Submission Guide


Conference events will be organized online and offline. Due to COVID-19 alternative forms of presentation via Tecent Meeting will be made available for those that cannot travel to be able to present their papers.

DHA 2020 accepts both comprehensive research papers and short articles. Authors of accepted papers in both formats will present their study in one of the oral presentation sessions and conference proceedings. A suggested approach would be to include an overview of the theoretical context, research objectives or questions, research methodology, main findings and conclusions. Please submit your submissions as a word document via EasyChair. All submissions will be subject to a double-blind review process.


Key dates are:

  • 10 June 2020    Paper submission deadline

  • 20 June 2020    Notification of acceptance/rejection

  • 20July 2020       Deadline for at least one author of each paper to register for DHA 2020 (Early bird date)
