This Conference is born as a result of the academic cooperation among researchers from around the world in the field of tourism. This cooperation has led, among other initiatives, to the launching of a new title: ENLIGHTENING TOURISM. A PATHMAKING JOURNAL (ET).

The Conference aims are:
1) To provide a platform for debate and dissemination of research findings, new research areas and techniques, conceptual developments, and papers with practical applications;
2) To scope out innovative thinking in traditional topics such as different types of tourism and tourists, their needs and expectations;
3) To promote collaborative interactions between senior and junior researchers. This will include mentoring by senior researchers in a Workshop for Junior Researchers (WJR);
4) To provide a platform for full paper presentations, that further mutual understanding of the research lines being developed by participants;
5) To provide examples of best/good practices and technological innovation.

The Conference theme “Competition and Innovation in Tourism: New Challenges in an Uncertain Environment" reflects the current situation of great uncertainty, which characterises tourism worldwide. Within this theme, the following specific topics have been identified:

• Innovation Strategies
• Knowledge Management Processes and Practices
• Innovation and Technology
• Entrepreneurship
• Organisation Innovation
• Territorial System and Cultural Heritage
• Market Changing
• Complexity, Planning and Development
