Introduction and Process

APTA 2023 TiP Session Chair: Dr. Dae-Young Kim(University of Missouri, USA) (


As a pre-conference event, APTA annual conference provides a workshop for graduate students to interactively discuss their on-going research with peers, colleagues, and leading supervisors and scholars in the field. Graduate students at all stages are encouraged to participate. If a research proposal is accepted, the student will have about 15 minutes presentation time, and 15 minutes Q &A time and feedbacks from scholars. If a research proposal is NOT accepted, we recommend the paper to the Poster presentation.

* This special session enables graduate students to share and develop their research ideas in a critical but              encouraging environment, get feedback from leading scholars in the hospitality and tourism field, explore            research topics and issues for future research, and build relationships with other students and scholars from around the world.

Submission Guidelines

  • All submissions will go through a review process. Students will be notified about the review outcome, along with recommendations to improve the proposal before the workshop. Accepted proposals will be included in the APTA 2023 proceedings.

  • The best research proposal will receive an award and recognition at the main Conference event.

  • Submissions must be written in English and prepared in MS Word (2007 or later). Pdf files of abstracts will not be accepted.

  • All submissions should be free of grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors.
