***Submissions are now closed.***

  • papers (15-20 min), max. 300 words

  • panels (3-4 presenters), max. 1,200 words

  • roundtables (5-8 speakers with brief position statements), max. 1,500 words

  • digital projects (individuals or teams), max. 300 words

A panel or roundtable proposal should articulate the overall topic, its interest to the field, and each presenter’s contribution. We encourage people to form panels and roundtables with diversity and inclusion in mind.

Digital showcase proposals for a poster or a brief presentation should highlight the relevance of the digital work to Victorian teaching or scholarship practices that make use of information technologies to address the conference theme and/or solve problems in interesting or original ways. First priority will be given to presenters who are not participating in regular panels or round tables. All participants will be listed in the conference program.

We also invite you to create your own cfp, following the above guidelines for panels and roundtables. Submit your open call for papers for a panel or roundtable you wish to organize to no later than January 27th. We will be delighted to host your call on this website here.

All submissions should include brief CVs for all presenters (1-2 pp.).


Conference participants may moderate other sessions, but otherwise should not appear in more than one session.
