Submissions for papers and posters that fit with the broad theme of ‘Using evidence in times of uncertainty’ are invited via EasyChair.

Following double blind peer review by the members of the International Programme Committee, accepted papers will be delivered at the conference as 20 minute oral presentations, and poster participants will be invited to participate in a ‘Poster madness’ session (one of the highlights of EBLIP9).

After the conference, presenters will be encouraged to submit their papers to practitioner-focussed open access journals, and to contribute to a special feature in the EBLIP Journal. See, for example, the feature from EBLIP9 in 2017.
