(Proceedings published by Springer - Journal special issue in JITT, Springer)

Every year, hundreds of tourism academics, industry representatives,

government officials, students and entrepreneurs come together to share,

discuss and challenge latest developments in information technology in the

fields of travel, tourism and hospitality. With the theme "eTourism: Towards

Welcoming Academics and the Industry

The conference brings together the research community and industry, and

it is organized in three streams, namely industry track, destinations track,

and research track. If you are representing tourism industry or destinations,

please see suitable calls for presentations at

The conference also features six to eight world-class keynote speakers

discussing the most pressing topics within eTourism.


The 26th edition of ENTER will take place in Nicosia, Cyprus. Nicosia is the

capital of Cyprus; a status it has enjoyed for 1000 years since the 10th

century, though its beginnings date back 5000 years to the Bronze Age.

Nicosia is a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city, rich in history and culture

that combines its historic past with the amenities of a modern city. Cyprus

is an island drenched in sun and mythology, at the crossroads of ancient

civilizations. 9,000 years of history gathered on one island. Cyprus packs a

remarkable array of sights and attractions, museums and archaeological

parks, throbbing beach resorts, pine covered mountains, medieval fortresses

and ancient temples. Over the last few years, it has become one of the top

touristic European destinations breaking in consecutive years the record of

tourist arrivals. It is expected that in 2018, more than 3.6 million tourists

will visit Cyprus and plans target a steady intake of 5 million tourists per

year. More information about Nicosia and Cyprus as well as what the island

and its capital offer can be found on the conference web site.
