Conference Description:

Conference Aims and Scope
The twenty-first century has brought new challenges for tourism. Climate change, infectious diseases, economic crises, terrorism, globalisation, and entrenched social problems pose threats and create an uncertain tourism environment that affects destinations and their populations in virtually every corner of the contemporary world. To keep pace with these challenges, governments, businesses, communities, and tourism organisations need to continuously assess environmental factors, to identify future trends and to examine various response policies and management techniques to decrease risk and uncertainty. Bearing all these in mind, ICOT 2011 aims to contribute to the debate on tourism in relation to different aspects of uncertainty, by stimulating discussion and exchange of ideas between tourism professionals, academics, researchers, policy-makers, consultants, practitioners, government officials and postgraduate students from tourism-related fields.
ICOT 2011 will also give participants an opportunity to combine an effective conference trip with a holiday on Rhodes, one of the most famous Greek Islands and a top holiday destination.

The conference will focus on a broad range of topics related to tourism, including (but not limited to):

* Climate Change and Natural Disasters
* Health Problems / Infectious Diseases / Epidemiology
* Economic Crises and Risk
* Uncertainty and Risk
* Destination Attributes Related to Uncertainty
* Role of Uncertainty and Risk in the Tourist Experience
* Globalisation Effects
* Tourism, Terrorism, Safety and Security
* Tourism Development, Policy and Planning
* Economic/Social/Environmental/Cultural Impact of Tourism
* Community Responses to Risk and Uncertainty.
* Resiliency Planning
* Sustainable Tourism
* Alternative and Special Interest Tourism
* Information Technology in Tourism
* Negotiation in Tourism
* Industry’s Role in Managing Growth Transportation and Tourism
* Authenticity and Commodification
