Call For Papers


Update: Speaker applications will re-open in Autumn 2020

After discussions with the IT²EC Committee, it has been agreed that the 2020 "Digital Twin" theme is sufficiently relevant to be continued onto the 2021 programme. Providing papers are still relevant, speakers are invited to retain their position.

This year's call for papers will be tailored specifically to fill gaps within the programme. Further information will be available in due course. 

Background information

IT²EC provides a platform for the military and civil security/resilience communities to exchange knowledge on innovation, simulation and education effectiveness, and interoperability.

Ahead of each conference, the IT²EC technical planning committee welcomes papers and panel proposal abstracts exploring these themes from military, civil, academia and government personnel.

Authors are required to identify which of the conference pillars their paper addresses. These are used to help the committee understand the authors' perspective in order to build a coherent agenda.

The Chatham House Rule

"When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed."

The Chatham House Rule is not in effect by default. Speakers retain the right, however, to invoke it at the beginning of their presentation whereupon it will last for the duration of that presentation only.

At no point is recording equipment of any kind permitted to be used in any conference room. This includes filming and audio recording. Photos are permitted provided there is no flash.
