In cooperation with the EJF-Academy for Education and International Cooperation, the University College of Business in Prague would like to invite you to an international conference dedicated to disabled citizens in tourism (as passengers and employees) in order to contribute to further improvement in this area within the Czech Republic and Germany.
THIS PROFESSIONALLY INTERPRETED MEETING SEEKS TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS:
- What opportunities do disabled visitors in DE/CZ have to use their leisure time?
- What possibilities are there to obtain information about stays suitable for disabled people in DE/CZ?
- What are the specific requirements of disabled people for their involvement in tourism?
- How do tourism entities (accommodation facilities, dining facilities, travel agencies, tourist information centers...) respond to these specific requirements in their destinations?
Another aim of the conference is to map and evaluate the barrier/barrier-free situation in selected destinations in the Czech Republic and Germany through field research, observation, the content analysis of documents and literary research. The issue of the disabled in tourism and their requirements will be simultaneously monitored. An integral part of the project is the issue of human resources in relation to the topic. Everyone somehow affected by or interested in the topic is invited. Send your papers for the conference in Czech, English or German by the deadline of 15 November 2019. The selected papers will be included in the peer-reviewed proceedings. Papers can only be definitively included in the proceedings after payment of the conference fee. The collection of papers will receive an ISBN and be submitted for review for indexing in scientific databases. The recommended length of the paper is 8 to 10 standard pages, including a bibliography (maximum 10 pages), and abstract of no more than 250 words.
