Submission of Abstract

If you are interested in attending the conference and making a presentation, please submit a 5-page single-spaced (including text, diagrams, tables and references) abstract of your research by email to dea2007@temple.edu before July 31, 2006.

You are also invited to submit proposals for a panel discussion in a similar 5-page format. Panels involving practitioners discussing challenges in the implementations of DEA or performance measurement systems are particularly encouraged.

Abstracts will be evaluated based on their potential research contribution and ability to stimulate interest and discussion at the conference. If your abstract is accepted for presentation at the conference, it will be published in the conference proceedings and you will need to email the complete updated paper describing your research-in-progress one month before the conference to the discussant and to dea2007@temple.edu. Your research study should be sufficiently complete by the time of the conference to enable a stimulating presentation and meaningful discussion. At least one co-author of an accepted abstract for the conference must pre-register before November 15, 2006 for its continued inclusion in the program.

The abstract must be prepared using 11-point font, formatted for 8.5 inch by 11 inch paper, with 1 inch margins (top, bottom, left and right). PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE PAGE NUMBERS IN YOUR DOCUMENT.
