstract please add 5 keywords. Submissions should be in English language.

The criteria for selection are:

•Relevance to the conference theme

•Quality and rigour of research

•Clarity of presentation i.e. the abstract should clearly specify research intent and conduct including the research question or issue, the context in which it arises and has significance, the outline of the enquiry itself, and the outcomes.

Abstracts should be submitted by 1 December 2008 via e-mail to info@experientialknowledge.org.uk Abstracts should be sent as plain text in the body of the email from the lead researcher's email address. Please do not send attachments to help us to avoid spreading viruses. We will only accept one abstract per lead researcher (although you may be a co-author on another submission).

If your abstract is selected, you will be invited to submit a full paper in March. Full papers will be further selected for presentation at the conference. All papers selected for presentation at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings, an abstract booklet and a CD, which is the preferred format of the DRS. Papers that do not conform to the required format, however, may not be published. The conference has also agreed on a collaboration with the Journal of Research Practice, and selected papers will be published in the journal.
