We see the proposed gathering of scholars and tourism professionals as taking the form of 5 possible subsections, addressing issues in intercultural communication, identity formation, representations of the tourist/traveller, the business side of tourism and patterns of leisure behaviour.

1. Communicating in Tourist Contexts
2. Travelling Identities
3. Representations of Tourist Experience
4. Tourism-biz
5. Conceptualizing the Holiday

It is proposed therefore to hold a two-day conference on “Routes and Roots”: Identity and Intercultural Exchange in Travel and Tourism” at the Department of Languages and Cultures, University of Aveiro, Portugal on the 28th and 29th of June 2012 and we accordingly invite abstracts (maximum of 250 words) for papers of up to 20 minutes duration on any of the topics mentioned above (with an explicit reference to the section in which you wish to give it) , to be received before 15th May 2012.
